The Concept

Emily is a young girl living in "The Saddest Town in the World". Every morning she wakes up and works all through the day, taking on countless thankless chores. Without her the town would probably wither up and die, as each and every townsperson are simply to sad to do anything themselves.

Each episode tells the tragic backstory of an individual townsperson, bookended by the over-arching story of how Emily's life of chore and toil came to change the town forever. Episode one "Betty" tells the story of Betty Scrubblepot, the town cleaner, a darkly comic Poe-esque fairytale of laundry, monstrous germs and a grumpy cat.

The series will utilise several different filmmaking methods, for example episode one will contain minatures, greenscreen, stop motion animation and traditional puppetry (all with live action actors).
