About this project
We need your help to expand the content beyond one episode!
The $20,000 was the bare minimum needed to make this one episode a reality, but to really make this content the best it can be, we need to be able to make more of it!!! We are truly honored to reach the funding goal this fast... But we need more funding!
By donating today, you will not only help us make sure we have the resources for the best version of The Weeklings, but also allow us to MAKE MORE CARTOONS!!
The Weeklings is an animated comedy series starring the Days of the Week! Set in a surreal world in which anything can happen, the series chronicles the everyday adventures of Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each character has the personality of how each day feels.
The Diverse World
The series takes place in a world that mirrors ours. Characters live in houses and apartments, binge watch TV shows and hate their commutes to work. The characters that inhabit this world are not human but act like them. Outside the main cast, the show is filled with characters that are all inspired by different types of days. Characters like the creepy Halloween, the elusive Leap Day and goofy April Fool’s Day that embody the spirit of each day, will live in the world.
We want to use Holidays to help combat the lack of Diverse Representation in media today. Every group has dope holidays that we can feature as characters in the show! By making well rounded, diverse characters (and casting accordingly) we hope to introduce audiences to new types of people!
The Weeklings is a positive feel-good show for the whole family.
The show will feature a variety of types of comedy, from silly slapstick and physical comedy, to witty dialogue, all tied together in a clever story. Despite the exaggerated nature of the show, the heart of the series are the characters.
The Weeklings will be produced in Hollywood, CA by Flydra Creative

Risks and challenges
Animation is hard work and The Weeklings is the first animated series we are producing! As we progress through production we will learn and grow as a team. Despite the set backs we may face we are confident that we can make it happen!
The Weeklings is such a diverse show it's going to be tricky to handle all the different types of cultures we plan to portray. We have spent months researching holidays and celebrations from all over the world. While developing the stories and putting our own spin on the characters, we want to make sure we stay true to the holidays and who they represent!
We look forward to opening a dialogue and getting feedback from our friends, family and of course our Kickstarter Commuinty!
