Ralph's World launches TV pilot
Thursday, January 19, 2012
Ralph's World is heading to TV. And they need your help.
The popular band, which has been nominated for a Grammy and whose videos have been featured on Playhouse Disney, has just started shooting a pilot, entitled "Ralph's World: Time Machine Guitar." The half-hour show features Ralph and a band of puppets friends as they make rockin' music videos and embark on time-traveling adventures.
But the band, whose concerts feature a lot of audience participation, is asking the potential audience (or their parents) to help out with the making of the pilot. They've started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $16,000 to help pay for production costs.
The idea, says Ralph, came during a discussion he had with a parent after one of his recent concerts. "Her son overheard us and said, 'I only have a dollar - can I help?'"
The answer is yes. Giving categories start at $1 and go up to $10,000. Prizes include being listed on the website; getting an advanced copy of the show's theme song; new, unpublished songs from the band's upcoming CD; tickets to the band's next show; t-shirts and hats; a Skype call with Ralph; and an original song dedicated to you. Anyone who donates $10,000 or above will be listed as a producer.
