About the show:
(Un)employed is a comedy series about four underachieving twenty-somethings who strive for success with mixed results. The main cast features Mike Blodgett (First Hour Movies), who plays Tyrone; Eric Hurst (Your Brain on Tech), who plays Steve; Aaron Warner, who plays Berry; and Marla Carter, who plays Emily. The show will focus on the day-to-day lives of the four main characters as they try to gain some footing and find their individual places in the world. Joining them will be Alex Seder, a resident extra; Paul Walter Hauser (First Hour Movies, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community, What's Wrong with Virginia) actor and contributing writer; and Brian Gotts (Your Brain on Tech), producer and director extraordinaire.
Why we need your help:
This Kickstarter project is intended to help finance the production of the pilot episode of (Un)employed, a comedy series intended for television and web distribution. The script is polished, the characters are fleshed out, and the table read is done; all we need now are a few generous producers. In order to film our pilot episode, we need to raise enough money to purchase the necessary equipment (microphone, boom pole, audio recorder, tripod), as well as props and makeup, and secure extras and shooting locations. All money earned will go towards production of the pilot episode and the equipment will be used to continue producing the show.
