Inexplicably, Ellie’s character becomes the most popular character on the show, and the scripts are rewritten to exploit her popularity. The newfound success begins to go to Ellie’s head.
Her forty-something mother, Maria, recognises the dangers early, and battles to keep Ellie grounded, and their small family together.
This is when a documentary team decide to make a documentary series about Ellie, charting the trappings of child stardom.
Alternating between straight narrative and documentary-like interviews, Little Diva Rising is a mockumentary satire about success, family, and the darker desires in life.
We’ve shot the pilot, and are now pursuing avenues for funding to eventually film the rest.
