For three seasons, PRETTY followed the trials and tribulations of the Champagne family and they're desperate need to win "The Miss Star Eyes Pageant." The show was viewed by millions world-wide, critical acclaim was bestowed, awards were won, there was an EMMY panel discussion at the Television Academy, and the stars came out to get PRETTY: Genie Francis, Joan Van Ark, Melissa Peterman, Kirsten Vangsness, Martha Byrne, Melanie Hutsell, Jennifer Elise Cox and more. And then the sequin curtain closed.
Almost two full years later, I got this crazy idea for a new season, a re-imagining, if you will. I would only do it if Stacy McQueen ("Annette") was in so I pitched her the story and she said, "Hmmm. Write it and then let's see." I wrote it, rewrote it, rewrote it again, got some notes from Stacy, rewrote it again and then she said, "Let's do it."
This past April, a team mixed with some of our previous cast and crew and a brand new team of actors and one new producer, got together in Los Angeles to film six days in a row - all top secret. All said and done, we're PRETTY proud of what we've done and can't wait to show you the final product.
Reality is projects like ours only happen when the finances are there to make them happen. We've hit the financial wall and we still have so much more to do: Editing of episodes, color correcting, final audio mixing, Symphony video mixing for green screen, promotions & publicity. So we come to you, our loyal audience, and our new viewers, and we humbly ask you to join TEAM PRETTY. I've said it before, I'll say it again: If you'll pay $10 or more for a movie, a play, a concert, your internet, your cable, etc., etc. - what is a brand new season of PRETTY worth to you?
I believe in the power of unity. That said, $4 is all we ask. If every friend I have on Facebook gives $4 each, we'll exceed our goal. If every follower we have on Twitter give $4 each, we'll also exceed our goal. The point? TOGETHER WE ARE PRETTY. $4. That's all it takes.
MOST IMPORTANT: We THANK YOU - for watching, giving us feedback, spreading the PRETTY, supporting us in the past in every way, shape and form. This is a very special project to all of us. It wouldn't be anything without you just watching.
Steve & Everyone at PRETTY
Risks and challenges
FYI - We are so close to being done that I can't imagine any major problems arising, but anything can happen. Thankfully our team is made up of top-notch talent and professionally-speaking, they're the best. We WILL finish this new season and you can smile knowing you helped make that happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
