A while back, I shared an interview with some of the people behind a sitcom called “Wassup en LA?”
As I mentioned before, the project is seeking funding via Kickstarter, an online platform by which you can make a pledge that only gets charged if they reach their fundraising goals.
Now, based on the comments on that last post, there’s something of a split among Babalu readers in terms of excitement about this project. So consider this an update on the project’s progress for all of you, and a link to a way to act for some of you.
The Wassup people are about halfway to their goal of $50,000. With Just a few days left, they have raised about $21,000.
So… if you’re into this project and would like to contribute, do so here.
For the sake of full disclosure, I’ll say that I did pledge $50 to this project. I don’t pretend to have read scripts or gotten to know all these people intimately. More than anything, I’m curious to see where this goes, and confident that — at the very lest — this group would put together a more faithful portrayal of Cubans and Cuban-Americans than anybody doing so now.
