About this project
My Gal, the Zombie: Tragedy Travesty is the horror host tv series which incorporates monster movies, music videos, comicbooks, reviews, and interviews!
Watch it on youtube at www.MgtzTv.com and at www.facebook.com/mygalthezombie !
Our series maintains a retro/all ages standard of entertainment and is fun for the whole zombie family!
(keeping in mind the minor frightening nature of old monster movies)
Here's our second campaign video with more details about our rewards and such!
Season one features 14 episodes (with an average of 90 minutes each) and includes such greats as Bela Lugosi, Jack Nicholson, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Sandra Knight, Judith O'Dea, Russ Streiner, P.J. Soles, The Undead, Koffin Kats, Forever Dead, Grave Robber, Blaster the Rocket Man, and more!
Our episodes include "pop-up" jokes and riffs by our hostess, appearing on your screen during the films!
We are beginning to work on season 2, which promises to have more celebrity interviews, more crazy reviews, more far out films, and more of what the media describes as:
"Our favorite Undead Horror Host"
-John Ary, Beta Max TV
-Basil Gogos, Famous Monsters of Filmland
-Heather Omen, The Horror Nation
"Coolest Horror Hostess in the West"
-Joe Bob Briggs, MonsterVision
“[My Gal, the Zombie has] become quite popular in horror host land in a short time. It's obviously a quality show.” - Kreepy Kastle Radio
"Few projects show as much passion as My Gal, the Zombie" - Jeff Provine, Seattle Pi
After doing the MGTZ Holiday Special (our November 2014 pilot), we were given the opportunity to do a TV series in early 2015, which began airing that spring.
Many people have helped us, yet we wanted to complete our first season before seeking this sort of funds for the future of our show. This was both to show that we can sustain an on going series and to create the content to provide to backers.
Having completed these 14 (average 90 min.) episodes, we can only continue the series with YOUR financial support! It's been a ton of fun, yet we are at a point that without your backing, we would need to focus on other pursuits. And that's why doing this Kickstarter with YOU allows us to continue with this dream project!

Risks and challenges
Season 1 is complete, so there are no challenges in finishing it.
As we completed season 1 without a backing of this sort, and having learned many things, there should be problem in completing season 2.
I (Dan, producer) have already completed two successful Kickstarter campaigns, including one for the first My Gal, the Zombie graphic novel and soundtrack.
The only challenge I can think of is if we have a very large amount of physical DVD orders, in which case we would make the jump from issuing "on demand" DVDs to having them manufactured. Clearly this would be a different model, yet only if it is warranted by orders, so it would be the opposite of a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
