Hollis and I are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the project. We raised $50,000 on kickstarter to cover production expenses. Your generosity helped make the series a reality.
We are currently writing the pilot episode of Teachers Lounge for television. We’ll be shopping it around looking for a home, so keep your fingers crossed.
