One of the newest trends in the Youtube community--one that I am heartily enthusiastic about--is turning classic novels into modern vlogs (examples: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Emma Approved, and Victoria Frankenstein, M.D.).
Now, Cinderella is getting this treatment, but with a new twist--it will be filmed in a reality television style. Now, when they say "reality tv", I have to assume that they don't mean Survivor or Say Yes to the Dress. But maybe they'll have the Prince Charming character hosting some Bachelor-esque competition? We shall see!
Perhaps most intriguing facet of the CINDY webseries is that it's being marketed as a dark comedy, similar to creator Larry Wilson's other projects (Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and The Little Vampire). For example, the fairy godmother has a drug problem and the "handsome prince" is old enough to be Cindy's dad.
Now, here's the catch: The series is currently in pre-production mode and still needs crowdfunding through Kickstarter, so if you want to see CINDY happen, go help support it before the Oct. 28 deadline: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/933708538/cindy . Time is quickly running out and they're currently only halfway to their goal, but I think we could make that change!

You can bet I'll be watching this project closely because of the high production quality and because I think it has the potential to be crazy popular. What do you think, fairy folk? Check out the trailer:
