Gail Kim, Lita, And Christy Hemme’s Kickstarter For ‘Kayfabe’ Falls Over $300,000 Short Of Goal
Bad news for those hoping for a new women’s wrestling promotion as Kayfabe didn’t come close to its initial Kickstarter goal.
The brain child of Gail Kim, Lita, and Christy Hemme, Kayfabe was looking to crowdfund $400,000 in order to make a pilot episode. That wasn’t the case as the campaign only raised $62,919. That leaves it over $300,000 away from the goal.
The show was supposed to be different from current offerings as it is half storytelling and half in-ring action. “It is an edgy, racy, cinematic television series about a female led professional wrestling start up. This show is a dramatization and collection of female stories inspired by real life events.”
Here’s some more on what the show would’ve been:
But, in this unique narrative, we take you behind the curtain, into the locker room and outside of the arena. So what does that even mean? What are you watching? Why are these stories worth a shit!?
Because we present them with no filter! You get drama, passion, humor, love, anger, frustration and real life challenges. Plus, we address the 800-pound elephant in the room, and in the current landscape of the world… abuse of power, manipulation, injury, addiction, inequality and the euphoric high of pursing your life’s passion that clouds every damn decision.
