Dear friends! Here’s one part of that exciting news we’ve been talking about – MZPtv is joining forces with our friends at Fiction Vortex to get behind a Kickstarter campaign to create an ongoing set of ‘serial boxes’, shared story worlds publishing weekly episodes across a variety of styles and genres.
We’ll let co-creator David Mark Brown start this off:
But why should I pledge to this?
Because this is an extension of what MZP has been doing for the last ten years. It’s no secret things need a shove around here to get the activity going again, and with others now starting on the ‘serial box’ bandwagon, it’s already lead to some inspiration towards rebuilding the blog website and forum to better serve the present day audience.
Plus, there are all manner of sweet stretch goals and backer rewards, not least of which is the potential for an MZPtv-branded serial box! We’re currently deciding on projects to pitch, but with so many amazing shows in MZP’s glorious back catalogue, there’s no end of possibilities here.
So, wait, is MZPtv closing or something?
All we’re doing is getting behind a new initiative, helping bring new content to our community and ultimately starting our own fresh drive of updates and new content right here on MZPtv. There are plenty of people out there who want to be told epic tales and sweeping stories of drama, mystery, fantasy and romance, and we are going to damn well stuff our story juices into their big, greedy mouths. Or something.
So let’s get behind this, guys – the Kickstarter is live now and runs until September 9th. Let’s see what we can create!
