Coming Soon...You Can Be In It!


A new family-friendly comedy series inspired by The Andy Griffith Show and the Mayberry Man movie.


Investors + Crowdfunding

Producing a television series is a big undertaking. While our previous movie project relied heavily on crowdfunding, this time we will have private investors providing significant funding. That said, we want to keep the fans involved and crowdfunding is a great way to do that. In fact, it’s ultimately your enthusiasm and crowdfunding contributions that will help determine the number of episodes we produce.
