CandyLand, a webseries by Damian Horan & Ali Scher, is an off-beat, satirical comedy featuring the toddlers of the Pacific Palisades Palace (preschool of choice for the über-wealthy socially elite of Southern California.) If you want your toddler enrolled, make sure her shoes are Gucci, her backpack is Louis Vuitton, and her survival instincts are razor-sharp!
In our first season Ema "the new girl" arrives in the Palisades and quickly realizes these kids play by their own set of rules. She immediately falls for Pear-- the kind of kid Luke Perry wished he had been when he was six.
But Lucy "The Queen Bee," will do ANYTHING to protect her man. She and her Toddlers in Tiaras crew will stop at nothing to keep Ema and Pear apart!
Set in a world drenched in unrestrained wealth and melodrama, CandyLand is a place where play dates are "penciled in," juice boxes have vintages, and recess is a social war-zone!
CandyLand was conceptualized and written by a very talented crop of USC graduate students. We have everything ready to go - cast, crew, even most of our locations. The only thing we don't have: MONEY!
Being starving-artist types, we lack the resources of our well-dressed, label loving toddler subjects. If only we could just take out a mortgage on our million dollar playhouses! So now we appeal to the inherent goodness (and perverse humor) of the Kickstarter community - YOU! Your donations will cover the costs, including insurance, studio teachers, food, costumes, equipment, and the over-the-top contract stipulations of our young stars. In short, you will bring to life the obscene and wonderful world of CandyLand.
