Brand New comedy web series pokes fun at the horrors of dating.
“IT’S NOT YOU…” now fully available online.
WHAT IT TAKES PRODUCTIONS is excited to announce its very first production, IT’S NOT YOU… now fully available online.
It’s Not You... is a web comedy consisting of 7 self-contained episodes.
It navigates the stories of Laura and Julia, 2 flatmates with a talent for attracting the sleaziest chat up lines and the worst dates.
Each 3-minute episode showcases another example of ‘how not to do it’, as both girls return home to share the details of their disastrous evening.
If you ever thought “This sort of thing only happens to me”, you’ll see you are not alone.
The show was created by actress Cristina Lark, and it is, ehm… completely fictional.
This is not a cute show about tips on dating or how to get a boyfriend, but it’s not a feminist statement either. In-between these extremes, the show just shares the humour of situations that more than a few girls who’ve socialised enough have lived”.
Joining Cristina in this webseries is a wealth of upcoming international acting talent.
Playing the role of Julia, Laura (Lark)’s flatmate is Anna Elena Pepe, whose most recent acting credits include a participation in the online hit A Very European Breakup.
The cast also includes Craig Daniel Adams (Hollyoaks, The Bloody Mary Show), Alex Roseman (A Very European Breakup), Patrick Oldham (Persona), William Alexander (Erin Simpson Show – Television New Zealand), among others.
