The launch party for my new show “Geek Cred” was so much fun!

The main man behind it all, Daniel Beals, is a genuine lover of comics and all things geek. They launched the IndieGogo campaign on Wed, Feb 5th with a goal of $36,000 to try and fund the entire first season of the show. But the lovely thing about IndieGogo is that you can keep any and all money raised, so at the very least, you guys will definitely get to see a few episodes before ComicCon. More info:

GEEK CRED is a new workplace comedy series set in a comic book store. Created by Daniel Beals (Mediating Kidnapper, Old Rivalry, The Zombie Whisperer) the show stars Michele Boyd (Team Unicorn, How I Met Your Mother, FlashForward), Wes Robertson (Dwelling, Blunderkind, Hell & Mr. Fudge), Damion Poitier (True Blood, Pair of Kings, Hunter Prey and The Avengers), and Miley Yamamoto (How to Rock, RETCON).

MOAR Info from the campaign itself:

The campaign starts NOW. We shoot at the end of March and begin airing at the end of May, a new episode every week as we lead up to Comic Con 2014, around when we’ll air our season finale!

We have a minimum goal of $36,000 that we need to raise in order to even do the series at “favor” level. This is the minimum amount necessary to get our entire first season (10 8-minute episodes) produced.

If you can’t donate, that’s okay. You can still help out!

Please share our campaign and series with all of your friends and family through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr… Any social media presence you may have. Use hashtags #GeekCred and link back to the IndieGoGo campaign: http://igg.me/at/geekcred/x/3559090

Sharing from our Indiegogo page would be a HUGE boon for us as the more referrals our campaign gets through the Indiegogo site, the greater our chances of getting featured on the front page and gaining more attention.

It’s such a great cast and crew. The read-through had us dying from laughter, and it’s only gonna get better when we’re shooting in our actual beloved comic store. The hardest part is going to be getting through the shoot without buying out half their merchandise!

Some promotional posters for the series and the campaign in general. Can you tell which comic covers they’re based on?
