I wanted to submit a new comedy web-series thats just launching tomorrow called So Awkward.
So Awkward follows Jeannie and Preston (played adorably by Consoli and Joseph), who are two peas in a pod clumsily trying to survive the perils of the modern dating scene while being thrown together in a variety of uncomfortable circumstances. They would be perfect for each other, if only they weren't so… Awkward.
It combines improv and quirky original characters with heartfelt and truthful performances. Its comedic tone resembles the deadpan wit of "The Office,” yet in contrast it’s cinematically inspired by the artistry of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s "Amelie", beautifully shot by AFI graduate Colin Oh. The series soundtrack is courtesy of Mobygratis.com & upcoming London band SHEEN. Starring writing/acting/directing team Tarah Consoli and Elliot Joseph. This is the debut production for the pair (based out of Los Angeles), who got their starts in the comedy/film and television scene in Canada and the U.K/New York respectively.
Start Date: November 5, 2013
Run Time: 5:00-7:00 minutes per episode
