FLIP MY LIFE
Flip My Life is a 10-episode web series centered around the renovation of an abandoned house in Memphis, TN, for use as a transition home for men returning from prison. The show follows the renovation and profiles individuals who will be living in the house, as they learn construction skills while helping the show hosts renovate it. The hosts are 64-year old newlyweds who married exactly 50 years after meeting and retired to use their life experiences - one as a contractor turned bank robber - the other as a TV newscaster - to help others. The show is part renovation, part restorative justice and part romance: navigating renovation perils, funding challenges and married life in a camper.

While formerly excelling as a lawyer, she is fraying at the edges trying to uphold society's expectations of motherhood.
Enter, Dick Bunny, a rude, Beatrix Potter-esque, man-rabbit, who has escaped his storybook reality only to find himself in the middle of another Hellscape--LA mom culture. He finds the demands placed on moms to be utter Bullocks and ultimately teaches Max to be herself.
