Conversations with Coco: TV pilot starring Miss Coco Peru

Missed the campaign?

It's not too late to support Conversations with Coco! Please visit ThoughtMoment.com to learn more!

This for-profit media project is inspired by a show created at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Funds raised on Kickstarter will go toward producing the Conversations with Coco pilot and won't go to charity. The Center will receive a portion of all series profits after the show is produced.

Scheduled first guest: Lily Tomlin on August 13!*

As mentioned in the video above, Coco Peru is delighted to announce that her scheduled guest for the pilot episode is Lily Tomlin! Join us at the Los Angeles LGBT Center for the August 13 taping (date subject to change), as Lily reminisces on a legendary career of remarkable artistry, including:

  • Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In
  • Nashville
  • 9 to 5
  • All of Me
  • Flirting with Disaster
  • Tea with Mussolini
  • I ♥ Huckabees
  • The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe
  • Grandma
  • Grace and Frankie
*Date subject to change based on talent availability

How it all started

For ten years, Miss Coco Peru has conducted intimate interviews with some of the biggest names in entertainment. These live staged fundraising events benefit the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and guests have included:

  • Bea Arthur 
  • Liza Minelli
  • Allison Janney
  • Lainie Kazan
  • Jane Fonda
  • Charles Busch
  • Lesley Ann Warren
  • Karen Black

Audiences for each show have been limited to the 200 attendees lucky enough to squeeze into the sold-out theater, but we want to bring these remarkable conversations to a much larger audience, including you!

Portion of series proceeds benefits the show's birthplace!

This is a for-profit media project inspired by a show created at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. 

A portion of all proceeds from the series will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, birthplace and home of CONVERSATIONS WITH COCO. Their share of the profits will expand their mission of building a world where LGBT people thrive as healthy, equal and complete members of society. This includes help for youth, homeless, seniors, job-seekers, and artists. Their live fundraising events typically raise around $45,000, and this for-profit venture is an opportunity to raise even more while bringing this show to audiences around the world.

Great rewards!

We have lots of delightful rewards! Check them out and help us bring this fabulous project to life! You can also support by sharing this project with all of your friends.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to take CONVERSATIONS WITH COCO from pilot to series. We have set a funding goal we believe will allow us to film a marketable pilot. Our previous Kickstarter project, ALEC MAPA: BABY DADDY, was sold to Showtime in 2015 and is currently airing there. We believe we can sell this to series by filming at the same level of quality, but in Hollywood there are no guarantees.

Any production faces possible delays due to unforeseen circumstances. We are doing everything possible to bring this in on time for you. Also, because we will be approaching networks to sell a series, we cannot make the film available to the general public until we are cleared to do so. That means we cannot guarantee delivery date of the download and DVD rewards. We have based delivery estimates on our previous successful project, but delays are possible.

If we sell the series, more than likely we can deliver the film to our backers once the pilot has aired. If we do not sell the pilot, we can deliver once we know this information is certain. We can't wait to share the final product with you!

  • 5x7. Coco wants it to fit perfectly on your mantle and an 8x10 is just too big. Unless you have a gigantic fireplace, and in that case, just get 2.

  • At this point, tickets are only available through backing Conversations with Coco at levels of $1,500 and higher on Kickstarter. Tickets are part of the rewards at these higher levels. Once funds are successfully raised on Kickstarter and our campaign is over, tickets will be made available to the general public at a time closer to the event date. General admission tickets will be set at typical theatre ticket prices, still to be determined. Kickstarter backers will be informed promptly via a backer update once this information is made public.

    Last updated:
  • We set a very ambitious goal for Conversations With Coco. Even so, for a TV pilot, $80,000 is on the modest side of what it takes to develop, produce, edit, and package to sell as a series, along with creating backer rewards and covering fees collected by Kickstarter and Amazon. Because we have received such amazing support and reached our minimum goal early, we have set a "stretch goal" to ensure better production value of the pilot, making the likelihood of a series sale much greater, and rewarding our amazing backers with not just a pilot, but a continuing television show, only made possible by their generosity.
