Writer, Director, and Star of HelLA, Rory Uphold, manages to hilariously and succinctly portray what the day-to-day is like for a young woman trying to live her best life in Los Angeles. If you can’t wait for Broad City’s premiere in January and have a predilection for the left coast, I highly recommend this smart, quick, intensely amusing series.
Low Budget? Yes. But HILARIOUS AND SATISFYING too. Each episode of Low Budget Sketch show is five minutes long and contains a variety of sketches about the hardships of life. The show was created by Jorja Hudson in New York, alongside a collection of writers, performers and students from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Low Budget Sketch Show is built on a DIY attitude, a passion for sketch comedy and zero Kickstarters. Season 2 launches in January 2015, and you can expect a totally different structure than the first season!
For those of you who dabble in sci-fi, I’ve got just the series for you. Interrogation follows a fleet of interrogators in a world that creator Britain Valenti describes as 1984 meets V for Vendetta. The show is also one of the only web series I’ve seen that makes a point of using actors of differing ability and diverse backgrounds to tell the story. When asked what inspired the ass-kicking female show, Valenti explained, “It really came out of my desire to see sexy, competent and dangerous but fun and loud female characters. I’m a big fan of Archer, and while Lana is clearly the better, more skilled, more reliable agent. Archer has the most fun. . .all while magically being the best at what he does. I wanted to have female characters who could do the same thing.”
