Los Angeles, CA – On February 29 2016, Tomorrow’s Nobody launched a Kickstarter campaign for Court Ordered, a new cartoon series that follows the trials and tribulations of a recovering alcoholic, drug addict. The show is loosely based on the life and stand-up of comedian Erik Myers and features stories from an all comedian cast and ongoing guest stars.
“Court Ordered is the cartoon I’ve wanted to make since I was a little kid,” says Eric Freedman, founder of Tomorrow’s Nobody, “A no-holds-barred series that takes aim at everything, and everyone, done so with some of my favorite comedians.”
Court Ordered is a show about down on his luck alcoholic, drug addict Erik Myers, who is sentenced to Rehab Group Therapy after being arrested for drunk driving. There, Erik meets an array of characters who help him on his journey to getting rehabilitated back into life. Court Ordered follows his struggles with the stresses of looking for work, dating, and dealing with everyday people, all while completely sober.
The cast of Court Ordered is made up of some great stand-up comedians, including Sam Tripoli, Stephanie Simbari, Craig Phillip Conant, Becky Robinson, and Jay Davis. Now Erik Myers, writer/producer Eric Freedman, and director/animator Tony Celano have turned to the Kickstarter community for help funding the production of an 11-minute Animated Pilot Episode to be released in September 2016.
“We produced a short of the cartoon last year with the money we could pull together and everyone pitching in their time for free,” Freedman explains, “It was featured on both FUNNY OR DIE and NEWGROUNDS, and was very well received. That was just a small taste of what we are looking to accomplish with the series, both animation and story-wise. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a special edition Court Ordered Sobriety Coin and an HD Download of the Pilot for $15, digital access to updates, artwork, and special features plus a Google Hangout Q&A with the creators for $25, and more. Backers can also pledge $75 for a ticket to the cartoon’s official premier in Los Angeles and Arizona, where the comics will perform, or $100 to become a Court Ordered cartoon character!
