Rich and the Ruthless

Actress Victoria Rowell is the latest celebrity to get on the Kickstarter bandwagon, launching a campaign for a soap opera spoof she’s developing.

Rowell hopes to raise $50,000 by Aug 28th to shoot a pilot for her soap opera satire, The Rich and The Ruthless, in which Rowell not only stars, but is also one of the writers.

The pilot will be directed by Carl Seaton (One Week), and, according to the description, will delve into “the soapalicous swirl but oh- so real, gritty reality of the soap opera biz; The world is filled with Executives, and Actors all doing WHATEVER it takes to keep the show on air, maintaining the excessive lifestyle THEY ALL have grown accustom to.

But reading the project's Kickstarter page, it’s pretty clear that Rowell understands how to use it to raise funds for a project. Unlike Spike Lee’s recent Kickstarter campaign, where it’s basically Give me money because I’m Spike, Rowell pitches the whole concept of the project, explains how the money will be used, and the production strategy behind the project.

We shall see if she’s successful.

Below is her video pitch.

    This looks project seems like it needs a director's delicate comic touch, of which Mr. Seaton's body of work had never impressed upon me. Perhaps he has grown as an artist.

    Just a tip: tone down the acting, please. The first minute of this is a little overbearing. Also, show me more of that rocking body Ms. Rowell has. I don't remember her being that buttery fine last time I saw her. Perhaps the presence of Vic's sweet, scantily-clad hourglass body will salve the imbalance in comic tone. Man, at least I sure do hope so-- Dat ass!

    It's great that she already has a network that has expressed interest in this.

    Robert Townsend can definitely help her on this, since he has delved into this type of show before. On a side note, based on the picture above I want to know her workout regimen. Her toned legs are the business.

    " On a side note, based on the picture above I want to know her workout regimen. Her toned legs are the business."

    Was thinking the same thing :-)

    Back to the topic: the premise for her film sounds okay, but to raise 50K through Kickstarter.... really? I'd assume that folks like her could pay that kind of money of pocket.
