TV, Film & Broadway Actors Create New Web Series THAT REMINDS ME; Launch Kickstarter Campaign
"That Reminds Me..." The Series is a sitcom about the outrageous things that just happen when you're with the people you love. Think "Modern Family" meets "I Love Lucy!" You know when you get together with your family and crazy things just happen?
For Janie, Kelsey, and their mom, Elaine it's like that every day. Their unique brand of functional dysfunction lands them in the most interesting situations, and they couldn't be happier to be in them together. It's a show for those of us that constantly look at our friends and family and think, "why didn't we tape this?"
That Reminds Me... is a quirky, fun, family oriented sitcom about the outrageous things that just happen when you're with the people you love. With Janie, Kelsey, and Elaine (and don't forget Aunt Carol, Dad Carter, Dad Martin, Grandpa Kelsey, and Chuck) there's always a story! Think Modern Family meets I Love Lucy! Season One will have seven 10-13 minute episodes, tentatively set to air in the Fall/Winter of 2014.
Jenny, Chelsea, Monica, and Marla all met through an extremely unlikely series of events (If we listed them all here you'd think we'd made it up!). We realized very quickly that we had the capacity to do incredible things as a group, but how those things got accomplished was almost never what we expected. As we started to tell our friends the off the wall stories about the shenanigans we somehow were getting ourselves into, we realized something magical was happening. We were becoming a family.
Our four wildly different personalities somehow clicked perfectly. When things seem to be serendipitously falling into place, the chemistry between the people is undeniable, and the sum is exponentially bigger than any one of its parts, you have no choice but to do something about it.
We became the inspiration for That Reminds Me...
And, just like in real life, you just never know what kind of trouble these characters are going to get themselves into...
We are almost ready to start filming except for one major remaining challenge: funding. There are production elements that cannot be donated such as special camera lenses, production insurance, equipment rental and transportation, legal fees... the list goes on and on. The team has set a goal of $25,000 to help cover the fundamental costs of filming the entire first season of That Reminds Me... which will include full production and postproduction costs of all seven episodes.
The goal is to produce the highest possible quality series in order to package it for distribution, festivals, and eventually air it online for everyone who wants to tune in.
Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated-even if it's just watching the show when it airs, sending your love, and spreading the word to all your friends. Thank you so much for your support!
