About this project

Pike and Bird is a new comedy tv show, created and written by Andrew Weaver and Katie Garland-Noble. The pilot episode will be Directed by Bradley Wilder. The show illuminates the joys and horrors of working at a fast food restaurant in LA called Classic Burger.

Pike (played by actor Gareth Koorzen) is a witty employee whose scathing commentary is his only defense against being a Classic Burger cashier.

Bird (played by actress Natalie Palamides) is a tidy, hard-working unsung hero who needs the job to support her mother and young niece.

All the while, Classic Burger's hypochondriac manager Mr. B. (played by actor Frank Von Zerneck) won't let Bird take a ten minute break. Mr. B. also struggles to stay professional in a stressful work environment.

And Mr. Hide (played by musician Hisao Shinagawa), a weathered Japanese immigrant, fights to organize the fast food workers of Los Angeles, and survive the raging ramblings of Mr. B.

We have already raised a substantial amount of money for this project. However, we just need a little bit more money to pay for some additional camera operators, to buy props, and to feed our beautiful cast and crew (craft services. :)

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge will be filming the entire pilot tv script in a condensed 3 day period on a very limited budget. However, we have an incredibly skilled and talented Director named Bradley Wilder with extensive on-set experience, and we have a very dedicated cast and crew. We have all been working hard on this project for many months, and we have the utmost faith and confidence that we will complete it, no matter the challenges.
