If you haven’t, you’re probably wondering why I’m mentioning it here. “The Naked Brothers Band” has nothing to do with naked people – indeed, it’s far from it. It features a name we know well in Silicon Valley and is a fun-spirited, insider’s perspective on a family with a quite famous surname: Draper.
What started as a family feature film that garnerned the Audience Award at the 2005 Hamptons International Film Festival, subsequently was picked up by Nickelodean as a series starting early last year. On Monday, set your DVR for 8pm to catch the NBB, featuring Polly Draper and a cameo of Tim Draper, from the venture capital institution, DFJ. The show has received international acclaim as one of Nickelodeon’s top television programs, including nominations at the 2007 Nickelodeon Australia Kids’ Choice Awards and the 2007 Nickelodeon U.K. Kids’ Choice Awards. Let’s see if Tim can act as well as he can pick financial winners.
