Hello, iggle nation! I’m so very stoked to come to you today with an exciting new project announcement, from the infamous co-creator and co-producer of Beetlejuice, Larry Wilson. And – we’re raffling off a signed Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas, or Addams Family poster as well! Stay tuned at the bottom for details!
Writer and producer (and receiver of much geek love) Larry Wilson has a new project on Kickstarter that needs our help. Best known as the co-writer and co-producer of Beetlejuice, co-writer of The Addams Family, and for writing and directing six seasons of Tales from the Crypt, Larry is the source of many things we love to love, especially this time of year as we head toward Halloween.
His new project, CINDY, is a web-series that is a very modern telling of the classic story of Cinderella set in the world of reality TV drama. It features a cast of wonderfully twisted characters, as you would expect, and it looks like it’s going to be a fantastical romp where nothing is what you expect it to be.
In Larry’s words:
The character Cindy is a foster child (read: maid, unpaid personal assistant and emotional punching bag). Her “family” are reality TV superstars who make the Kardashians look warm and fuzzy. Then add a Fairy Godmother with a drug problem, a handsome Prince who is over twice Cindy’s age. and a young PA who has fallen in love with Cindy and is determined to rescue her, even if it ends his TV career before it’s really started.
The project has so far been personally funded, but they are in need of post-production magic to make this fairy tale into reality. Their Kickstarter page has a lot of great information on the project and a ton of awesome perks you can get for supporting the series.
Now I have to tell you, I’ve checked it out and it looks amazing. The characters are engaging and it’s like watching the best kind of reality TV but amped up with magic and mayhem and maybe a little mystery, too. The perks include everything from digital downloads to signed movie posters (Signed Beetlejuice and Addams Family posters? Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands posters signed by screenwriter Caroline Thompson? Yes, please!) all the way to Larry Wilson’s personal help with your screenplay. Pretty great stuff.
