Four struggling couples need help. They get each other instead.
Group Therapy without the Therapist.
A relationship comedy in the style of "Modern Family" and "The Office".

Check out all 8 episodes of our first complete season at:
www.thenwegothelp.com

We had an award winning and critically acclaimed Season 1. Yay!
Our cast of B'way vets & TV/Film actors have signed on for Season 2. Yay!
We're ready to begin shooting in October. Yay!
But we don't have our funding yet. BOOOOOOO!

That's where you come in. We need to raise at minimum $5000 to begin Season 2. But truth be told, $8000 would get us through post production and give us the ability to upgrade our sound.

What's it for?
Equipment, Sound upgrade, Food (never underestimate the food), Wardrobe, Props, and Post Production
Our cast and filmmaker work for the love of the game.

Our cast you ask?
Creator/Director/Actress Julie Ann Emery ("Hitch", "Dexter", "ER")
Nicholas Rodriguez ("Sex and the City 2", "One Life to Live")
Kristen Shaw ("Commander-in-Chief", "Straw Dogs", "The Last Castle")
Sean Mahon ("Mr. & Mrs. Smith", "Fair Game", Bway's 39 STEPS)
Alan Campbell (B'way Tony Nominee-SUNSET BLVD, B'way's CONTACT)
Blake Hammond (B'way's ELF & BILLY ELLIOTT)
Jessica Rush (B'way's JERSEY BOYS & GYPSY)
Kevin Earley (B'way's LES MIS & TALE OF TWO CITIES)
Susan Ferrara (PEASANT, "The Onion-Online")
