We launched our Cops and Monsters: Uprising Pre-Production Kickstarter Campaign on January 30th, and within around 5 days we hit our goal of £1500. This means we can now:
- Pay our 6 writers including Debbie Moon (BAFTA winning Wolfblood creator), Simon Underwood (Wolfblood series 5), Philip Lawrence (Big Finish’s Doctor Who), James T Harding (Broadway Baby) Laura Anne Anderson (BAFTA winning CBeebies’ OOglies) and Fraser Coull (Cops and Monsters Showrunner, One Year Later)
- Pay for our brand new opening title sequence (draft version below)
- Pay for new opening title music
- Pay for our concept banner by Sophie Cowdrey
The campaign will end on the 28th of February and we’ve still got perks available. The more we raise past £1500 will go towards the production fund to shoot our 6 new episodes this year. If you’d like to get involved you can do so at this link.

We should be featured in the March 28th issue of SFX Magazine with information on the show and an interview from showrunner Fraser Coull. Prior to this we may run a Kickstarter campaign for the first episode of series 2. If we raise the funds to shoot the first new 20 minute episode (penned by Debbie Moon), then we hopefully will raise enough to shoot the following 5 episodes.
From March we will be contacting further businesses to sponsor the show. So far we are delighted that Geek clothing store Prophecy Girl have sponsored series 2.
In return for their sponsorship we will be featuring their clothes throughout series 2 and they will be credited as sponsors on the end of the first episode on Amazon Prime UK and US. If you’re interested in sponsoring us, please click this link. We are aiming to raise £30,000 to produce 6 x 20 minute episodes this year.
Our first episode, “The New Recruit” will be screening on the 25th of February at 3pm at MysticCon in America, with a trailer to preview the rest of series 1 which is currently on Amazon Prime.
All other Series 2 information will be found and updated at this link.
