An animated comedy web series, starring Jonathan Katz, about a man on death row and Weight Watchers.
Jonathan Katz is best known for playing the title character on TV's Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, a role for which he won an Emmy.
Now it's being expanded into an animated series about the main character's life in prison. (Try to think of it as being like The Shawshank Redemption, only with more laughs and less crawling through sewer pipes.)
The production had a funding source. A lot of funny scripts have been written. But as of a few weeks ago, a change in plans from the funding source caused the production of Death Row Diet to be put on hold indefinitely.
We want to make you laugh, so we're gonna do it anyway!
What We Need & What You Get
Perks include digital downloads of the episodes, DVDs signed by Jonathan Katz, associate producer credits, and a lot more! Get your name on IMDB like all the other big-time showbiz sleazebags! The director and a voice actor will even come to your house to clean your bathroom, and will probably say funny things while they are there!
The number of cartoons we make will depend on the amount we are able to raise! If we exceed our goal, we can make more episodes!
Okay, Once the Money's Raised, Then What?
Your contributions will make a big difference! Every penny counts and helps make this series possible.
- We will make the cartoon series available on the web, including at the web site www.DeathRowDiet.com. (But not for download. Cartoon downloads is one of the rewards of contributing!)
- We will try to get Death Row Diet season 1 into film festivals, or on streaming sites like Hulu and Netflix.
- We also want to generate interest from larger production entities to make longer episodes for television!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest risk we have in this project would be to not get the adequate funding to create the series.
The only challenge is in raising the funds. A lot of good people are donating their time and talents to make this project happen, but certain expenses simply cannot be avoided.
We are hoping that the funding goal will be exceeded, so we can make more episodes. We have a lot of great scripts, and the well won't run dry!
