This web series revolves around a successful stand-up comedian who is wallowing in self-loathing following the release of his commercially popular stand-up comedy concert film. He’s mostly upset over the breakup of his long-time girlfriend -the love of his life- as he puts it but as we’ll find out it’s his whole world that’s getting to him. It’s funny, poignant and realistic in the vein of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
The show’s themes are about ambition and idealism, ethics and consequences. At its heart, it is a show about an entertainment obsessed America.
[SARA][CAUCASIAN] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 22-26]
Sarcastic and capricious but ultimately good-hearted, Sara is a very smart girl with a wicked sense of humor. A successful published romantic novelist, who is equally able to debate quantum theory or post-impressionism, yet is as romantic at heart as the characters that she writes about. She can seem lazy, but tell her something is impossible and she’ll find a way to prove you wrong.
[ASHLEY][AFRICAN AMERICAN or BIRACIAL] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Ashley is a powerful Hollywood player who comes to Chicago for one reason, to prepare her client for the next level of entertainment offers. Ashley has used her intelligence and bravado to successfully negotiate on behalf several of the country’s most respected celebrities but also counsels in crisis management, public relations and crisis communications. Her unparalleled ability to remain not only calm and clear headed in such tabloid ready matters but to also monetize them have won her the loyalty of clients around the world.
