We all navigate complex, challenging relationships. SCRATCH THIS slaps those challenges in the face with a dose of relatability, humor and a shove from someone we love. Family dynamics and conflict are explored as three unlikely cast members deliver an Always Sunny/3 Stooges/Bridesmaids mashup.
Inclusion StatementWe are proud to be an all female driven production and embrace our responsibility to provide equal opportunity in front of and behind the camera. All female is not enough! We realize that being female identifying does not encompass diversity all together. We are intentional in our hiring.
About The Project
What started out as four like-minded creative women answering the call for a “Women in Comedy” film competition, quickly became the award-winning pilot for SCRATCH THIS the webseries.
We were deliberate in our quest for a story that was unique and that only we could tell. To our delight, audiences around the globe have laughed along with these relatable characters. GoIndiTV says, “This is a laugh out loud short.”
“Sisterly love gone awry” is the heart and soul of our series. Each episode uses a consistent formula opening with a startling moment, then flashing back to discover how the sisters got into this mess in the first place. The first frame of each episode will always match the last frame. Cool, huh?!
With your help we will execute our unique approach and bring the following stories to life. Feast your eyes on these babies…
We are Producers, Directors, Writers, Actors and Editors. We don't ask for permission and we fight for our dreams daily. The struggles we face inspire us to create stories that are raw, real, relatable and f*kn funny.
Your support of our series directly fuels our goal to develop, produce, and share our universal truth that our seats at the table whether a family dinner, a board room or on set, are worth fighting for.
