Hello everyone! This is writer Eric Pzena, and director Dani Hanks of Fake News Writer. When we created this web series we set out to make an even-handed comedy that makes fun of extremism from both liberals and conservatives. We wanted to explore themes of fake news, the political tensions in our country, being a millennial and more. 

Our audience is still building and our fan-base has been extremely encouraging and kind. First, we want to say THANK YOU for supporting us through season 1!

So, Season 2?

Season 2 is already written, and we're working our hardest to make it happen. Our writer is confident that the script for season 2 is better than season 1 and so he is really eager to make it. If you loved Season 1, you'll love Season 2 even more!

But – in order for this to happen, we need to continue grow in order to secure outside funding from a streaming service, an investor, or fund a second season ourselves. 

Over the next few months we will be submitting to film festivals and continuing to advertise and build our audience. We will keep our fans entertained and our channel alive with exciting new content like bloopers, commentary, interviews and behind-the-scenes clips. 

Unfortunately, this all costs a lot of money. But by pledging a certain amount of $ each month you can help our dreams become a reality. Money will go to the marketing of our page and the potential funding for a second season.
