A crowdfunding campaign to produce a
fourth season of the gay murder mystery web series Where The Bears
Are launched on Monday.
In its first day, the
campaign attracted 149 backers who donated more than $16,000
toward the campaign's $150,000 goal.
The comedy series, which combines a
murder mystery plot and lots of large furry men, centers around
roommates Reggie (played by Rick Copp), Wood (Joe Dietl) and Nelson
(Ben Zook) and Nelson's boyfriend Hot Toddy (Ian Parks).
The show's third season ended with Todd
planning to propose marriage to Nelson.
In their Kickstarter campaign,
producers describe the upcoming season as thrusting the gang “into
yet another thrilling murder mystery surrounding the upcoming
nuptials of everyone's favorite bear couple, Nelson and Todd!”
“At the same time, Reggie's true
crime TV show becomes a hit on the Inquisitive Channel and sparks
begin to fly because of his new co-stars Det. Chad Winters and
Captain Coley. Meanwhile, Wood decides to start his own swimwear
line called 'Sporting Wood' with sidekick George Ridgemont which
provides them the opportunity to audition, dress and photograph hot
bear models for a living!” the description continues.
Campaign rewards include walk-on and
guest roles in the fourth season.
