The Harmony Unleashed Saga: Bright + Butter is an upcoming romantic comedy-drama web television miniseries developed for MontalVue and Netflix by Aaron Montalvo, Stephen Levinson, and Joanna Lewis & Kristine Songco. It is the fourth live-action series from the Harmony Unleashed saga, the third to be for a streaming service, and the first to be on MontalVue.
It ties in with the Humanitarian storyline that intertwines with the Pony-Human Alliance and will connect to Harmony Unleashed: Humanitarian Brotherhood of Love and The Harmony Unleashed Saga: Rondo of Humanity. As the Apple Family's search for their parents resumes as they found out that they are still alive within the sources about how Pear Butter and Bright Mac became lovers and how the vacation flight led to them being lost on an island. Not to mention, the series will depict more moments of Pear and Mac's relationship that will add up to the character's development.
The series is executive produced by Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, as well as Applejack's voice actress Ashleigh Ball being an executive producer and Michelle McLaren is also the executive producer, as well as the series' director and showrunner. McLaren directs all episodes.
