Project of the Day: Craig the Genie

May 28th - via: blog.indiereign.com
IndieReign's crowdfunding project of the day today is Craig the Genie, an episodic comedy series written by Brandon Blanks and Jordan P. Kelley. While Craig may have a genie’s magic powers, his wherewithal and general inability to use his magic properly causes problems for himself, Pat, and their other happy-go-lucky roommate, Googol (Andrew James Parkhill). Craig’s antics inadvertently help and hinder Pat’s attempts to get his life together, creating the push and pull that drives the series. It’s one part Workaholics, one part Wilfred, and just a dash of National Treasure.” (Read More)
