A ruthless socialite forms an environmental activist group of oddballs to get back at her conservative mayor ex-husband.
To make election season a little more difficult for her conservative ex-husband, socialite Lucy Huff assembles a team of green-minded individuals. There’s just one problem. All she can find are: a neurotic stay-at-home dad, an over the top substitute drama teacher, an overqualified co-op student who doesn’t want to be there, a burned-out environmentalist recovering from a nervous breakdown, and a misguided hyperactive high-schooler. Each week the ragtag team tackles one local environmental issue. Rivers. Let’s clean ‘em. Bees. We need more of those. The Enbridge Pipeline. Let’s stop whatever that is! As flawed as their tactics may be, they will do whatever it takes to protect the earth from forces of destruction. But who will protect the earth from them?
Introducing team "Green-ish", a group of award-winning writers, actors, and filmmakers who share a passion for storytelling. We understand the importance of having a broad range of talents working on a project. Check out our profiles for more info.
A substitute drama teacher having trouble finding work due to arts cuts. So devoted to performance art activism, Grace will demonstrate wherever there's an unsuspecting audience. She's pure sweetness but has been known to get vicious for her cause.
A high school student full of over-the-top idealism. Beyond Type-A and knee always bouncing, Erica goes to extreme measures to educate her peers about the environmental crisis. She is a notorious dabbler, over-organized and over-caffeinated.
A stay-at-home dad, Bradley recently became environmentally aware after realizing his baby will inherit the earth. He’s oblivious to the cause's intricacies, but wants to do his part. He’s also pretty stoked to get out of the house.
A former hippie activist who suffered a nervous breakdown. Sizemore is laid back, and cares less about composting and more about Monsanto. He rides his bike but drinks Starbucks. His therapist told him to seek out low-key environmental groups.
A First Nations co-op student, Curtis wants a placement in a “real” environmental organization. Or anything better than this group. He has a dry sense of humour and amuses himself by messing with the others. He is the “sharpest tool in this shed”.
A ruthless socialite who assembles a rag-tag environmental group. She’s heard rumours that going "green" might help a mayoral campaign against her conservative ex-husband. But she’s no protester; she’s in this for the photo op.
Although our characters won't tackle environmental issues effectively, that will not detract from the importance of the causes themselves. The issues will be real and well researched, and links to further information will be provided every episode.
The issues we bring up will be Vancouver focused. Although big problems like global warming will be addressed, we want to pay specific attention to the local side of things. Let's explore the issues that affect Vancouverites first and foremost.
Vancouver is arguably the most beautiful city in the world, and we want to showcase that beauty. The bulk of “Green-ish” will be set outside and display Vancouver's amazing natural surroundings, the bustling city, and its colourful cast of citizens.
Since "Green-ish" takes place primarily outside, we have access to an array of scene locations. And all the while we'll be showcasing the city of Vancouver.
Although filmed primarily outside, our characters will need to come in from the rain on occasion. Here is a pic from our boardroom location, where our activists will come up with all of their misguided plans to save the world.
Our team of misguided environmentalists need costumes as unique and surprising as they are. Hemp clothing, three-piece dress suits, sweatpants and heels. Our characters will look as vibrant and distinct as they sound.
While Green-ish has broad appeal, our primary target will be the key web series viewing demographic of men and women ages 16-34. Environmentally minded viewers will also be enticed by our show’s green focus.
The witty and character driven comedy of Green-ish will appeal to a wide audience. Teenagers, adults, seniors, why limit the laughs?
Our programming will have particularly strong appeal with local Vancouverites who will appreciate the green setting, and a wider Canadian demographic who will find the issues addressed relevant.
Team Green-ish's association and relationship with the UBC student body will enable us to use a variety of media outlets only available to alumni.
Each of our zany characters will take turns hijacking our social media platforms to share their contributions towards saving the planet! Be sure to check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram regularly to see them all!
We can't promise to go naked on Granville, but we will go the distance when it comes to getting our project some full-frontal publicity! These stunts will include guerilla-style public displays in areas sure to generate visibility for #Green-ish.
