What we hope to accomplish with the 13 episodes of Extreme Rising TV:
-Entertaining pro wrestling television with edgy storylines and characters that captures the “extreme spirit,” mixed with its share of humor, realism, and featuring the best athletic wrestling with high flying maneuvers and hardcore stunts. While the WWE enjoys its PG rating, we take pride in delivering something edgier, grittier, and more extreme. It promises to be the most entertaining hour of wrestling on TV each week.
-We hope to bridge the gaps of live events and DVDs to “make sense” to the fans who have been following, and give them the meat and potatoes of Extreme Rising, truly revealing the vision and direction of the company.
-To build and advance characters and storylines, and offer a true wrestling alternative.
Why We Need Money: To make 13 weeks of TV includes time and money that we don’t currently have available, but the proper funding will allow us to quickly switch gears into television production mode. We have roughly 20 hours of footage from matches, to promos, already recorded. We will also have to grab a few promos to finish/continue some storylines. Our costs include editing and production, voiceovers (all footage being re-voiced for TV to give concise calls and to drive the character development and storyline home), hard drives, closed captioning, incidentals expenditures like travel, and other post-production expenses. We’ll also need to fund the production of our perks for backers including producing/shipping the DVDs and fulfilling all the other perks we offer. There are fees taken out by indiegogo.com/paypal.com, as well as business expenses/legal, paying taxes, and so on. We are sure you understand the idea. This is a large project, we live it and love it, but we need the fans help.
Why It Is Important We Make Extreme Rising TV: First, we are trying to do something that the fans want and demand. It is a large undertaking, and we need help. Second, we would like to see if our vision of wrestling has legs, even given the limited exposure of TV in Philly, NJ, DE, possibly Pittsburgh, and the Internet to start. Having an Extreme Rising TV show can open A LOT of doors for Extreme Rising and with the fans help, JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL ECW, can get Extreme Rising not only on TV with this proposal, but to give the extra push so that the executives who make the real decisions see that Extreme Rising is a tangible, viable source of Wrestling and entertainment that people, not only in the United States want, but the World.
If you pledge and believe in us, we will do everything in our power to produce the best TV Extreme Rising is able to do within budgetary constraints.
