Positive stories about reconnecting front line service members with their communities
Hi everyone – My name is K.J Bradley, and I’m a US Army Veteran, entrepreneur, and podcaster. I am excited to share with you my concept for a TV mini-series called Behind the Uniform.
K.J. Bradley, Host
At a time when our nation feels divided and tragic events involving law enforcement have been a major part of the 24/7 news cycle, I think it's important that we also hear the positive stories about the change that is occurring between those in uniform and their communities.
With your help, I am going to launch two pilot episodes of Behind the Uniform that will illuminate the efforts our police, firemen, EMTs, and veterans are making to better their neighborhoods and themselves.
As a US Army Veteran, I know firsthand the stress and hardships associated with wearing the uniform and how most people don’t understand what we have seen or the trauma many of us have experienced. Our society will benefit from learning about the personal struggles of those in uniform and the extraordinary work many of them do enriching their communities through volunteerism, entrepreneurship, and small acts of kindness as both service members and citizens.
Your contributions will be used to cover the cost of partnering with an experienced production team that will ensure Behind the Uniform stories are well-produced and showcase the important interactions service members are having with local residents and community leaders to bring about meaningful change.
Behind the Uniform will be produced Legaceymg. Legaceymg is led by Mark Rottenberk, a marketing & production professional with 30 years of experience in developing brands, broadcasts, corporate videos, live events, e-learning, websites, print design, and social media strategies.

We have garnered interest from television networks such as PBS and local news stations in the southeast region where our initial filming will take place.
Filming will begin in Fall 2020 in Columbia, SC. The format will be a combination of sit down, motion, and public site recordings to include the guests’ family, friends, co-workers, and community members.
Upon successful completion and acceptance of the two pilot episodes by local television stations, we will film another 11 episodes to round out a full season. The season will include cities in South Carolina and North Carolina. Along with television, we will be building a following for Behind the Uniform on various social media and internet channels.
We anticipate expanding geographically in Season II to Southeastern states as well as the Midwest - Atlanta, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, etc where our program can make the greatest impact showing how trust is being rebuilt. We will move to the West Coast and additional Southern states in Season III.
Once again, we would greatly appreciate your support and donations to help us launch Behind the Uniform and tell the important stories about the positive change that is occurring between our nation’s frontline service members and their communities.
