About

Welcome to the Cops and Monsters: Uprising "Bad Moon Rising" Kickstarter Campaign! 

This campaign has been created so we can raise at least £5000 to allow us to shoot the brand new episode of Cops and Monsters: Uprising!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our campaign and we hope you enjoy what you see and will consider backing our indie webseries.

Episode 2 is written by BAFTA winning writer Laura Anne Anderson.

We hope we can not only raise the £5000 to shoot episode 2, but also get as close as possible to £25,000 so we can shoot all remaining 5 x 20 minute episodes.

* FOR PLEDGES OVER £30 YOU'LL RECEIVE ALL AVAILABLE EPISODES ON DVD! *

Episode 1, "Remembrance", by Debbie Moon, has been funded and shot. You can watch it below:

We were able to film 3 of the 28 planned scenes for "Bad Moon Rising", whilst filming episode 1. Here is a preview from the new episode:

For the duration of the campaign you can watch all 8 episodes of series 1:

"Cops and Monsters" is an on-going, award winning supernatural police thriller set in a near-future Scotland. When vampires, werewolves and zombies come out of hiding, the country breaks out into war and riots with both sides fighting for control. Eventually the First Minister and the heads of the vampire and werewolf societies meet and form a treaty that will allow humans and supernaturals to co-exist. As such a police team, the Paranormal Investigation Team Scotland, are put into place to police and protect both sides.

Series 2 sees Maya Hedges infiltrating the S.P.I.D.E.R.S, a militant police force now in charge of the supernatural community, and working with known werewolf assassin Alexis Smith, they will try to bring down Jonathan Clark, the Minister of Justice who is plotting to exterminate all supernatural life.

"A Monster roams a supernatural zone, mutilating and eating anyone it finds. Alexis is tormented by a vision of The Cult of Many Faces, and worries that her confinement is driving her to madness. Maya battles hostile SPIDERS colleagues and a bigoted new directive from sleazy Minister Clark in her mission to uphold the law. When an old acquaintance ambushes Maya outside SPIDERS HQ, desperately seeking her help, things go from bad to worse.

Werewolf therapist Jenny Connor is badly shaken – she was part of a programme aimed at helping supernaturals, and something has gone terribly wrong. A Monster has been unleashed – THE Monster.

Distrusting SPIDERS and with nobody else to turn to, Jenny enlists Maya and Alexis to help her find the Monster and put an end to the violence. The group travel to Zone 3, the Werewolf ghetto, to investigate.

Between the full moon, Maya’s split loyalties, The Cult’s hounding of Alexis, and a dark secret kept by Jenny, it’ll be a wonder if they make it out of Zone 3 alive."

Our series 2 regulars are returning - Ellen Patterson, Innes Anderson, Billy Kirkwood, Chris Bain and River City star Stephen Purdon. 

Billy Kirkwood and Innes Anderson return as The Cult of Many Faces and Alexis Smith

We'll also be joined by River City star Louise McMenemy, who will make her debut as werewolf activist Ava McIntyre, who has plans for Alexis.

We also hope that "Nina and the Neurons" star Katrina Bryan, who has previously starred in Cops and Monsters series 1, shall be returning to play conflicted werewolf, Jenny. 

Scotland television is absent of anything like Cops and Monsters. The only sci-fi/supernatural show we have is Doctor Who, and that's made in Wales! We'd like to make our mark and join the ranks of Being Human, In the Flesh, The Fades, Primeval, Torchwood and beyond, and create an exciting, dangerous world of vampires, werewolves and zombies.

Having raised the funds to shoot 8 episodes for volume 1, our growing fanbase on Facebook and Twitter we know there is an appetite for a show like this, and so far we've had glowing reviews on Amazon Prime.

Not only does making a show like this allow you, the viewer, a chance to watch a brand new supernatural police thriller, but it allows us to make it for you. All of our actors, writers and crew who will be hired to work on the show will be a direct result of YOUR support.

We're also making it to prove that it can be done and that people will watch it. Hopefully catching the eye of producers, commissioners, and other important TV people out there, maybe leading to the show being re-booted with a proper television budget, or more work for the team who work so hard on the show.

We can't make this show without you, the fans, so if you can help us in anyway at all, it'll bring us closer to producing all of series 2.

With your help and support, we will be able to shoot for 2 days, completing our 2nd episode. All of our backers will get a link to it before it is streamed on Amazon.

Your money will be spent on the following:

  • Hiring actors to star in each episode 
  • Hiring professional TV and film crew members to work on the show 
  • Book locations for each episode 
  • When required, travel and accommodation for guest stars 
  • Film and camera equipment 
  • Regular and special effects makeup 
  • Costumes for each episode 
  • Props to be made and bought  
  • Expenses for travelling to locations  
  • Catering for each shoot date 
  • Editing of each episode 
  • Visual effects for each episode 
  • Sound design 
  • Music compositions for each episode 
  • Subtitles for each episode

We're offering a wide range of perks from Cops and Monsters in return for your support. These include:

  • A signed script from volume 2 
  • Volume 1 on DVD with special features Plus episodes 1 and 2 of our brand new series 
  • A3 posters which include our original design by Stuart Manning or our "The Cult and Alexis" poster.

Risks and challenges

If we don't raise our target then we won't be able to produce our next episode of Cops and Monsters.

This is our 2nd attempt to raise our goal and hopefully this time we will be successful.
