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

"The Anti-Elvira"
-Groovey.TV

"Beautiful"
-Basil Gogos, Famous Monsters of Filmland

"Instant Classic"
-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.

    Seriously, if you'll give us $5000, we'll use the extent of our resources to make your film.

    That's everything available from Dan, Patricia, & Justine, so that you receive a 1080p finished film.

    You must provide anything outside of our talents, including other actors, sets, props, music, and the script.*

    Must be within reasonable driving distance of Denver, CO or provide suitable accommodations for us elsewhere. Estimated delivery will be based on your collaboration. Not to exceed a "pg equivalent" rating.*

    Backer retains rights to the film, except that we may sell copies and feature it in an episode, if we so choose.

    Also, you'll get the digital download of the complete Season 1!
    Your name in the credits of an episode.
    Plus, we'll message you a download link for a full episode before the campaign is through!

    *If these elements are not provided by the backer, or not provided by the backer within a reasonable amount of time to complete it by Dec 2017, the film may not (likely will not) be completed, at the fault of the backer, therefore no amount of the pledge will be refunded, at complete responsibility of the backer.
    If the projected film is not of a "pg equivalent" rating, we may edit it as we see fit. Remember, most retro horror films, such as those we host, would easily be within that threshold. Either way, we'll do our best on the movie and hope you'll love it (although we realize we cannot guarantee that)!
    We may incorporate any other creative persons in this film production, as needed.
