About

This is a 10 episode (22-30min) comedy that follows 4 friends - 2 gay males and 2 lesbians - as they try to survive life and grow into the people they were destined to be. These 4 friends are roommates and share almost everything with each other. They deal with issues such as relationships, work, and prejudice, and they do this head on, in a comedic fashion. 

Love it or hate it, but my inspiration in creating this show comes from The Golden Girls. ;)

What makes this show different?

  • It will follow 2 monogamous couples. It seems now a days gay stories always involve either open relationships or people who jump around a lot. This has proven to be great entertainment and many great shows have been built around this (I.e. Queer as folk, hunting season), but I want this show to be different and show that monogamous relationships can be just as fun and entertaining.
  • It will be written and starred with normal people. The actors are beautiful people, but no models here. Also, the plots and settings aren't based around big city living. Instead the setting will be a foreclosed house in the suburbs of St. Louis. It goes without saying that this will be a very down-to-earth show. 

I'll be honest, I am somewhat new to film-making, but this has always been a life-long dream of mine. It seems you have to live in New York or LA to produce great films. Help me prove the system wrong. 

Risks and challenges

One risk I'm facing is completing the project on budget. I want to create a high quality tv show, in regards to writing, acting and production. And all this isn't cheap. That's why I plan on spending 100% on production costs. I won't be spending any of the funding on extras such as meals or perks for my staff. Everything will go into creating the best show I can produce for you.

Another challenge I'm facing is an unpredictable shooting setting. The place we will be filming in is a foreclosed house. Any day the house can be repossessed by the bank and we would be out of a filming location. This situation would obviously post-pone production, but we would add that storyline into the show as we look for a new location and it shouldn't disrupt filming too much.

Another problem that might arise is with the actress who will play "chase" in the show. She is planning on leaving for the Air Force sometime this spring. That means I either have to be close to 100% finished by the time she leaves or recast her. As it stands now, we should have enough time to be finished with the project by the time she leaves, but if delays occur we will have to look at alternative plans.
