YouTube Comedy Group Tin Can Brothers Crowdfund Original Webseries and Podcast
YouTube comedy group, the Tin Can Brothers, are crowdfunding their newest project, THE WAYWARD GUIDE FOR THE UNTRAINED EYE , a web series with a companion podcast. The show follows Artemis, a tenacious podcast host, and her twin brother/producer, Paul, on assignment in a small southwestern mining town. What starts as a typical "This American Life" style story turns into a full blown investigation as they discover that half of the eccentric characters in the town are actually werewolves.
THE WAYWARD GUIDE FOR THE UNTRAINED EYE is a 10 episode webseries inspired by the podcasts Serial and S-Town, crossed with the game One Night Ultimate Werewolf, peppered with the surreal comedy of Pushing Daisies and Twin Peaks . WAYWARD GUIDE will feature the Tin Can Brothers' signature absurd and larger-than-life comedy that also tugs at your heartstrings.
More information about the campaign can be found on Kickstarter at: http://wayward.guide.
