Bwitches – The Series
About The Project
Bwitches is a comedy about two friends (who happen to be witches) navigating what it means to be young women in LA. You’ll see Maddie and Reese interact with their white males peers, you’ll see them get their periods at important networking events, you’ll see them quit day jobs that make them feel like scum, you’ll see them go on dates with men who don’t satisfy them, and you’ll see them hang out with other feminist witches, like them. You’ll also see some talking cats, floating objects, and lots of spells – lots and lots of spells.
Bwitches lives in the universe of our shared loves: we love women who are goofy, powerful, intelligent, neurotic and possibly deranged (think Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard). We love magic, spectacle, and good old-fashioned glamour. We love girl power and sisterhood. Martine loves cats. Johanna loves Alfred Hitchcock. We are inspired and tickled by shows like Bewitched and Broad City, movies like Dear White People and Spice World.
We began living together at the start of 2015. Admist the general domestic bliss that ensued, the idea for Bwitches was born. We wanted an artistic outlet to talk about the things that trouble, excite, and enrage us without taking ourselves too seriously in the process. We wanted to create a fantastical universe, the kind we made up as children, filtered through an adult lens. Witches can represent not only powerful women with unique gifts but also members of society who have been othered. We want to take seats at the digital media table and bring our own secret powers to light, all while doing a lot of laughing and singing and dancing…
