Project Name: The Pet Peeve Police
Asking For: $18,000 through Seed & Spark
Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $10,168
Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 14
Description: There are too many douchebags in the world, but if a pair of no-nonsense officers get their way, those jerks will soon find themselves facing justice. Sarah Delpizzo and Melissa Graver are the writers and stars of The Pet Peeve Police, a comedy that calls people out for their inconsiderate behavior.
Delpizzo and Graver’s characters are law enforcers who want to put obnoxious individuals in their place and call them out for their actions. While The Pet Peeve Police‘s two creators haven’t discussed any particular patterns of behavior they plan to shame, they hope to make people laugh along the way. The show will mine comedy from its protagonists’ self-serious attitudes and from numerous pop culture references.
One episode of The Pet Peeve Police has already been shot, and the plan is to make seven more. Here are some more details:
Best Perk: Anyone who pitches in at least $50 will receive a copy of a video that shows the exercise routine the Pet Peeve Police practice before they go out. Do those calisthenics and you too may be able to make the world a less annoying place.
Why You Should Fund It: Delpizzo and Graver’s plan is to create relatable scenarios that depict common pet peeves before swiftly excoriating the perpetrators of those behaviors. If there are small things in life that irritate you, consider The Pet Peeve Police as an outlet for your frustration. The show looks like it will be a pleasant mood booster, with plenty of wit to boot.
