If you're looking to help the rich fulfill their creative endeavors, Hansen's Kickstarter campaign starts Wednesday. Now that "To Catch A Pedator" (renamed "Hansen vs. Predator") is independent maybe we'll get a bit more detail about some of the things NBC was relatively mum on, like the pedo Texas prosecutor who off'd himself as The Man, assisted by Dateline, was about to ride on him for being pervy with an actor playing a 13-year-old boy. From the L.A. Times:
Chris Hansen is going back into the predator-catching business, but this time he's asking his fans to help him.
The veteran network news correspondent, known for the "Dateline NBC" investigative series "To Catch a Predator," is turning to crowd funding to support a new hidden-camera operation to capture men who use the Internet to find underage sex partners. The results will become the basis for a new series, "Hansen vs. Predator."
Starting Wednesday, people can contribute to a campaign that Hansen is launching on Kickstarter, the Internet crowd-funding site that enables people to contribute money to a venture or cause they are passionate about. Hansen's fundraising target is around $400,000.
