Sitcom to be shot at working Florida sanctuary will blur the lines between scripted, reality, and documentary genres

We’re going to film this scripted show while navigating the unpredictable, genuine moments of being jumped on, bleated at, nuzzled, pecked – keeping improv & honesty at the core of the hilarity.”

— Felicia Greenfield

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Get ready for levity with a side of empathy as Little Bear Sanctuary, home to over 200 rescued farm animals, takes eco-consciousness to preposterous places with their sitcom pilot Friends not Food. They’re flipping stereotypes and blending comedy, improv, animal rescue, and ethical living in a seminal show.

In an era where seemingly shallow programs inundate the airwaves, and where veganism is little more than joke fodder, Little Bear Sanctuary and Right Pit Productions, a NYC-based production team helmed by LBS board member Felicia Greenfield, are looking to do something novel. One feature that sets this project apart is its extreme commitment to animal welfare. None of the residents will be ‘used’ or forced to do anything – as ethical vegans will tell you that they don’t commodify sentient beings. “We’re going to lean into this challenge and turn it into an opportunity,” says Greenfield. “Since our small production team will not be unlike the daily visitors that the residents are used to, we’re going to film this scripted show while navigating the unpredictable, genuine moments of being jumped on, bleated at, nuzzled, and pecked – keeping improvisation & honesty at the core of the hilarity.”

Writer/director Peter Stray hails from Wales, which naturally gives this comedy a bit of an ‘Office’ vibe. Notably, Stray isn’t vegan, adding a universal appeal even for meat-eaters and leather enthusiasts.

Today, Little Bear Sanctuary and Right Pit Productions are launching a joint Indiegogo campaign to fund this unprecedented project, set to begin principal photography in four weeks. Donor perks will be updated bi-weekly, and currently include opportunities to give a resident a character name for the show, receive an Associate Producer title, and enjoy a weekend stay at Little Bear Sanctuary’s bed & breakfast.
