“Ian Owes U” is a brand-new comedic series!
- Imagine “My Name is Earl” with “Happy Endings.”
- Lazy and broke Ian uses social media to request rent money from friends and strangers in exchange for any single favor they ask.
We are raising the funds for the pilot episode.
Ian’s roommates (responsible cheese monger Ty and web columnist Jordan) become sick of Ian’s lack of rent money once he loses his latest job. After receiving an ultimatum, Ian binges on alcohol and bad decisions in one epic night, and requests money on a Venmo-like app from all his friends. When Jordan makes the story go viral, Ian wakes up to tons of moola and lots of favors owed. The group’s moral compass, Ty, and his life-coach fiancé Bebe convince Ian to actually pay the favors back . This starts Ian on a journey of hilarious self- discovery as he rigs casting calls, coaches competitive eaters, and helps new friend Courtney return a treasured family heirloom to an ex-boyfriend.
Here is how budget breaks down in the form of the most delicious kind of chart of them all... a pie chart! (Plus a little extra for those in case of emergency situations)
We have an amazing team artist lined up to help us with this project, and believe in at least attempting to compensate them for their time and energy. Why not pay people for what they are most passionate, and best at!
Risks and challenges
Getting to just this part of the process has taken the better part of year. A year we tell you! It as been a lesson is in creative and most importantly preserving. People get busy, NYC is expensive, and between every person that we want involved in this crazy adventure must work somewhere between 20 and 7,632 jobs. We believe in this the story that we are trying to tell and the group of artist we have put together, and nothing can stand in our way of getting this thing made once funded! And personally we would like to achieve one small thing before the entire world collapses around us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
