Fund This: ‘Help Wanted’ Explores Generational Gap With Help From Jim O’Heir Of ‘Parks And Rec’

Project Name: Help Wanted

Asking For: $15,500 through Seed & Spark

Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $3,115

Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 24

Description: In recent years, the generational gap between Baby Boomers and Millennials has come into focus, leading to frequent disagreements between the two cohorts. Sometimes, the extremes of America's two largest generations are forced to work together, and that is the premise that will form the basis of Patrick Hackett's new project Help Wanted.

Help Wanted stars Jim O'Heir, best known for playing the lovable loser Jerry on Parks and Recreation, as a Boomer who finds his skills depreciated in the workforce. With nowhere else to turn, he has no option other than to link up with a Millennial who is attempting to launch a startup out of his parents' house. Through that setup, Hackett and his team will be able to explore the relationship between old and young. "Today’s seniors and millennials are both experiencing “What now?” moments," the project's campaign page reads. "Both are in stages of uncertainty and transition."

Hackett provides more details in his pitch video:

Creator Bio: Hackett is based in Denver. He previously served as the co-producer of Actor Martinez, a work of meta-fiction that earned some film festival appearances.

Best Perk: The $500 perk is expensive but exciting, as it excludes a backstage tour of the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre. If you ask nicely, maybe you can even etch your name into the rock.

Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon, Constance Wu & More Discover ‘Alternative Constitution’ For Funny or Die — Watch
Divergent” star Shailene Woodley is comfortable in fictional dystopian societies, not so much with the potential collapse of American democracy as we know it. In a new video released by Funny or Die, Woodley joins other A-listers who share her concerns about the “alternative constitution” that seems to have found its way into Donald Trump’s tiny hands. And Susan Sarandon, Constance Wu, Amber Heard, and Lizzy Caplan and many more are there to back her up.

As Woodley says in her introduction, the video is a response to the so-called “Muslim Ban,” Trump’s executive order barring citizens of seven primarily Muslim countries from entering the United States. With people tripping over themselves wondering if the ban is constitutional, Woodley and the gang have found the answer: “Historians have confirmed the existence of another constitution,

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' checks back on Terry and the rest of the squad

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' checks back on Terry and the rest of the squad
A review of tonight's Brooklyn Nine-Nine coming up just as soon as someone beats The Newlywed Game... After last week's episode focused entirely on Jake and Holt's time in Florida exile, part 2 of "Coral Palms" catches us up with the rest of the squad. The other detectives from the Nine-Nine have been through their own changes, like Boyle adopting a four-year-old son from Latvia named Nikolaj, but the biggest change by far was the arrival of Ken Marino (a The State reunion with Joe Lo Truglio!) as the latest interim captain, Jason Stenley. On the one hand, Stenley's incompetence in such a high-level job stretches even this show's boundaries of credibility, to the point where Boyle has to point out how little sense Stenley's promotion makes. On the other, Stenley's purpose in the episode is mainly to to get Santiago fighting with the rest of the squad over their acceptance

Review: A 'Veep' Thanksgiving gives us a wonderful Jonah-related gift

  • Hitfix
A quick review of last night's Veep coming up just as soon as I have a bachelor's degree in hotel management from Cornell... "Thanksgiving" wasn't a single character tour de force like "Mother" last week, but it did an excellent job of spreading the wealth among all the characters, putting them into unexpected situations and seeing how they respond. For instance, I was, like Ben and Kent, very pleasantly surprised to see VP Doyle turn out to be so good at filling in for Selina while she was suffering the hideous physical side effects of her "debagging" procedure. The most amusing of these fish-out-of-water situations in present day was Dan realizing to his horror that he had become the Gary to Tom James, with that perfect shot of the two body men facing each other with trays in their hands. But that subplot also set up one of those occasional

Watch: 'Parks and Recreation' Team Says Goodbye and Sings 'Li'l Sebastian' on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'

Watch: 'Parks and Recreation' Team Says Goodbye and Sings 'Li'l Sebastian' on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'
Last night, following the series finale of NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Jim O'Heir, Jon Glaser and co-creator Mike Schur appeared on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" to share stories about filming the finale, and to sing viewers out. The "Parks" crew revealed to Seth Meyers who the biggest crybaby was during the last day of filming, as well as what it was like starting out on the show. The cast also shares some of the ideas they pitched regarding the finale, including Chris Pratt's hilariously dark suggestion that the show should end like "Six Feet Under," where you see how all of the characters die. There was also some inappropriate kissing and singing... Lots of singing. Watch the cast and crew of "Parks and Rec" talk to Seth Meyers about the finale below: Read More: 'Parks and Recreation

There Was a Shocking "Parks & Recreation" Hookup After Series Finale -- Watch Video!

  • TooFab
Andy better shield his eyes ... The cast of "Parks & Recreation" reunited on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on Tuesday, following the series finale of the beloved NBC show. And, knowing we were all in need of some laughs after the show ended its run with an emotional, hour-long episode, Leslie Knope and Co. didn't disappoint. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman, Retta, Aziz Ansari, Jim O'Heir and co-creator Michael Schur led the studio audience on Meyers' show in a riveting rendition of "Bye, Bye 'Lil Sebastian" -- and two costars couldn't keep their hands (or tongues!) off each other. Plaza and O'Heir randomly started going at it as the rest of the cast sang, the two playing a serious game of tonsil hockey to the shock of everyone on stage. "I can't look at it, I can't watch. Oh My God," Retta exclaimed as it went down.

'Parks and Rec' Stars Bid Farewell with 'Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian' Singalong
Leslie Knope and the gang showed up on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to celebrate the bittersweet Parks and Recreation series finale.

Led by Mouse Rat frontman Chris Pratt, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir, Mike Schur and Jon Glaser ended the evening by singing a beloved Pawnee tune, "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian."

Holding up lighters during the singalong, Aubrey and Jim, a.k.a. April Ludgate and Jerry Gergich, started to simulate making out to the surprise of their co-stars.

The Parks and Rec cast also sat down with Seth to chat about how they thought the series should have ended. "I pitched that I would have sex with Joe Manganiello," Retta, who plays Donna Meagle on the NBC sitcom, joked (sorta).

Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them.
