(exciting music) – We interrupt your daily
scroll through social media to bring you the best
thing you’ll see today. – Unless you were browsing
Facebook Marketplace because I’ve seen some
hilarious stuff on there. – We’ve just been told that your favorite Southern sketch comedy
team is ready to move from your tiny phone screen
to your living room TV. – The creators of So True, Y’all the sketch comedy team
from It’s A Southern Thing have plans for a full length sitcom pilot. And sources say they need your help. – For more on this story, we
go to directly to the sources the creators of So True Y’all
from It’s A Southern Thing. Adam, Matt, Luke. Are you there?
– We are. Thank you for having us. – Can you tell us whether or
not these rumors are true? – They are true. I know every dance move to
Blanco Brown’s The Get Up and will gladly perform them for you now. – No, no.
Please, don’t. – I think she’s talking about the TV show. – Oh.
That makes more sense. – But the rumors are true. We have a great idea for a TV show. – Can you give us a brief
synopsis of what it’s about? Maybe longer than an elevator pitch but not quite as detailed
as a series bible? – That’s oddly specific, but sure. – Our show is called Broken News and it’s about a former anchor
from a national news program who got fired for some
pretty embarrassing stuff. So now he’s having to climb
his way back up to the top. – The first stop on that climb is one of the smallest news
stations in the country WTTM News, channel 12
in Burndale, Alabama. – It’s not a real place, so
don’t bother looking it up. – This big shot reporter
thinks he knows everything there is to know about news but he’s never experienced life in a small southern town before. – ‘Cause let’s face it, the news here is– – It’s weird. It’s really weird. – That sounds like a great idea that could provide countless episodes of hilarious and relatable content that millions of people
have already come to expect from their favorite comedy
brand, It’s A Southern Thing. – Aw. – Thank you for saying that Talia. – I think the question here is, why? Why make the jump from sketches that you’ve been making for years now to something like a TV show? – While we love making those
So True Y’all sketches. – And have no plans to stop anytime soon. – We have ideas just like this one that can’t fit into a three
to five minute sketch. – We read your comments on those sketches. We know how much y’all wanna see us and our brand of humor on TV and we’re ready to do that. – We’re talking about making
something four times bigger than our longest sketch to date and that’s why we need
your help to make this. – And how exactly can
the audience help make this TV show happen? – It’s simple Howard. Just two words, Kickstarter.
– I think it’s one word. – One word Howard, Kickstarter. – We’ve listed this project on Kickstarter so that you, our fans,
can show your support and help us get this
project off the ground. – So you need money? – Yes we do.
– Yeah. It’s not cheap making a TV show. We’re gonna require more resources like equipment and staff. – And a set. You know, somewhere to
actually shot this thing. – Yeah, look at this. – What are you doing? – Don’t break that. – [Luke] Look at that,
we’re in a warehouse. Hey Talia, hey Howard.
How’s it going? (light music) – See?
We need a studio. Usually we just shoot at my parents house. – Actually your mom makes amazing cookies and I’m not sure if I’m
ready to give that up yet. – Me either.
– No. – So the best way for people to get an It’s A Southern Thing TV show is to make a pledge to your Kickstarter? – Yup, we even set up
multiple pledge levels so you can give as little as one dollar and show your support. – Yeah, but the more money you give the more stuff you’ll get. – For $10 you can get a
digital download of the pilot and you can watch it whenever you want. – But for $25 you’ll get a
poster and that digital download. For $50 you’ll get a t-shirt, a poster and that digital download. For seven– – Or you can skip to our
highest tier which is $5,000 which will get you an
all expenses paid trip to Birmingham to visit
us on the set of the show where you’ll be a featured extra. – And you’ll have dinner with
all of us at the wrap party. – Transportation and lodging included. – But you must live within
the continental United States. Sorry Alaska and Hawaii. – If I’m being completely
honest with you gentlemen this project sounds incredible. – I agree. But I do have one more question. How can people learn
more about this project? – You can read all about our show idea why we wanna make it and all
of the available pledge tiers on our Kickstarter page. – We go into a lot more detail there so please check it out if you’re interesting
in backing our project. – I think I speak for everyone
at It’s A Southern Thing when I say thank you. Everything we’ve accomplished so far would not have been possible without you. – We really are excited
about making this new show and we hope you are too. – I will be as long as I’m in it. – That’s it for us. Thank you for watching. We’ll see you tomorrow night. – I was not kidding. I better be in it. – Yeah, that would be great. Maybe we could get a new studio. – Right?
That would be awesome. Watch out for that piece. – There’s nails in that chair, wow. I’ll get this one. You get that one? Put this on the side. I think I dropped my microphone. – Can we just put this in the corner? – [Talia] I dropped my script. – I’ll get it, I’ll get it. It was just two pages. – [Talia] Two?
Mine was six. – [Howard] I had more lines than you?
