Q. Why are you crowdfunding for a TV Series?
A. There are three main reasons the 1st being we want people to have the opportunity to be involved and experience what most people do not have the opportunity to do. Second we need additional advertising monies which is one of the most important aspects to help promote the show. Without the viewers we have no show. This marketing campaign allows everyone to be involved and for us to run additional ads and promotions. Third and most importantly we having 90% of our funding and have turned to crowdfunding to raise the final $50,000.00 needed.

Short Synopsis: The Sparrows
After a crushing personal loss, a family must find healing and a new life back home in Arizona. Relying on his faith and the memory of his wife, Juliana, Mike Sparrow (played by CHRISTOPHER ATKINS) strives to mend his relationship with his estranged father, Gus, and make a future for his two daughters, Emily and Anjela.
Filled with adventure, personal growth and the promise of better days, Mike and his girls work past the heartache through the relationships they encounter and the love they share as a family.
We are breaking the traditional mode of Hollywood and creating the first FOX Affiliate TV series where "fans" are part of the journey! Did you ever imagine you could be featured on a major network series airing in over 60 million households? We're making this dream possible for everyone this fall, courtesy of Nandar Entertainment. GENRE: An hour-long family-friendly dramatic television series with inspirational overtones.
The Sparrows is a family drama set in modern-day 2014. The heart of this series is, "The Walton's meets Little House on the Prairie," for it brings to light a message of hope and discovery.
"THE SPARROWS" concept was brought to life by the overwhelming response and success of our latest film, A HORSE FOR SUMMER. We pitched the trailer and our ideas to a company that has a FOX affiliate output deal, and they loved it! Their reaction matched our motivation when they stated, a series like this is very needed and different from what is out there today. Our society is lacking family values and The Sparrows offers a platform to share them in a relevant and meaningful way.
From there we received a order for 12 episodes to launch in August for the TV sweeps.
And, if that isn't exciting enough, we are extending an incredible opportunity to you, our fans! Be a part of this amazing and wholesome production, experience the process, visit us on set, give input to our guest star list, help us bring a positive message to people of all ages. Join us, in this way, to create a better world.
The response from TV stars who have expressed interest in being on the show is overwhelming.
