There are many issues associated with organ donation and transplantation. These issues span from political to financial, from spiritual to moral. Because healthy organs continue to be buried every day and the need for those organs is enormous, these issues have to be addressed. Gifted-The Docuseries will tell the complete and accurate stories of both tragedy and victory to encourage a nationwide social discussion.
We’re proud to partner with The Maddog Strong Foundation for our fundraising efforts in support of Gifted–The Docuseries. The Maddog Strong Foundation is a public 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization created in honor of Maddie “Maddog” Grobmeier who passed away unexpectedly from an asthma attack the day after her 18th birthday. Maddie inspired many by donating her organs and tissues so that others could live on to do amazing things for the world.
The trailer will introduce sponsors and contributors to the project. The trailer is fully funded and was completed in July 2021.
We are currently seeking funding to produce a full episode pilot which will be developed, tested and used to shop the Gifted Docuseries to streaming services and networks.
We are also seeking funding to produce the full season after the series is picked up. A full five-episode season will be developed and released.
