Fallen Sports Heroes Train For Their Biggest Game.... LIFE

WELCOME TO ReSet:

Combine the psychological drama and intensity of Celebrity Rehab; the personalities and draw of the NFL, NBA, MLB and other professional sports; the lifestyle mentoring of Dr. Oz; the fast-paced interwoven storytelling of Celebrity Apprentice or Survivor, and a redemptive internal-style version of Extreme Makeover … and you begin to understand the potential of the new reality series ReSet, created by Michael D. Thompson.

MICHAEL D. THOMPSON- ReSet CREATOR

Top-rated reality TV series all share one compelling dynamic: personality-driven drama and story-lines that viewers either identify with or are fascinated by to the point where they just can’t turn away. These are stories filled with real-life challenges, outrageous behavior, spontaneous insights, and hard-won lessons that grab a viewer’s senses, stir their hearts and compel them to stick around throughout the series to find out what happens next!

NBA HALL OF FAMER, "THE HUMAN HIGHLIGHT REEL" - DOMINIQUE WILKINS,

ReSet features every element of this irresistible dynamic plus the true-to-life drama of household names – sports stars and more who were once idolized by millions of fans - whose careers and personal lives through unexpected events and downturns have crashed and burned and now desperately need to be … ReSet.

WE still care...

We care about these heroes because we created them, as fans and as followers. We built them up. We were emotionally invested in them. And we are going to see and hear from the mom, the dad, the brother, the wife, the children – the families and loved ones who stick by them and remain emotionally invested in them, and who remind us … they’re human, just like us. 

The ULTIMATE GOAL of ReSet:

The ultimate goal of ReSet is to accomplish exactly what the name says in the lives of our “subjects”.  A real opportunity to start over! Our fallen heroes will finally have solid solutions and a place/system where they will NOT be judged, disrespected, looked down upon, or rejected!  Our total focus on ReSet is REDEMPTION!

ReSet is a “Central Hub” for a fresh start and a new world of opportunities!  Our system is uniquely designed by a team of certified professionals to administer the counseling, training, rehabilitation, and life coaching necessary to accomplish our goals.  We also have a powerful element to our system that includes “Peer Mentors”.  These mentors have walked the walk.  They have played the game at the highest levels and succeeded in and out of the spotlight.  This dynamic gives our “subjects” a direct line of contact with someone whom they have looked up to and can easily relate with.  This is an undeniable connection because the mentors have had to overcome some of the same obstacles. 

The role of the MENTOR on ReSet:

· One on one mentor sessions

· Inspire and drive players harder

· Emotional support for the process

· Reward for successful phase achievements

On this journey to get Reset sold I've gotten the opportunity to meet some of my heroes…all of which have said that ReSet is a great idea... It's LONG OVERDUE!!

Each episode features the ongoing stories of former sports stars in various phases of the Reset process struggling to remake their lives after a devastating downturn – a career-ending injury, the loss of a loved one, a natural disaster, financial ruin, or addiction. Events we can all sympathize with. Their paths explode with drama, conflict, and triumph!! You will follow:

· Where they started.

· How they’re doing now.

· Did they stick with the program?

· Did they plunge back into drugs or despair?

· Did they get their finances on track, or are they on the streets?

· Did they overcome their grief for their mom’s death?

· Did he reunite with a daughter, or does she still struggle to reconnect?

· Did they make up with former teammates? 

OR are they still an unwanted on the court or playing field? The final episodes will reveal ALL in a stark, unblinking look at who made it, and who didn't, but with Michael’s compassionate promise to never give up on any one!

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP ReSet GET OUT TO THE WORLD THROUGH THIS KICKSTARTER PLATFORM!!

We're on a MISSION to changes LIVES and we must make enough noise for the WORLD to hear us... Lend us your voice and JOIN THE ReSet MOVEMENT....

OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL:  To raise $25,000. in 30 DAYS...(TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS!!)

WHAT YOUR DONATIONS GO TOWARDS:  We're depending on you to help us pay back our crew, equipment providers, travel, and pre-production expenses. Also, we will have  post-production expenses such as editing, sound mix, graphics package, and color correction. These are highly specialized services, the labor and equipment fees really add up! The eventual sale of the show by a broadcast/cable network will cover a big portion of our production costs but not all of it.... This is why we've opted to start this kickstarter fundraising campaign.

REMEMBER:   Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING fundraising platform. There is NO LIMIT to the amount our project can receive, but if the "GOAL AMOUNT" of $25,000. is NOT met, our project receives ZEEERO....NOTHING....NADA!! 

SOME GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Watch the above video
  • Take a look at the pledge levels (on the right) and choose the one that best matches your desire to contribute.
  • Follow the steps through AMAZON to process your pledge. (Your Credit Card will NOT be charged until the campaign ends and NOT AT ALL if ReSet DOES NOT meet its $25,000. goal). 

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

You're a straight shooter. We respect that, so since you asked, there are a few things:

  • Awesome incentives and unique opportunities! Look at that list to the right, pretty neat huh?! We want you to take something away from this besides the warm feeling you'll get from helping our dream come true...
  • You're also going to get new, original, and exclusive ReSet video content regardless of donation level. We don't want to just have an update of how close we are to our goal and how we need more donors. We'll do some of that, but we want you to have a reason to be interested... We want you to know that we sincerely appreciate any consideration you feel lead to support us with!
  • Your participation is critical to our overall success!! WE LOVE FEEDBACK!! Please take a close look at the incentives to the right of the screen... GET AN "I BELIEVE IN ReSet" T-SHIRT (starting at the $50 donation level) We want you involved in the growth of the ReSet movement!!
  • You have our most heartfelt thanks! Obviously this project means a  lot to us, and making this has been a culmination of nearly 3-years of relentless perseverance, unshakable faith, and an undying pursuit to help change lives for the better! Everything has been building toward creating a reality series that educates, stimulates, entertains, and most importantly, ReSets the lives of the people we touch both on and off camera all across the world!! We're not foolish enough to think we can pull this enormous task off on our own.... Whatever you can give, every little bit means a whole lot to us!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We all know that there are risks and challenges involved in developing and distributing content in the rough world of Television!

- Will the Network Executives buy-in to the concept and get behind it?
- Will the audience (YOU) support the show, spread the word, and come back for more?

But even before the show is made, every production has its share of unforeseen circumstances such as:

- Expensive production equipment such as lights, cameras can break or malfunction.
- Production delays due to on screen talent personal issues, weather, contract disputes...etc.
-The show doesn't get picked up by a network.

With your help, getting FULLY FUNDED ($25,000.) on this KickStarter fundraising platform, we will have the resources to hire the professionals who are just as serious, determined, and disciplined as we are to fulfill this FINAL STAGE OF PACKAGING ReSet FOR MARKET!!

It's our hope to create this NEW REALITY SERIES that could very well change the WORLD.... or in a less dramatic sense, at least make you smile with pride, turn to a friend and be able to say,

"I HELPED MAKE ReSet HAPPEN!!"
