Former ‘One Tree Hill’ stars launch campaign to raise funds

Los Angeles, June 7 (IANS) Former “One Tree Hill” stars James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti are currently pitching out their pilot, “Everyone Is Doing Great”. They have also launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds and get the fans involved.

“It’s consistent with the way that we shot the pilot,” Lafferty, who co-wrote the show and plays the lead of Jeremy, told about the decision to crowdfund the project.

“We didn’t have a whole lot of funding, we just had a group of people that were really passionate and really believed in the project. We got our pilot done and we did what we set out to do.”

He continued: “The natural progression in thinking about how to get the season made, was how can we do this ourselves and continue to preserve this process that we’ve come up with?

“Indiegogo was the best way to keep our creative process insulated and the best way to connect with the fans and people that have been so supportive with us through the years and get them involved in the conception of the whole thing.”

The show, which is also making the TV festival circuit this summer, centres around Jeremy and Seth (Colletti), two actors in Los Angeles who are struggling to find what’s next, five years after starring in a blockbuster vampire franchise.

The dark comedy tracks the best friends as they work together to figure out their career paths as well as the ins and outs of life and love.
