Nannyhood - TV Show
Thanks so much for taking the time to view our page. We are 3 creatives trying to make our dream come true! Production of our first ever pilot is set to start filming in mid March.
Nannyhood is a 20-30 min episodic comedy about a twenty-something Jenna, who is a nanny to pay the bills. She has to juggle the hectic, last-minute schedule of an artist, all while trying to help raise children and not completely screw them up. With the help of her two childhood friends, Lindsay and Easton, (who are also nannies) they try to build their own artistic careers while trying to make ends meet and enjoying their 20s.
We are looking to raise $7,000 for cast, crew, location, production and post production. This will give us the capability to pay our actors (many of which are children) and our crew. Our crew is all professional and we would love to compensate them for their time. With your help we will be able to produce a quality pilot ready to be picked up.

A note from one of the creators, Jenna:
I got a nannying job on accident really. I was working at a restaurant I hated while trying to audition and none of it seemed to work. I was let go from one of the top agencies in Chicago because I couldn't figure out how to balance my time.When I was offered a part-time "nanny" job, I was at rock bottom and I figured this job paid more and I would have more flexibility.What ended up happening was... I became happier. I ended up being with him (real name Jax) more than I anticipated. It soon became apart of my job to teach this kid how to do math, how to write and how to read. My life started to have a little more purpose because I had a responsibility to make sure this kid didn't suck; not even in the intellectual department but more importantly in the human department. I wanted to make sure he was nice, polite, strong but sensitive.What ended up happening was he taught me a lot of life lessons along the way. I relearned the basics of being a human while trying to teach him! We would struggle together in different ways but support each other by just being there for one another. His family became my family and we became like brother and sister; which as you know does involve fighting! It was not all rainbow and sunshine.
The reason I started to write this was because I felt I needed to document the unique friendships that can develop between nanny and child.Although life is still hectic, he taught me that it is okay to still have fun and go with the flow. I have taught him that life is full of mistakes but to never give up or get down on yourself. He is apart of who I am now. I guess I needed to write this because after three years he is moving away from me. I just wanted to document my journey and ours together. I am a better actor because of him, a better family member, and a better friend.Also, if you were to meet Jax in real life, you would know that this kid is such a little character that it needs to be shared with the world!
Nannying is not just a job... It's a friendship.
Thank you for your time and for your support!
Lindsay, Jenna, and Easton
