Graduating Film Majors Independently Fund TV Pilot

Jake Gillman and Andie Isaacs are both graduating seniors at the University of Miami. The two graduates have teamed together with Isaacs’ Emmy award winning father, David Isaacs (credits include M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frasier, Mad Men, The Simpsons and more). David also graduated from UM in 71' making this the university's first family legacy collaboration. They are collaborating to develop a compelling pilot about a man from Brooklyn, David Mars, and his struggles to become a prominent screenwriter. To make this project possible, the production team has turned to the crowdfunding community on Indiegogo. The goal is to raise $20,000.

David Mars is a neurotic screenwriter whose sanity is in question as he lives with his cougar mother. It has been years since Mars has written anything worth producing. Audiences will witness various themes that are relatable in the world today such as passion, humility, and much more. People will fall in love with David Mars and experience his heartfelt story of wanting to become successful.

In order to deal with his neuroticism, Mars’ therapists suggests he write an episodic diary. This is perceived as television content reflecting his every day life called, “Life on Mars.” After years of pitching screenplays, an up-and-coming agent stumbles upon his “diary” and loves it. Now his time has finally come, but he must reveal his private and humiliating shortcomings in his life to the world in the form of an heartfelt TV show.

Alec Roth, son of producer and writer, Eric Roth, will produce the pilot along side graduating seniors Alexa Prosniewski and Robert Combs. Both Jake and Andie have previous experience working on pieces of work on HBO for different screenplays such as “The Things They Left Behind” and the series “Ballers.”
