In this six-part “branded content sitcom” artist and comedian Casey Jane Ellison sends up internet-era advertising methods, including cliché fashion film tropes, the slick salesmanship of advertorial, and the inherent awkwardness of product placement. Nothing is sacred here. The series, written and directed by Casey, follows an unhinged yet resourceful young woman in the aftermath of being fired, as she struggles to scrape enough money together before rent’s due. Featuring Casey herself plus an all-star cast of alternative art & fashion VIPs like Peggy Noland, Leilah Weinraub, and Jonny Makeup. You can see Casey’s previous series, What The Fashion, here.
