"They Live Among Us" is set in present day Los Angeles, far removed from the sun-washed landscape of blondes and Beverly Hills.

Raymond Chandler meets Stephen King. Fallen angels who struggle to find grace in a place known as the City of Angels.
This Kickstarter campaign is to fund the first three episodes of the series:
"Another Piece of My Heart" - Episode 1 begins with sad-sack of all sad-sacks, who, in one brief moment, falls in love with a beautiful girl, only to discover, to his horror, that love hurts.
"Fall from Grace" - Episode 2 examines the anguish of unrequited love, as an angel and a prostitute become inexorably intertwined.
"Let's Do Lunch" - Episode 3 is a cheeky look at the Hollywood machine, where cannibalistic power brokers literally feed on desperate Hollywood hopefuls.
