About

wait... didn't this show already happen?

Why, yes. Yes it did. But that was only the Pilot Episode silly. Series creator Jake Wilson ("You Must Be Joking," "The Battery's Down") was very ambitious with the project, but it simply is not possible to create another 4 episodes in the same shoestring fashion as the cast & crew made Episode 1.

The potential for what this show could be is off the charts, and if we're going to do this - we want to do it right. Which means, we must raise some funds.

If you haven't done so already, check out the Pilot here:

what is LOS FELIZ, 90027?

"Los Feliz, 90027" is a soapy dramedy that follows the over-the-top lives of the staff of Rockwell restaurant and bar: the waiters, waitresses and bartenders who are aspiring actors, musicians and... porn stars. (and yes, we have actual porn stars).

"90027" is an experimental format that could be described as live episodic entertainment. The story alternates between live theatrical performance (performed twice a month LIVE at the Los Angeles-based Rockwell Table & Stage) and pre-taped scenes on film that will be projected during the show.

For those not in Los Angeles, don't worry. We also film aspects of the live shows and combine it with the pre-taped footage for all to see in the digital episodes which air exclusively on Vimeo.

The series stars the incomparable Rumer Willis (The House Bunny, Sorority Row), adult film superstar Bridgette B., and a supporting cast with credits that include Orange Is The New Black, Homeland, Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, True BloodThe Big C, Friends, Pretty Little Liars, the new 90210, Will & Grace, All My Children and Bad Judge just to name a few.

who is this JAKE WILSON?

Jake is the creator/writer/director of "90027" and also responsible for the hit musical web series "The Battery's Down" which featured original musical numbers from Broadway's best including Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winners.

Since the series finale, Jake has continued to create viral videos through his production company The Battery Co., with over 9 million views to date. His work has been covered in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine and seen on "Tosh.0," CBS, E! and CNN.

The Battery Co.'s first full-length feature film "You Must Be Joking" made its World Premiere at the 40th Annual Seattle International Film Festival and will be released in early 2015 by Ketchup Entertainment.

why Kickstarter?

As amazing as Episode 1 turned out, it was extremely hard to pull everything together with practically no money as one could imagine.

Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform for creative projects that enables projects like "Los Feliz, 90027" to find the financial support they need from individual people. It allows YOU to be part of the team by pledging money towards the cause. In return, we have reward gifts for you based on various donation levels. Take a look at the right side of this page to see what we've got to offer. ===> 

Kickstarter operates with an all-or-nothing model, so this campaign must reach its stated goal of $45,000 or it can’t keep a penny of the money pledged. You'll only be charged your pledge amount once the campaign has ended and we've reached our entire funding goal.

Can we exceed this goal? We sure can. Haven't you seen those Zach Braff and Kristen Bell videos? Kickstarter will allow us to raise as much money as we can by the end of the campaign... so let's show them what we can do!

where does my money go?

Your contribution will allow us to make 4 more episodes of "90027" a reality, so that we have a complete Season 1. Here are a just a few of the things that your donation would cover: 

  • film crew
  • lighting
  • directing & producing fees
  • camera rentals
  • location rentals
  • the writer's room
  • choreography
  • live musicians
  • paying the actors
  • sound recording & mixing
  • editing & editing software
  • color correction
  • music composition
  • music production
  • music director
  • recording studio space
  • music rights & clearances
  • crew meals
  • external hard drives for data storage

you're still reading this? god bless you.

But seriously. Even considering giving to our cause deserves a big thank you. But I mean... clearly a monetary donation would be even BETTER! :)

this is how much we would appreciate a donation
this is how much we would appreciate a donation

No amount of money is too little; we'd be so grateful to receive any donation you feel comfortable giving. But to put it bluntly - without these additional funds, there will be no more episodes of "90027."

But money isn't the only way that you can help us. PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD about our Kickstarter campaign by telling your family and friends about the series, and sharing the URL on your social media pages.

THANK YOU, thank you, THANK YOU and see you in 2015!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk/challenge associated with this project is the fact that we have an enormous cast. We have 14 series regulars (which is AMAZING and what truly makes the show so unique and one-of-a-kind), however juggling this many working actors schedules can be very tricky.

That is why we need to raise this money ASAP in order to ensure the back four episodes of Season 1 can contain the entire original Pilot cast.

Additionally, our director Jake is working on multiple other projects at the same time, so as soon as we can secure the funding for the remainder of Season 1 we will be able to solidify a production schedule and get back to making the "90027" magic!
