BlogTHAT, was created and developed by Jessica Bern and Deb Anderson, two real-life bloggers. Starring Jessica Bern, BlogTHAT is based on Jessica's blog BernThis.com, and follows a 42-year-old recently divorced single mom of a three-year-old trying to find her "new normal" in a world where nothing was ever normal in the first place. After her ex-husband left her for his mother, her friends disappeared for fear of catching the deadly "divorce" virus, and her entire family and long-term friends 3,000 miles away on the East Coast, Jessica is left to figure "it" out on her own.
Deb Anderson, the co- director and co-writer of the series, and I are using KickStarter as a way to raise the necessary funds to make this pilot. We intend to shoot the show over a period of approximately four days. The budget will cover the cost of insurance for the equipment, the rental of the equipment, the small crew and the actors, all of whom are willing to work on this project for way less than their talents truly deserve, and of course food for all or should we say, "Subway" sandwiches, pizza and all the fruit, candy and nuts available in the clearance aisle.
To give you an idea of what kind of a show BlogTHAT is, below is a small sample of dialogue from a scene in the pilot:
