RIGHT. THIS. MINUTE. (hint, hint)

Once again, we would like to thank all those who contributed via our Indiegogo campaign, volunteered their time, donated goods and services, or just believed in our abilities, trusted our talents and supported us as creative folks.  We seriously could not have done it without y’all and we are beyond grateful!!

Does TK work at Buster’s? Maybe you can decide….

While we can’t reveal our exact release date yet folks, we can keep the updates and teasers coming! So here’s just a little bit more fat for y’all to chew on while ya wait for the full first season—all TEN EPISODES— to be released very soon!!

And maybe y’all can help us figure out whether or not TK actually works at Buster’s….

We love y’all to pieces,

The Bless Her Heart Gals

Just a little tease…….

You know what they say y’all… anything worth having, doing or showing takes effort, money, and time.

Well, we certainly had plenty of folks putting in the effort, and lots of y’all helped with the money part. And it’s taking time. After almost a year, we are happy to reveal the first teaser for our Pilot episode. Oh, and God willing and the creek don’t rise…. you’ll be able to watch all 10 episodes REAL SOON 🙂

In the meantime, here’s a little something for you!

Y’all funded. Shooting wrapped. Now we’re editing!!

SCUMtailgate3
From the looks on our tailgaters’ faces…. exciting things are happening!!

 

Okay y’all. We’ve pretty much done the impossible. Are y’all ready to hear all about it? I thought so.

We wrapped shooting on not only our original goal of 6 episodes, but also 4 additional ones, for a total of TEN EPISODES! That’s right, with your amazing contributions we have a 10-episode season that we’ll begin releasing as soon as we have completed the editing process. Oh, and did I mention we were able to shoot it in just 3 days? That was due to the relentless dedication and professionalism of the cast and crew we are fortunate to have on this project.

However, NONE of it would’ve been possible without the belief  of those who generously  contributed to  our Indiegogo campaign by donating, sharing the link and making sure we reached our goal. So we wish to thank the following folks for taking a chance and truly helping make our dream a reality.

And  of course, last but not least…. a huge thank you to our families, who were patient with us while enduring long, late-night production meetings, location scouting trips, disastrous homes strewn with props and wardrobe, endless hours on the phone or computer, frozen dinners or takeout instead of home cooked meals, incessant begging for them to be background actors or crew members, and  general crankiness when sh*t occasionally hit the fan . Y’all are the best and we love you more than Bama fans love The Crimson Tide being #1 in the playoff polls right now!!

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Doc is gone, and Helga REALLY misses him….

With ONLY HOURS LEFT in our Indiegogo for THE BAR, Helga is in full mourning over the loss of her beloved Doc. Despite Agnes and JoAnn trying their best to console her, there seems to be only one thing that would make her feel better. Watch and see if maybe y’all can help lift her spirits!

And to everyone who has already donated….THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT! We certainly can’t do this without you, and would love you more than a pig loves mud if you’d keep SHARING THE CAMPAIGN via Facebook, Twitter, email, word-of-mouth….you name it! In this last week, we could really use a boost to reach our goal!!

Thanks y’all 🙂

THE BAR: Behind the Scenes

Alrighty… it’s crunch time. So we thought we’d give you a glimpse of some behind the scenes shenanigans on THE BAR. We have the most AMAZING Head Writer, and she’s here to tell you all about what it’s like working together. And of course, a few of the cast members have some thoughts on it too 🙂

There’s ONE WEEK AND A DAY LEFT for y’all to be part of our project!! We are 49% funded, but really need your help in this last week in order to reach our goal. Donate if you can, share the campaign link via social media and let’s reach our goal in style, with an epic fourth quarter touchdown, just like any SEC team would!!!

Go Fighting Ferrets!!!

Much love to y’all,

The Bless Her Heart Gals

Boys will be boys….especially when they are FRAT BOYS!

As many of y’all know by now, our web series, THE BAR, takes place at a charming little dive bar called Buster’s on the edge of an SEC campus. So naturally, frat boy tomfoolery is common.  Watch below as Wheeler and Trey get fired up about our Indiegogo campaign as Tank and Agnes referee.

There’s plenty of time left to DONATE (every penny counts, y’all) and spread the word about THE BAR via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email, word of mouth, snail mail…carrier pigeon…you name it! We really appreciate the support thus far, and hope to blast our goal higher than a Georgia pine in these last 2 weeks!  But we can only do it with your help 🙂

Thanks y’all!

Who Doesn’t Love Strawberry Jam?!!

Hey there!

Comin’ atcha with a quick update from Trey and Agnes, the resident “lovebirds-with-a-past” at Buster’s. Oh, and JoAnn is chaperoning them. It’s a party, y’all! Just see for yourself….

Giant smooches to everyone for your contributions and continued support of THE BAR! Please keep donating at Indiegogo, and runnin’ your mouths about the project to everyone who’ll sit still and listen. We really wanna blow our goal right on out o’ the water in the next few days and bring you this hilarious web series.  And with your help, we’ll get it to you faster than a knife fight in a phone booth!
