Newlywed and Broke is a web series that will be a modern day “I Love Lucy”. Where “I Love Lucy” pulled back the curtain on a couple dealing with life in show business, “Newlywed and Broke” will pull the curtain back on a couple dealing with today’s trying times of job loss and financial hardships… in hilarious ways! Each episode you’ll see a rib-tickling, laughter-inducing new way they struggle to make and save money.
The project is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
The goal of the company’s Indiegogo campaign is to produce a TV quality web series that will first air on the Newlywed and Broke website. Once there is an established market for the show, the series will be pitched to networks like ABC, FOX, HBO etc.
Here is a recap on the show:
I LOVE funny, new comedy, relationship shows that I can relate to. My husband and I been married for 7 years going on 8 and in the beginning it gets rough. Both lives are coming together, your crazy spending habitats, your spouse reasonings on spending and how they do things will either make or break how you guys do things together.
Nowadays finances is the #1 reason couples break up and get a divorce. I like that this show brings a funny spin to relationships, finances and helping couples in the end.
Let’s consider helping out the cause, In helping out this new, funny television show, and couples becoming debt FREE!!!
In addition to the series, the show’s website will feature 52 You Tube style videos called, “Broke Tip Tuesdays”. Each week, these videos will provide viewers great money-saving tips by covering subjects such as “Broke Dating”, “Broke Cooking”, “Broke Travel” and many more. The crowd funding campaign page is currently offering project supporters the opportunity to share their stories and broke tips, some of which will end up in future episodes.

“The Newlywed and Broke crowdfunding project marks the first time that crowdfunding campaign manager, John-Michael Scott and crowdfunding campaign promoter, Philip Cardwell have joined forces in support of a crowdfunding film project. “When John-Michael called to explain the shows concept and the previous accomplishments of the group involved in the project, I felt obligated to take a look. What I saw, was a well-crafted, hilarious pitch for, what I believe will be, a future primetime TV series,” stated Philip Cardwell, Founder of Universal Media Consultants.”
