Melinda Hill and director, Adam Scott Franklin are gearing up to start production on the new episodes of Romantic Encounters with Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Working) Hannibal Buress (The Eric Andre Show, 30 Rock, SNL) and Blaine Capatch (Mind Of Mencia, Jamie Kennedy Experiment)

We need your support to rent the camera and lighting gear, hire great crew people, and secure locations! 

Our goal is to produce 8-12 new episodes of the series. We've already produced the first three starring TJ Miller, Kirk Fox, and Taylor Negron. They premiered as featured videos on the Funny Or Die homepage. Check them out!

How can you help? We would love to have you involved in our production in any way possible. By pledging an amount, you will be eligible to receive rewards, exclusive access to fun stuff and/or a credit on our show!
