LIFE SUCKS IS THE FIRST CROWD FUNDED TELEVISION PROGRAM IN THE U.S.
CREATED BY BROOKLYN BASED PRODUCTION COMPANY, DINNER FOR ONE.
 
With $85,000 raised through a crowdfunding campaign on Mobcaster, and without any network backing, “Life Sucks” is a landmark in how television can be made. The show is a period piece, set in 2001, about the worst part of everyone’s life: Middle School. It is the first of its kind in many ways, from its unique funding process and production as well as its unique casting concept. The show's cast is comprised of actors in their twenties as well as true teenage actors, all playing middle school students.
 
Consisting of six 30-minute episodes, the series is an entirely independent production from Brooklyn-based sketch company Dinner for One. The original pilot was a finalist at the 2012 New York Television Festival in both the Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition and the Independent Pilot Competition. Life Sucks is not presently attached to any broadcaster or network. Production for its six episode season wrapped at the end of 2013 and the series is currently in the final stages of post-production.
 
Coming straight out of Boston’s Emerson College, Dinner for One arrived on the New York comedy scene with a bang. Their first forray into live sketch comedy consisted of a 10-month run as reigning Backyard Brawl champions at the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.  Since then they have performed to sold-out crowds at New York City Sketch Festival in 2012 and 2014, Chicago Sketch Festival in 2015, as well as producting and performing four different hour-long sketch shows at The People's Improv Theatre.  In addition, their web content has been featured on the front pages of FunnyorDie.com and Huffington Post Comedy, and has garnered over 100,000 views.
