Everyone’s a bit of a fixer upper, and nowhere is that truer than the hectic bustle of a big city. Kieran Turner’s web series Wallflowers dives into the bubbling soup of dysfunction that is dating, because if we can’t laugh at our collectively debilitating romantic neuroticism, what’s the point?
Set in the cruelly comedic dating world of NYC, Wallflowers details the ensemble exploits of a tight knit group of sassy, creative Gen-X stragglers coping with the ecstasy and the agony of single life — as members of a support group for the hopelessly single.
Sounds about right.
The series features lots of fantastically talented NYC stage actors, and in the age of digital media you’d be foolish to overlook some of the creative gold cropping up on the web.
We’re looking forward to the season 2 premier on April 3rd, which promises new gay love interests and more of the same awkward hilarity. Patch Darragh (Hope Springs, Mercy, Boardwalk Empire) and John Halbach (LOGO’s Eastsiders) are set to join the cast of oddballs and hopefully make us all feel a little better about our bumbling dating lives.
In the meantime you can check out a preview of the new season here.
