A few years ago I met Adam Reid, he’s a director, illustrator, storyteller, producer, brand jedi extraordinaire from Maplewood, New Jersey. He co-founded the production company and agency Bodega Studios.
From the moment my family met him we thought he was very cool, and not just because he was shooting a Mazda commercial in our house with Minnie Driver. (She is also very cool).
And now… his coolness meter has reached grand new heights! Because Adam is working on an animated sci-fi sitcom starring two of my most favorite people in the whole world Former President Barack Obama and Former Vice President Joe Biden. Adam, like myself, misses these two and their “bromance” but it goes beyond the wit, humor and classic aviator sunglasses. This is about two bold, charming men who are going to be given the chance to go back in time (with their current knowledge) and save the world! Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson! *squeal* I am so excited!
Adam writes, “If you’re like me, you’re more than a bit concerned lately about the fate of our country, our planet, and humanity itself.
And while we need new heroes to step in and stand up for what is right, I can’t help but intensely miss Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
I dream about how the world might be different if we could go back in time and make better choices understanding what we know now. If only there was some way to set things right.”
Currently, this whole concept is in a Kickstarter phase. Your help is needed! The perks for backing this series are pretty stellar if I do say so myself. Pledge $75 and get a “Barry and Joe” coloring book! Pledge $100 for the “Hoodie of Resistance.” And for those of you with let’s say $10,000 extra laying around to invest in something super awesome, you will have an opportunity to get producer credit, A SPEAKING ROLE IN THE SERIES, a hoodie AND a poster! WHAT!?
But even a pledge of $5 can get you a digital pack of Barry & Joe themed artwork which is amazing!
Please, please share this with your friends and family and people you meet in elevators that go up 15 floors and you’re not sure what to say. Print out the image, tell them about the Kickstarter and get them on board!
