WHAT IS HOT FAIL?

Hot Fail is a half-hour comedy written by Tim Drucker and Tracy Weiler based on the tragic failings of Tracy's dating life. Ever gone on a bad date? Ever had that date show up with a gift bag full of vampire teeth? Or turn out to be a criminal? If so, you and Tracy have a lot in common.

WHAT IS THE SHOW ABOUT?

Charlie Kennedy has it all, great looks, a liberal arts degree and the unpaid job of her dreams. Life is perfect until she catches her boyfriend cheating on her and her best gay kicks her out of his apartment and into his crazy aunt's shag pad. Charlie slowly comes to the realization that her life may very well be, a hot fail.

WHY SUPPORT HOT FAIL?

We need your help to make our pilot! With a finished product we can get Hot Fail off the ground. And one day (with your support) you can watch Hot Fail at home and think, hey, I did that. 

Your donation will go towards the following...

  • Equipment
  • A crew to man said equipment.
  • Parrots (Yes, parrots)
  • Editing

....and much much more! (like maybe more parrots)

ABOUT THE CREATORS

TRACY WEILER

This is Tracy's first venture into writing for television. In the past she has written sketch comedy, stand-up sets and lots of emails. She is very excited to be joining Tim on this adventure!

As an actor, Tracy has appeared in over 10 commercials. Half of which were nationally televised. Those spots included Sofia Vergara, Eva Longoria, Chef Michael Symon, JB smoove and more. To see her in action click here.

Tracy has also appeared in several T.V. and Film roles. Most notably  Fugly, a comedy with John Leguizamo, set for release this summer. And The Gregory Brothers pilot for Comedy Central. You remember their work from the ever so popular "Double Rainbow" song.

Tracy received a BFA in Musical Theatre from Northern Kentucky University.

Risks and challenges

There is a point by point budget based off the shooting script. The production is fully staffed and ready to go. However, with any film shoot, there are inherent complications but with full funding there is very little that would prevent the shoot from happening.

If we do encounter trouble with permits or locations or scheduling issues, etc., we will face them head-on and still work towards wrapping no later than June.
