Oscar Winning Screenwriter, Pamela Wallace and Mingle Media TV CEO, Stephanie Piche, Team Up and Use Crowdfunding to Produce “The Big O” a Twofer Web Series / Feature
MMTVN is pleased to announce that CEO, Stephanie Piche, will be teaming up with Oscar-winning screenwriter, Pamela Wallace, to produce a series based on a provocative look into women’s sex lives, including the secrets they don’t tell their best friends. The fundraising campaign will kick off on IndieGoGo and offer perks to brands as well as individuals.
The Big O is a provocative, no-holds-barred look into women’s sex lives, including the secrets they don’t even tell their best friends. The first season will have a story arc that blends all ten, ten-minute episodes together which will be released on a weekly basis as a web series and will also be released as a 100 minute long feature film for distribution.
All of the characters are relatable to the female audience with the tone of the episodes being extremely up close and personal, as the "therapist" has frank and insightful exchanges with her clients one-on-one or two-on-one when the "sex surrogate" is involved, giving the series a compelling intensity. Despite the sometimes-sensitive subject matter, the series is imbued with hope and an empowering approach to women while having those hooks to keep the audience guessing about what’s going to happen next. It is the plan of the producers to create several seasons of this series as the story opportunities are endless.
Crowdfunding and Brand Sponsorships
The Big O producing team will be launching an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign and will offer two types of perks including perks for brand sponsorship utilizing the social reach of MMTVN who has over 12K Facebook fans and over 25K Twitter followers and over 3 million vies as a YouTube Partner. The Big O team are looking for brands who want to reach the female audience from travel and hospitality, fashion retailers, jewelers, restaurants, florists as well as hair and beauty brands. By giving supporters and fans behind the scenes access to the production from pre to post, The Big O social / transmedia story tellers can authentically share how the brands tie into the support of making this project possible from wardrobe, set dressing, to hair and makeup and include call-to-actions (CTAs), for sharing links, discounts, and other benefits to fans.
Ms. Wallace is a master storyteller, she's proven it over and over and has wanted to create a digital series utilizing transmedia storytelling where the subject of sex, love and intimacy can be explored without censorship and constriction of traditional television / cable boundaries. The team is in hopes of attracting top "named" talent from the Director to the lead actress and actor along with the other cast members.
