LOS ANGELES — Jesse Draper, one of the stars of the hit Nickelodeon show Naked Brothers Band, is about to star in weekly series about innovation in Silicon Valley in a show titled Valley Girl. The show will debut next month. Google CEO Tim Schmidt and Craig Newmark are among several Valley executives and VC’s who have been interviewed for the show.
Jesse knows a thing or two about the Valley and has some good connections when it comes to booking segments. Her dad is the venerable Valley VC Tim Draper.
I caught up with Jesse and her partner Sharon Lee earlier tonight at the AlwaysOn party here at the Sofitel hotel in Hollywood. They had lovely pink set, with pink flamingos!
They told me the first segment will be an interview with Valley VC Heidi Roizen. Expect the show in mid-July.
Editor’s Note: I shot this on my NokiaN95 and did not edit it. Rough, but worked out OK.
