Porn Star Bree Olson quits the biz to go into comedy!  And we're creating a webseries about it!

When a porn star quits the business to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a comedic actor, she discovers it’s not as easy as she thought it’d be. 

Comedy is fun, but is also hard work.  Creator Kimberly McVicar has trained and performed at The Second City, UCB, and The Groundlings.  She has been in improv shows, sketch comedy shows, stand up comedy, and Funny Or Die videos.  Kim met Bree Olson during a weekly sketch comedy show called "TMI" at The Second City Hollywood, and Kim decided to bring Bree through the comedy journey.  More about Bree's and Kim's bios are on their profiles attached to this campaign.

We're raising funds to hire a professional cinematographer, gaffer, grips, sound mixer, actors, comedians, to pay for the camera equipment, lighting, sound gear, location fees, insurance, and all the costs involved in filmmaking!  The $38,000 is for the first season (six episodes).

Check out the first episode!

Some of the Characters:

Bree:

Bree had no plans on becoming a porn star when she moved to LA from Indiana at the age of 18.  She wanted to be a comedic actor. But when she read the script for “Swallow My Squirt 5”, and cracked up at the comedy, she knew it was too good to turn down.  Then, after the paychecks started rolling in – she couldn’t stop.  Plus she found out that sexy women could get whatever they wanted from guys. She’s quit the business, but she still makes money selling porn merchandise on adultmerch.com and is obsessed with posting half-naked selfies on Instagram.  She also posts pictures of her playing the piano. She has two cats, Dr Sniffles and Princess Netty-Puff, and they have active Twitter accounts.  She is very health conscious – she always works out, is a vegan, and doesn’t drink or do drugs.  Her hero is her grandmother, who was a concentration camp survivor. Bree’s ex-girlfriend Trisha is a barista at Starbucks, and their relationship ended so badly that Bree only dates men… for now.  Bree no longer goes to the Starbucks after she figured out she was being “decaffeinated” – which is when the employees make decaf drinks for the people they hate.

Kim:

Kim is a manager who will lie, cheat and steal in order to make money off of someone. She is basically a leech. She calls herself a “Hands on” manager – but “Hands on” really means “live in” manager. She is a leech who bleeds her clients dry then moves on to the next one. Her claim to fame is that she thinks she’s responsible for making Miley Cyrus quit “Hannah Montana” – after shouting at Miley from her car one day.  Kim has only slept with one person (when she was 20), but was cheated on by him and has sworn off sex and personal relationships ever since. She has an unflattering style (much the opposite of Bree, who dressed sexy and trendy).

Grace:

Shy and a little quirky; works in IT.  From a small town in FL; moved to LA because she was “a small fish in a small town, but now she can be a small fish in a big town.”  Grace is Bree’s biggest fan and purposely moved next to Bree (but Bree doesn’t know it).  Her obsession with Bree started when Bree said “Hey” to her on the street and made her feel like a somebody.  She would do anything for Bree. She has seen (and owns) all of Bree’s movies, and references them all the time. Dresses in anything she thinks Bree would maybe wear but does it all wrong.
