Storyline

This hilarious comedy follows the misadventures of two disenchanted friends who are trying to chart a wayward course through the shark-infested waters of L.A. Ten-plus years after graduating from NYU Film School, best friends Jackie Woodman (played by Laura Kightlinger) and Tara Wentzel (Nicholle Tom) are still waiting for Hollywood to let them put their skills to use. Jackie and Tara refuse to quit, preferring to remain suspended in a solution of willfully-ignorant optimism, promiscuity and irresponsibility.

The awful terrible life of the un- and under-employed Hollywood screenwriter
18 August 2006 | by KeylimepieSee all my reviews

This is a very smart comedy made by - and for - Hollywood insiders. It has a bit of Entourage mixed with The Player about it. It's funny, but I don't know if it translates to a very wide audience. The main character, Jackie, is a screenwriter whose life is basically a huge disappointment to her, both in her career and her love life. The scripts, many written by Laura Kightlinger who also plays Jackie, have that edgy bitterness which is very true to the "biz", that some people may find funny (I do) and others just depressing. Jackie may also come across as an awful narcissist, but then Hollywood only works because of all the narcissists operating in concert to try and make movies and occasionally succeeding. Certain aspects of the show are just dead on. Jackie is in a constant struggle to define herself both professionally and spiritually (though she would never cop to that in a million years). Kightlinger is terrific. She has a Geena Davis thing going on which she spins her own way. I recommend this to all angry, desperate, bitter, lonely people. For us it's great. If you feel suicidal once or twice a week, try it and see if you like it.
