my very half-baked pitch for a hex girls animated series

Okay, so: The Hex Girls: Underworld Tour coming to Netflix in some manner of the distant future? Yeah? New dream? Is this why I’m trying to go to grad school? HELL YES.

First of all, maybe you don’t remember the greatest band of all time: THE HEX GIRLS. First debuting in Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost, they are rock and roll eco-goths who sing songs about loving the Earth with all their fire and they have names like Thorn, Dusk, and Luna.

As I posited to Tumblr the other day, am I gay because of the Hex Girls OR did I will the Hex Girls into existence with my dormant teenage gayness?

My pitch is for a 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo sort of structured series that sees the Hex Girls exclusively contracted to playing gigs for different ghouls and monsters. They’re too spooky for the human world, so they get, like, a vampire manager or something and then it’s just all MONSTER CONCERTS.

As the girls rise to stardom in the spookier pockets of the world, do they have to contend with what they might be leaving behind in the mortal realm? QUITE POSSIBLY. Are there mysteries to solve, leading to the occasional need to call in our pals from Mystery, Inc.? OH, HELL YEAH.

ARE THEY SUPER QUEER? YOU BET THEY ARE.

In the finale, they play prom/monster cotillion at Miss Grimwood’s FINISHING School for Ghouls and OH, SNAP IT’S THE TEAM FROM SCOOBY-DOO AND THE GHOUL SCHOOL AND ALL OF MY CROSSOVER DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE.

In conclusion, Netflix, please give me the financial support to make this project. I have written a lot of fanfiction as well as a full-length play about monster friends, so I think this is probably the only thing I’m qualified to do.

(Update: okay, this project might already be in development as of last year, BUT CARTOON NETWORK, YOU NEED ME IN THIS WRITERS’ ROOM.)

Thank you for your time and Happy Halloween!
