Curvy Girls Rock: Web Series Launches Second Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

Creator of internationally acclaimed, My Story, writer Shakesha Williams has launched a second crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to support the production and filming of Curvy Girls Rock, a web series following the lives of five plus-size women living in New York City and their exploration on career, relationships, and love. Currently slated to begin filming Season 1 on April 29, 2017, the campaign seeks to raise $45,000 for the development and filming costs of the series.

Created and primarily led by women, Curvy Girls Rock is a fun and sexy ensemble series featuring a diverse and well-rounded cast that will bring a fresh perspective and rich storylines to the media landscape. Through its characters’ backgrounds in the arts, media, and business, the series also aspires to represent on screen the 67% of American plus-size women who have been long misrepresented and ignored by the media. Its unique approach to telling stories about plus-size women and issues surrounding body positivity and image will also be a catalyst to continue conversations surrounding these topics and beauty diversity.

We are truly excited about filming the first season on April 29,” said Curvy Girls Rock writer, Shakesha Williams. “We are counting on the support of our fans and followers to continuously bring these amazing stories to life and to show that women of all sizes are sexy, desirable, smart, and powerful.”
