About this project

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Divine Marigolds is a Television Show that is a heartfelt, comedy about a tight knit Irish American family set in the gorgeous Alki Beach area of Seattle, Washington. We are seeking funding to produce our Pilot episode and continue the marketing and production of our show.

In the Pilot episode entitled, "Finnegan's Wake" we follow members of the Marigold Family as they deal with a daughter's return home after a prolonged absence, growing marital woes, sibling rivalry, annoying neighbors and an untimely death in the family.

They own a family business, The Alki Bike and Board Shop that’s a local legend, and the show centers around all the drama and hilarity that ensues as this big, loving family live out their lives as sons, daughters, husbands, wives, spouses and siblings.

The main theme of The Divine Marigolds is that this family sticks together no matter what. And to that end, we see how a family that spans continents and generations deals with everything life throws at them.

The Divine Marigolds is in Pre-Production right now and we’ve been writing our Pilot, securing Locations and talking to Corporate Sponsors about involvement on our Show. We held several rounds of auditions and found an amazing Cast of talented Actors and have had a couple photo shoots, a full read-through of the Script and much more.

Our goal is to generate funds to shoot our Pilot Episode. This is very ambitious, but we believe that people will see the value in a positive TV Show about Family and help us make The Divine Marigolds a reality.

We’re gearing up to do a couple Webisodes to invigorate the already high interest in the show which will be available exclusively through our Kickstarter page and to our contributors.

We are a group of independent producers and filmmakers that have come together to produce this high quality, engaging and commercially viable project which we intend to pitch this show and script to Network TV and other media outlets.

We're going to be producing LOTS of web content for this project and sending out updates, so you'll be able to see from start to finish how we create content, promote our show and see your funding dollars in action!

Please help The Divine Marigolds meet its funding goals and support our dream of making a family friendly, slightly quirky, and highly entertaining television show.

REMEMBER: If we don't reach our target of $10,000 - we don't get a penny and of course you don't get charged, so every single donation helps, as does sharing this Link…we thank you in advance for your time and for checking us out. Slainte! (Cheers!)

Jeremiah Daniel Kaynor- Producer, The Divine Marigolds.

Jeremiah Daniel Kaynor is a new creative producer that looks to make films that moves the human soul and intrigues the mind. Starting out in the film world he was in front of the camera for his snowboarding and skateboarding. Much of his time was taken up working closely with the cinematographers to build action shots as well as artistic shots. He learned his way around exterior sets as well as the camera from the 9 years of filming his sports. He then started working with Atmosphere Casting for a short while as a Casting Director and that is what led him into the movie industry. Finely in 2006 he moved full on into the producing business by taking on the film Timetravel_0. He worked hand in hand with the director to get Timetravel_0 to its world wide recognition that it holds today. Over seeing much of the P.R. and marketing work in the beginning of Timetravel_0’s production, he was able to elevate the movie to a “successful underground phenomena” before it was even edited and released. Now in 2010 he is working alongside with Corwood Productions to put out the next big indie feature film The Orpheum. At the same time he has teamed up with some of Seattle’s best producers and writers to work on producing the two Network TV shows Push Life and The Divine Marigolds as well.
