Week #1 Show Teaser Sole Mates

Raven, a talented lady cobbler, arrives in St. John's broken down and worn out. She decides to mend her own life by opening a cobbler shop "Sole Mates". Her secret is that when she touches the shoes, she instantly connects with the owners soul.

Synopsis

Raven, a lady cobbler, has a unique gift - every shoe she touches, she becomes acutely aware of the owners soul.

She knows their hopes, fears and dirty little secrets. She creates ripples of chaos that force people to connect and communicate.

In this town filled with quirky jerks and whacky weirdos, she is in tune with their vulnerabilities and discovers the common truth - they all want to have a laugh and be loved.

She vows to restore the worn out, rejected and abandoned to their previously loved condition. She patches holes in rubbers, reinforces strap ons, and gives them back their kick.

Sole Mates will reinforce your heart and mend your sole - Or dye trying!

    I'm rating this one highly because the concept formula is unique, but made of elements that are already proven. It's bound to be both fresh and original, and it sure doesn't hurt to have a cast led by women who have already proven themselves in the comedy world. This looks like a very capable and worthy team who I'd definitely like to see more from.

    This feels like a kickstarter for a clairvoyant shop. I would invest if it were a shop but not for a show.

    I was expecting a touch more from this and was disappointed that all the video provided of the actual show was the still. Who is Raven? How does it operate? Will it have a 'Black Books' but with shoes vibe? The 'mends the sole' is a funny pun but can it really flesh out for a full 22-minute episode? Please show us more. I get that Raven can deduce and tell what a person is like from the wear and tear of the owner's shoes, but your second image and video make me wonder who Raven is and who these three women are. Are they going to be central to the show? Or are you just the producers? Overall, just a bit of a mess because I'm not sure what to think about the show (other than a woman will fix shoes and people), which is essentially conveyed in the pun alone. The extra video added nothing, sadly, but I want all the Newfoundland entries to do well so please post some show footage or concept work please.
