A Kickstarter page running through the end of August is seeking $100,000 to launch "Barry & Joe - The Animated Series," a crime-fighting animation starring the duo.

The post doesn't describe what format the final product would look like, but in the post Reed says he wants to produce a pilot episode starring Jordan Peele as Obama, Chris Pratt as Biden, and Hayden Planetarium director Neil DeGrasse Tyson as himself, serving as the crime-fighting team's guide.

Reid says the show is meant for people who "intensely miss" the 44th president and his vice president.

"[It's] an adult animated sci-fi sitcom. A parody of Quantum Leap and countless other 80's TV classics," Reid writes.

"Every episode will follow Barack and Joe as they leap into the past and change a part of history," he adds. "[It's for] people who miss Obama and Biden as much as we do."

"Anyone on the left side of the political spectrum who isn’t afraid to question everything they know about America."

The Kickstarter has a steep hill to climb to fund the pilot episode of the series, which Reid says will cost $100,000 for "storyboards, recording, animation and sound design."

Just $26,000 has been raised so far.
