Wide Open is a comedy anthology series following artists exploring alternative relationships. Each episode features a new character or set of characters — in the style of High Maintenance — and a showcase of art. Production is underway in Chicago.
She’s Out Of Order
She’s Out of Order follows a complicated black woman trying to keep it cute in spite of life’s little catastrophes. The scripted comedy web series is based on a character created and performed by Teresa Michelle Lasley and features an ensemble cast. I served as co-producer, assistant director and designer (logo, website). This project was partially produced with funds from the University of Pennsylvania and Northwestern University as part of my dissertation and book projects. The series was an official selection of the 2015 LA Web Fest, one of the longest-running independent television festivals, with creator Teresa Lasley nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and LaJune Grant nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress.
