Follow Aaron, Mike Bay's new personal assistant, and the trials, tribulations and explosions his famous boss can cause.

In Development:

In Development follows Aaron, Mike Bay's new personal assistant, on his first week in the behind-the-scenes world of making movies at Mike Bay Productions.

In our three episode arc, Aaron hits the ground running trying to acclimate with his group of eccentric interns, hunting down their famous, but missing, boss while working through the backlash of rebooting a beloved classic. 

Entourage showed us what it was like to be a movie star. 

Extras showed us the hurry-up-and-wait of the background artists life. 

In Development will show you the little people who kiss the ass of The A-List filmmakers you know and love.

What We Bring To The Table:

As writers living in Hollywood, we have access to some of the best talent the world has to offer. This project will be good, simply because it has to be.

Everyone working on In Development is following their dreams; we aren't hacks screaming at kids on horrible Disney shows or writing a starring vehicle for Snooki.

We are out to make it in this town. To do the impossible. To finally rid the world of Kardashians... wait.

We are out to make the best, funniest and most memorable web series to date.

What We Need From You:

Asking for money sucks. Sadly, it's what we lack. The creative stuff is easy, it's the funding, as two writers struggling in Hollywood, that's hard.

So we need your help. And your money. Preferably both.

While most of the cast and crew will be donating their considerable talent and time, there are costs that we have to cover to make In Development the absolute best it can be.

  • Professional Camera
  • Professional Sound
  • Professional Lighting
  • Location Fees
  • Set Design
  • An Editor
  • Robots in Disguise

We've gone over our budget line by line to ensure that every penny that is donated will be seen on the screen.

We have ten years of writing experience and five years of working on small to large productions; we know how to make every little bit count.

We're asking for $5,000.00 and we can absolutely put out a fantastic product for that. But if the stars align and we do get more, please note that we aren't gonna go on a month long bender in Mexico. We will put every cent into making In Development even that much bigger and better!

What You Can Expect From Us:

Gratitude & Entertainment: You're a true patron of the arts and without you, In Development would still actually be in development and not getting ready to show the world what we're made of (two parts funny, one part bone, one part gooey stuff.)

We know that donating money sight unseen to a project is a scary thing, that you are taking a giant leap of faith. In turn that makes us work harder to ensure you have a product that you can be as proud of as we will be.

We've set up some cool prizes for the pledge tiers from: thank you shout-outs, digital downloads of In Development, In Development T-Shirts to actually having an IMDb credit on the project!

Thank you for your time and your support!
