About this project
THE MARRIAGE MOVEMENT - Peyton and Lony’e Perrine have been married for almost 13 years. As you can imagine, they love each other and believe in marriage. With all of the craziness going on today and with the divorce rate as high as it is, they decided to create a show that tackles marital topics and issues through humor. The point is not just to make you laugh, but for you to relate to this JOURNEY OF LOVE and see yourself in each character. The goal is for you to get a gem of knowledge and start a conversation from watching each episode. Regardless if you are looking for a spouse or have been married for years we can all LEARN from each other.
Funny Married Stuff (FMS) is a comedic web series about funny situations that happen in marriage. The episodes are short, they address common issues in a relationship, and are guaranteed to make you laugh.
The series was created to inspire those looking to get married and to remind married couples that although marriage is hard, it’s worth figuring out together. At the end of the day it’s all about living, learning, and laughing with the one you love.
Season 1 Success (as of March 2017):
- 26,000 + views on YouTube (released Nov 2016).
- Accepted into the *Hollywood Black Film Festival.
- Nominated for best sound track for the Indie Series Awards.
- Partnered with Black And Married With Kids to share articles to inspire married couples.
*Pending other film festival acceptances for 2017.
BY POPULAR DEMAND our audience has requested more episodes! They want to see more of our characters and their stories! We want to explore topics surrounding parenting, today’s dating scene, interracial marriages, marriage as a senior, and other funny married stuff with you.
So many of you connected with the situations and challenges that the cast experienced in season 1. We loved reading your comments on how certain topics resonated with you!
Your partnership with season 2 gives us the chance to further demonstrate our talents as creators/actors and will give you what you have been asking for...MORE EPISODES!
Together we can keep the conversation going and continue our movement to strengthen marriages and relationships.
We are so glad you asked! With your partnership we can produce 10 episodes, each 5 minutes in length, for our second season. Lony'e and Peyton discovered creative ways to make season 1 happen, and together, with YOU, season 2 can be bigger and better!
The success of FMS is largely due to the dedicated cast and crew who mostly worked for FREE or WAY LESS than their normal rates, simply because they believed in the show and our movement.
If you take the journey with us to BE AN ENDORSER (B.A.E) we can complete season 2 and together make the series better then ever.
The ultimate goal is to get the show picked up for distribution on network TV.

Risks and challenges
During the filming of season 1 of Funny Married Stuff we developed our team, learned a lot, pushed through the obstacles, and created a good template for shooting our series. We know that various things can go wrong in shooting a longer second season, but our team has both the heart and experience to overcome any obstacles that may arise. We will ultimately make a second season that you'll feel proud to be a part of! We do not take your generosity lightly and are fully dedicated to delivering rewards on time and creating a high-quality season together.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
