Can being broke be funny? The creators on a new web series, Newlywed & Broke think so – and they think you will too!
Newlywed and Broke is a comedy starring Reko Moreno and his finance Kat Castaneda, as Stan & Mia Miguelles, a couple dealing with life in show business and financial hardships. Moreno and Castaseda are also the show’s producers and writers. Moreno can be seen in the upcoming film, Bless Me Ultima and Castaseda, who is a former Marine, is working on writing a film about her life as a female marine.
In addition to the series, their website will feature weekly videos called, “Broke Tip Tuesdays”, which will give viewers money saving tips.
Saving money is what this site, Simply Saving is about and I’m excited to help spread the word about Newlywed & Broke. I remember what it was like when my husband & I got married – we didn’t have a lot of money back then so we furnished out apartment with hand-me-downs and used furniture. There was a lot of raman and macaroni and cheese dinners – but we survived and I think we’re better for it.
Their goal is to produce a TV quality web series, which will first air on their website. After there is an established market, they’ll pitch the show to major TV networks.
