The monetary contributions will assist in funding the remaining production and postproduction costs of the Frybread sitcom, which is scheduled for mid-March 2014. To view the pilot episode and to make a financial contribution, go to www.kickstarter.com and search "Frybread TV show."
The pilot TV episode of "Frybread" is sixty-percent completed and features several cast members from the movie "More Than Frybread."
The release of the pilot by Holt Hamilton Productions could very well be the first TV series based on Native American sitcom. The original movie released in 2012 was screened in more than fifty reservations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The series takes off with the World Wide Frybread Association, founded in 2005, in peril with bankruptcy and litigation nipping at its heels. Donathan Littlehair, who is naturally thin on top, conjures up a means to save the organization with the aid of humorous and colorful characters from various Native American tribes.
Producer, Travis Holt Hamilton, has completed five films that encompass comedy and drama with a Native American slant.
"I want Native country to collaborate with me in delivering positive content to a starving Native audience that is tired of Hollywood's control on how the world should view Native American imagery," Hamilton said.
The goal of the pilot episode is to establish Season #1 that will consist of 13 episodes. Holt Hamilton Productions foresees filming the series in various tribal communities that will aid in opening doors for aspiring actors and technical staff of Native American heritage.
