SYNOPSIS


After fame has come and gone, there is the long road back to the middle. Once upon a time, Gloria Gorgodian (Satu Runa) was “Queen Gorya,” an infamous late night horror hostess on basic cable.   Today, she slaves away in a dive bar whilst making the occasional convention appearance with her former co-host, Terry (Steve J.Palmer), an eccentric wannabe werewolf.  Gloria is perfectly willing to sink further into bitterness and self-destruction, but the world isn’t quite done with her yet. 

An ambitious, peculiar young film student, Jane Riley (Haley Hudson), sets out to make a documentary about Gloria and drag her back into the public eye.  After being robbed and terrorized by her ex-boyfriend, Tony, Gloria is forced to reconnect with her prickly Armenian father, Dajad.  Covertly spying on Gloria’s life is a dangerous cult of nerds who believe that she is the fabled “Moonchild,” an ethereal occult messiah as foretold by Aleister Crowley.

QUEEN GORYA'S PLACE IN TELEVISION
Queen Gorya arrives at a time some call "The Golden Age of Television."  We aim to carry that torch long after Dexter, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, and Orange is the New Black are gone.  Merging the offbeat comedy of cult films like Shaun of the Dead with an iconic spooky profession, Queen Gorya "Temptress of Terror" is here to stay. Funds for this campaign will be used entirely for the production and marketing budget of the pilot episode.  After hitting the pavement at several horror and comic conventions gathering a steady following, it's time to give back to the fans and deliver the beginning of a long journey into the abyss of a TV horror comedy spotlight.

THE BUDGET
13k is the bare minimum budget in order to complete the pilot episode and give the donor rewards back to our fans.  Everyone will be working for a lowered rate in order to realize this dream.  If we go over our goal, costumes will be better, rates will be up to what our cast and crew deserve, and we can hire a bigger crew to make this project look and feel as good as any other program on AMC, Showtime, or Netflix.

YOU ARE THE REASON WE CAN SUCCEED! While creating a unique TV franchise is challenging, nothing is harder than getting it off the ground. We have a committed cast, crew, and a team full of vision and determination. Finding a great home for Queen Gorya may be the biggest challenge, but as long as we create something we can't get enough of, it will be worth it.
