There are angels among us, but people rarely take the time to acknowledge them-- Especially in television shows.
Gone are the times when families could sit around the television as a unit and watch a scripted show together. There aren't any shows like "Touched by an Angel" or "Seventh Heaven" or even "Highway to Heaven" anymore. The wholesome family shows have been replaced by raunchy reality shows. The warm hugs have been erased, and blurred sexual encounters have taken their place.
It's time to go back to our roots.
"Little Cupid" is a wholesome family series brought to you by the same team that brought you "New Dogs, Old Tricks ." A young girl is visited by her father, a special forces soldier that has been MIA for eight years, who needs help earning his wings to get to Heaven. No one sees him but his daughter. In order to earn his wings, his assignment from "The Big Guy Upstairs" is to bring soulmates together. Given permission to work with his daughter for help, they learn more about one another and make up for lost time.
The first season will be 10 episodes, lasting about 30 minutes each. We are guaranteed to be on Prime Video, but would love for network distribution. Creator Candice Cain and Executive Producer Amy Minter will be heading to NATPE (a conference for TV shows) at the end of January to obtain global distribution. We would love to have at least the first episode completed!
Since this is a feel good show about helping others, we decided to contribute a percentage of the net profits to different charities. Each episode will have a specific charity designated to earn 5%, decided by either one of our producers or by someone that contributes. Should we raise the full $30,000 for the first episode and no one chose a charity from the rewards, Creator Candice Cain will choose the charity that received 5% of the profits.
Should we raise the funding for the first episode quickly, we will film on Long Island at the end of December, while the kids are off of school. Please note that ALL rewards for kids to be on set will be when there is no school-- Either during break or on the weekend.
Rewards will change with every episode, as will the goal that we want to raise. Some episodes will be more than $30K, some will be less. We are relying on you to help us.
There are 14 characters in the first episode of "Little Cupid." They are as follows:
Reader played by George Zouvelos
Principal played by Kenney Myers
Each time we raise $2,150, we will announce who is playing one of the characters (in no particular order). Please do check out all of the rewards below that we have and stay tuned for updates.
