Coming March 24
I’m stoked to announce that Rom.Com, a new comedy created by Adam Ganser and me, will be coming to Cracked as the next project from Cracked Studios. For those who don’t remember or don’t feel like clicking on that link, Cracked Studios is this fairly ambitious idea we’re going to try out until our bosses stop us. We’re creating a new, three-episode, narrative miniseries every single month. If a show does well, which is to say if a lot of people like it, we’ll renew it for another mini “season” and keep doing so for as long as the audience wants us to. One show is about wizards, one is about super heroes, one is about space.
Rom.Com, a show centered on a bunch of people who work at a dating website, is about trying to make sense of dating and romance knowing everything we know about the science of romance. It’s about jokes, it’s about how ridiculous online dating can be, and it’s chiefly about using science to explain love. Applying a “head thing” to a “heart thing” and then getting mad if the results don’t add up. Trying to establish a connection despite being bad at communication and relying on logic to solve emotional problems. (It ended up being more personal than I’d anticipated.)
I got to co-create it with my director and faithful collaborator Adam Ganser. I got to give the very talented Michael Swaim a fun part to play. I got to cast the inimitable Kaitlin Large, an amazing talent and a childhood friend, as the lead and show her off to the whole internet. I haven’t been this excited about a project in a long time.I hope you all like it. It’ll be yours in a few weeks.
Anything with DOB, tho.
I think I’d enjoy this
