CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX is about the complexities we face in our past and present relationships. Set in New York City, CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX focuses on three ex-couples (one gay, one straight and one lesbian) and their varying levels of modern interconnectedness. From owning a business together to trying to avoid each other, the ex-couples must deal with the array of choices each has made to participate in (or avoid) those interactions.
FIFTY2&NINE, founded in 2012 by Adam Fitzgerald and Blake Drummond, is a film, television, web and commercial production company that strives to make high quality on-camera content with an eye toward social consciousness. FIFTY2&NINE’s first project, a PSA for the “Think B4 You Speak” campaign, won a national Talent House competition judged by The Ad Council and Brett Ratner. Fitzgerald and Drummond were honored for their work at the GLSEN Respect Awards ceremony in Los Angeles alongside Simon Halls & Matt Bomer, Marilyn & Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Bob & Harvey Weinstein.

Risks and challenges
Hey it's Blake and Adam!!!
Thank you so much for visiting our Kickstarter page - we are so passionate about this series and hope you will be too!!
GWIST is going to feature our series starting April 1, 2013 - it is a HUGE moment for us, and we are overjoyed - but also, a little scared...
We are creating this webseries on a shoestring budget - we want to produce quality that doesn't break the bank. With your help, we can finish the first season, and continue on to future seasons. We started Fifty2&Nine just one year ago, and we get a little giddy at how far we've already come. If you can help make Season 1 a reality . . . you have no idea how grateful we will be. And we promise to use your money wisely.
We know times are tough. We are doing whatever it takes to make this happen because we believe in this project. Whatever you can do, however you can help, we need you!
Love and light,
Blake and AdamLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
