This chaotically dysfunctional family of would-be rock/pop stars traverses the country in a cramped tour bus sacrificing privacy, comfort and dignity while in search of fame and fortune. Struggling to navigate their lives and relationships while juggling what’s best for the family versus what’s best for the band, they invariably end up making very unfortunate decisions.

UPDATED PROJECT – 3,24,17 - COMPLETED PROJECT
 

"YOU ME HER" (Season 2)  -  Television Series 

Cast:  Greg Poehler (Welcome To Sweden), Rachel Blanchard (Snakes On A Plane, Fargo, Peep Show), Priscilla Faia (Rookie Blue), Melanie Papalia (The Newsroom, Suits)
Network:  DirecTV's Audience Network
Production Company:  eOne Television 
Music Supervisor:  Mason Cooper
Status:  Post Production  

SYNOPSIS:  Centering around a suburban Portland, Oregon married couple, YOU ME HER pays homage to classic romantic comedy even while contorting it into “polyromantic comedy”: What began as an impulsive  “date” between the suburban husband Jack and neophyte escort Izzy in season one, spun into a whirlwind scenario that included Jack’s wife Emma. After running through the gauntlet of emotions and societal opinions, we find in season two the embrace of a unique relationship – and how sometimes what we thought we knew, or knew we thought, or felt, gets turned upside down when playtime ends and real life enters back in… 

MUSIC NEEDS: INDIE and EMERGING ARTISTS and Songs (unsigned okay) - open to Males, Females, Bands  
**Special Notes:  this season we are still targeting a “Portland style” artist/music approach (actual Portland artists not a requirement for pitches, but let us know if they are)… not drastically different from last season, but aiming more contemporary/hip/today and edgy/alt cool… 

 

PRIMARY NEEDS:  PROJECT IS COMPLETED - NO FURTHER SUBMISSIONS

•   Spot Closed: SPOT A:  Coffee Shop / Singer-Songwriter (full productions to guitar/vocals, all tempos) - ala Courtney Barnett, Elliot Smith, Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes, Kate Nash, Ryan Adams, Tame Impala

 

SECONDARY NEEDS:

•   Spot Closed: SPOT E:  Sexy/electro/rock (from subtly ‘sultry’ to ‘playful’ to sexy/rock) - ala Phantogram, Banks, Feist, Mads Langer, Lykke Li, Oh Land

 

 NEW FOCUS NEEDS: **both of these new spots - think "fun punk" or "sexy vibey punk" (NOT dark or heavy angst punk)

  •   Spot Closed: SPOT H:  Fun Punk - ala temps such as: Mannequin Pussy "Emotional High", Japandroids "Young Hearts Spark Fire", The Pixies "Hey", The Disturbed "I Don't Believe"
