    PLEDGE NOW. bit.ly/peacekeepers Alana’s on 24-hour call to a boss who sends her on urgent missions to narrowly avert intimate disasters – a car crash, a leap from the Queensboro Bridge, a slip into the lion pit at the Bronx Zoo. She works for a Peacekeeper, and she’s one of dozens who crisscross the city to save lives. And her texting boss? The urban legends and her friend Sophie insist that it’s God, but Alana has her doubts. If the Peacekeeper she works for IS actually God with an iPhone, why the hell does he need a bunch of twentysomethings to help him divinely intervene? Why now? Why can't they save everybody? And why has the Peacekeeper attracted such powerful enemies? We’re here on Indiegogo to fund our first season of the sci-fi thriller Peacekeepers with a minimum goal of $17,000 for two episodes. For every $8,500 we raise beyond that minimum goal we will be able to shoot episodes four, five and six. With your pledge, we can complete filming and release all six episodes on our website at peacekeepersnyc.com.

    • TMH5, Panel Four: Indie TV - Where Creators & Fans Pilot New Shows

      The Internet broke the network bottleneck. Through platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo, creators release series directly to fans who follow shows and share them with friends. Web-content creators can write stories in whatever length, style and genre they choose, on their own schedule, and with actors of their choosing. The result is a truly open television ecosystem, where creators, talent and fans work together to realize stories they want to see. Each of the producers on this panel contributes to this new vision of television by producing series for the Internet that are being shaped for traditional TV as well; (several of these web series are being developed for HBO). Issa Rae created “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” with a small team and expanded the show using a successful crowdfunding campaign. Rae went on to produce additional series, including Amy Rubin’s “Little Horribles,” which Rubin released via her own Barnacle Studios. In the process, “Little Horribles” has become a hit with fans and with critics at Variety, LA Weekly and Splitsider, among others. Dennis Dortch and Numa Perrier launched the Black & Sexy TV network to showcase indie comedy, releasing their own hit series “The Couple,” and releasing additional series created by other emerging Hollywood talent. Jay Bushman helped “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” grow into a deeply engaging transmedia phenomenon, which prompted viewers of the Jane Austen-inspired series to follow characters from YouTube to Twitter and Pinterest. Raising tens of thousands of dollars from fans, Adam Goldman created and wrote two critically-acclaimed dramas, “The Outs” and “Whatever this is,” exploring the realities of being insecure in New York City. After showrunner Brad Bell co-created “Husbands” with Jane Espenson, the indie hit caught the eye of CW executives, who used the series to launch their new online network. As these examples convey, the Internet has become an incubator for talented, next-generation web creators and web celebs, who, in combination with fan followers, are reinventing television for the digital age. Panelists: Brad Bell - Co-creator and star, “Husbands” Jay Bushman - Producer and writer, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” Adam Goldman - Writer and director, “Whatever This Is:” Numa Perrier - Co-founder, Black & Sexy TV Issa Rae - Creator and star, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” Amy Rubin - Creator and star, “Little Horribles” Moderator: Aymar Jean Christian - Assistant professor, Northwestern University
