There are just a few days left in the fundraising campaign in support of a second season of “The Disappointments,” the new digital series that follows a group of close friends in their 50s who realize that the life they’re living today falls far short of what they had imagined for themselves when they were 25, including their careers, living situations, family dynamics, romantic relationships and much more.
“Season two promises to be bigger with 10 episodes [at] 22-25 minutes long. That equals the length of TWO feature films!” reads a message on the show’s Indiegogo fundraising page. “There will be even more antics from our four protagonists, new and exciting locations, and an even higher production value. In Season One we pulled in every favor possible to make the show happen. We’re simply not going to have that luxury the second time around, which is another reason why our fundraising goal has increased. Our team will always find the most economic way to make the show happen, but even with our famous thriftiness, this truly is what a new, expanded season will cost. Remember, this is not just for the shoot, but for post-production as well.”
With just over $56,000 raised out of the $100,000 planned, and just four days left of fundraising remaining, if you enjoyed what you saw of the show, or have yet to take a look and like what you see afterward, make sure to provide support however possible.
“If this resonates with you and you’re moved to make a contribution, large or small, you’ll be helping us to meet the budget for a new and expanded season of ‘The Disappointments.’ The scripts are written and polished and the entire team is ready to jump back into production as soon as we have the funds. Over the next 60 days, you alone — our backers — have the power to bring Season Two to life! As Dwight would say, “We believe in you.”
