Take part in creating this hilariously outrageous series. Starring Steve Jessup an outlaw and internet hero.
UPDATE 9/24/12 Talk to Steve in person!
If you’ve ever been on the Internet, chances are you’ve come across Steve the DUI lawn mower guy. He’s been featured on shows like the O’Reilly Factor, CNN, Maury Povich and many others. You may know Steve as the drunk redneck that gets a DUI on a riding lawn mower. He never thinks he guilty or done anything wrong. It’s never his fault. And Steve, "knows his rights!"
Here is the original Steve arrest video to refresh your memory.
It’s time to get to know Steve Jessup a little better. Cameras will record Steve's life 24/7 capturing every ridiculous moment. So many fans have asked to meet Steve’s wife, and in "I know My Rights," you'll finally get the chance to meet her: Tina Jessup, the only lady who’ll put up with Steve’s shit. Steve talks about his good buddy Doodle on Facebook all the time. Fans will get to see the man up close and personal as we hang with Steve and Doodle while they screw up time and time again around their town haunts and, of course, at the Oyster Shack.
Camera’s will follow Steve’s every move to and from work. We'll see what boss would ever take on the drunken, stoned Steve challenge. And that said, we’ll probably see Steve get fired--I’m just sayin chances are probably pretty high--cameras or not!
This series is all Steve, wide open with absolutely nothing held back. Fans have long asked for a Steve TV series, and now with the help of Kickstarter, that wish can be a reality. TV networks like STARZ, SPIKE, HBO and others have expressed interest in Steve. They talk and talk and talk, meanwhile Steve fans wait and hope to see a series about Steve’s life. Mostly networks have cold feet to be responsible for Steve’s rowdy lifestyle. Flat out, the Networks will never be able to show the real Steve like a project funded by you the fans. YOU can make this TV series happen simply by purchasing your copy of season one on DVD or USB DIGITAL FILES.

WHERE WILL MY MONEY GO? CIGS AND BEER FOR STEVE!!!
…no, no, no MarcRyan.com Productions (MRP) has carefully budgeted and will allocate the funds for this production. MarcRyan.com was the original source for Steve. Additionally MRP has played a key role in several popular television productions. MRP recently co-created and produced Drinking Made Easy (Season One) currently running on HDnet. MRP also was a producer on Mudslingers currently airing on the Outdoor Channel.
Your funds will go to hire the best production crew possible to bring you the same quality of product you are used to seeing on networks like HBO or FX. Really talented people don’t work cheap. Most of the funds raised will go to hire the best directors, camera operators, producers, editors, and crew.
Then there is the equipment. Season One will be shot on the RED camera.
It is the primary camera for many productions these days. The RED
camera shoots unbelievable HD quality and is used to make TV series such as…
Justified(FX), Louie(FX), Shameless(Showtime) and movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and The Social Network.
This series will shoot in remote parts of Louisiana. To properly capture Steve’s life will take capable equipment and crew. There will be considerable travel, lodging and catering and expenses.
YOUR SUPPORT CREATES JOBS!One of the most exciting and positive things happening with your support of this project is the creation of JOBS. This series will take several months to create from Pre-Production to Post. There are many different people in the Louisiana film and TV industry that will be employed as a result of your efforts.
