‘When Fact Met Fiction’

Chances are you missed the first season of When Fact Met Fiction, a rom-com set at fictional Southern Sunset magazine that follows the relationship between a secretly famous romance novelist and an up-and-coming technical editor.

If you’re a writer, editor or just a sitcom fan and think When Fact Met Fiction might be worth a try, here’s the first episode:

The first season of eight 10-minute episodes was produced on a boot-strapped budget of $12,000 in just 54 hours, and ran weekly this past December through February on YouTube and the When Fact Met Fiction website.

Now the producers are planning a second season – at a 1,000% budget increase. Yes, you read that right. They’re seeking $120,000 for another eight 10-minute episodes. So this time, they’ve launched a crowd-funding campaign.

“We want to take the show to the next level production-wise, and to do that we need more time on set and in post-production,” explained Stefan Liner, who co-created the series with his mother Robin Liner. “We’re committed to the story, and we’re committed to paying the people that help us tell the story. Everyone that works on our sets gets paid.”

If you’d like to ensure season two of When Fact Met Fiction, you can visit the show’s Indiegogo campaign.
