It is a truth universally acknowledged…..
“Anglophile": One who has an insatiable appetite or obsession for England, its history, its people, its pop culture…basically all things English. For some it’s hard to live in the reality of their Non-English world…choosing instead to lose themselves in an existence befitting a Merchant/Ivory film…”
Prince Charlie’s Angels…Stories from the Anglo-Files
With the world’s spotlight shined on the recent fairy tale Royal Wedding of Prince Charles', and the late Princess Diana's, eldest son Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton....Anglomania is at an all time high! The Royal newlyweds enjoyed mass public adoration on a recent trip to America, Young women clamor for the latest Kate Middleton inspired fashions, Men admire style icon and sexy sports star, David Beckham, “Afternoon Tea” is the new “power lunch” and Anglophile-traditionalists trace the footsteps of Jane Austen's England with annual pilgrimages to Bath. Indeed, even last year's most acclaimed and awarded film hailed from England, "The King’s Speech" starring England's current national treasure, Colin Firth. While Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II prepares to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee...London readies itself for the onslaught of tourists bound for the 2012 Summer Olympics, a majority of whom...no doubt...will be American Anglophiles!
"Prince Charlie's Angels...Stories from the Anglo-Files" follows five American women…All self-proclaimed “Anglophiles”…in their quest to abandon their monotonous, overbooked lives in America and escape to England and emerge themselves in their secret passion...an Anglophile Obsession!...one largely inspired by Jane Austen novels, Merchant/Ivory Films, Colin Firth and English pop-culture!
It's “Real Housewives” meets “Bridget Jone’s Diary” or Sex and the City...In London!
Our Anglophiles will live together in a traditional London flat. They’ll be sent out on a variety of "experiences" meant to either fulfill their English fantasies…Like performing in the West End,attending Royal Acot or other "posh events", or exposing them to eye-opening realities! Will their “Merchant/Ivory” experience resemble the life of a society debutante….Or shall it be more akin to the life of the downstairs help?
For these dream-filled Anglophites…it may very well be “to the Manor born”. Or perhaps….a lesson learned that the grass is NOT always greener on the other side….Or is it?? Stay tuned....

Reality TV…with Class! And, an accent….
The Anglophiles Need Your Help!!
Please help us send the Anglophiles Cast and Crew to London to shoot this unique, exciting and timely piece! Join us on the journey and receive an "insiders sneak peek" as our Anglophile adventure unfolds! Anglophile experiences, high profile cameos and "surprise guests" have already been pre-arranged in London. (We will announce all exciting special guests once our project is funded and production dates have been confirmed) All UK participants are enthusiastic and ready to go! But time is of the essence as many of our "name" participants will be moving on to other projects and availability will change. Our goal is to shoot the Anglophiles in London in October...which is just around the corner! 100% of all contributions will go towards production costs: travel to London for cast and crew, London Flat for our Anglophiles and lodging for Production staff (Director, DP, Producers), meals, local production crew, post-production and marketing. If our goal is not reached within the allotted time period...we will CONTINUE fundraising, not only on Indie Go Go, but through private and corporate sponsors as well...until the project is fully funded! Your contribution to the Anglophile project WILL be used for this production! All contributers will receive regular updates on how the Anglophile project is progressing!
It is IMPORTANT to know that although our production costs are quite higher than the "goal amount" we have specified in this campaign, we have decided to aim for a lower amount to save having to pay higher commission fees. If we don't reach our 'stated goal' then we must pay a higher commission off of our profits...which means less going towards production. However, if we DO reach our stated goal (perfect world!) we are STILL able to continue accepting contributions, above and beyond that goal...until the campaign ends!! It’s a win-win situation!!
Prince Charlie's Angels...Stories from the Anglo-Files" is a unique and fresh approach to the 'reality' genre with it's classy dynamic, International flair and a subject matter that is as hot as today's headlines! There is nothing else like it on the market today and we hope to usher in a new generation of Anglophiles as we spread our Anglophile-enthusiasm with all our supporters and future viewers! Further "Anglophile" branding and marketing is currently being developed. Our supporters will continually receive updates and information on how to keep your participation alive within the Anglophile Organization!
