Don't know about y'all, but we're ready for a comedy series about the South that tells our story in an authentic Southern way. We're looking to YOU to help us raise $13,000 to produce a 6 episode web series of The Bar so we can pitch to tv networks and original programming, such as Netflix or Amazon. It'll be fun, y'all! Be a part of the journey from the beginning!

WHO ARE WE, YA ASK?

We are four gals, originally from the South, who met while working creatively on different projects in Los Angeles. Each of us moved out here independently, with a singular vision: TO WORK. 

Did you know that creating your own projects is an even better way TO WORK? 

Because it is. And that's what we are doing here, with your help! We've written, produced, and acted in the first project by our production company, BLESS HER HEART PRODUCTIONS. It's like Cheers with tailgating…..

AND THIS IS US:

Nancy Minkler Creator/Executive Producer/Actor

Heidi Brook Myers Executive Producer/Actor  

Bonnie Hallman Head Writer/Show-runner

Jennifer Blake Producer/Actor
