CHECK OUT THE TRAILERS OF OUR FIRST THREE SEASONS:
After three successful seasons, we are now ready to shoot a Season 4!
BUT THE ONLY WAY WE CAN MAKE ANOTHER SEASON IS WITH YOUR HELP!
Season 4 will thrust Reggie, Wood, Nelson and Todd into yet another thrilling murder mystery surrounding the upcoming nuptials of everyone's favorite bear couple, Nelson and Todd! At the same time, Reggie's true crime TV show becomes a hit on the Inquisitive Channel and sparks begin to fly because of his new co-stars Det. Chad Winters and Captain Coley. Meanwhile, Wood decides to start his own swimwear line called "Sporting Wood" with sidekick George Ridgemont which provides them the opportunity to audition, dress and photograph hot bear models for a living! All while Nelson and Todd plan for the wedding of the century which is most sure to go awry! Season 4 will feature the usual parade of hot, sexy, hairy men that fans adore, the hilarious comedy everyone expects from the show, and a nail-biting climax that the show if famous for!
We, the creators (Rick Copp, Joe Dietl and Ben Zook), used Kickstarter to fund Season 3 and everyone was amazing with their generosity and support! People loved Season 3 so we are back to do it again, but we need your help!
Our show is a professional production, and is shot in the entertainment capitol of the world, Los Angeles. Shooting in L.A. is tremendously expensive. We do the best we can to cut costs, but we insist on paying our amazing cast and crew enough money not to have to work other day jobs. It takes a lot of time, equipment, people and money to make our show look as good as it does. So, we are asking for a lot of money from you. We need as many people to give as possible.
We are constantly being compared to other TV shows and gay features which cost millions of dollars to produce. We are proud of this comparison, and would love to bring you another high quality season at a budget that you, the fans, can afford to support.
$150,000 is the minimum we need to make another season of our show. We shoot just like a feature film, out of sequence with dozens of characters, multiple locations, original music, and even special effects. Here is how the $150,000 will be used…
10% will go to Kickstarter and Amazon Payments
10% will go to fulfilling the terrific rewards we will give you for contributing to the campaign.
10% will go to Insurance and Legal Contracts necessary for production.
10% will go to Locations, Permits, Equipment, Office Supplies

20% will go to Post Production - Editing, Sound, Music, DVD production and replication.

Risks and challenges
Risks and Challenges
Making an independent web series that also cuts into a full-length feature film is difficult. However, we’ve worked in the industry for decades and hire experienced professionals to make the most out of our limited budget.
We don’t have a studio behind us. It’s just the three of us. Anything and everything can still go wrong, from weather, illness to any kind of emergency. But, we have a proven track record, having produced three previous successful seasons of our show, racking up over 11 MILLION VIEWS in the process. We love making it, and are confident Season 4 will be bigger and better than ever!
IT’S GOING TO BE AN AMAZING RIDE! BE A PART OF IT!
And thank you for believing in and supporting the show!
