Single Blonde Failure – A New Comedy Webseries: An aspiring social media star tries to live a Gwyneth Paltrow life on an Orphan Annie budget

Single Blonde Failure – A New Comedy Webseries

An aspiring social media star tries to live a Gwyneth Paltrow life on an Orphan Annie budget.

We’re all a little guilty of doing some self-editing on social media. We post the best, and crop out the rest. Our new webseries follows aspiring social media star Carly Hanson (30, Gwyneth Paltrow taste, Orphan Annie budget) as she takes “fake it til you make it” from mantra to job description. The series pulls back the curtain on all the effort it takes to maintain an effortlessly chic image online and all the ingenuity and indignity Carly needs to succeed in the age of the influencer.

Short Summary

Hi, we’re Bobby and Carly. We’re writers, comedians, performers, narcissists and social media junkies. We’ve spent hours poring over photos of latte art, feeling FOMO at globetrotting Snapchats and live-tweeting several nervous breakdowns. We love social media, even if it’s killing us.

We’re all a little guilty of doing some self-editing on social media. We post the best, and crop out the rest. Our new webseries Single Blonde Failure follows aspiring social media star Carly Hanson (30, Gwyneth Paltrow taste, Orphan Annie budget) as she takes “fake it til you make it” from mantra to job description.  The series pulls back the curtain on all the effort it takes to maintain an effortlessly chic image online and all the ingenuity and indignity Carly needs to  succeed in the age of the influencer. 

What We Need & What You Get

We are asking for $14,800  to make this webseries a reality. The funds we raise will go toward to paying our top-notch crew of industry professionals, getting all the props we need and post-production. We are cutting corners and asking for favors wherever we can, but we need these funds to  make sure we fully finish an excellent webseries that looks amazing. We’re looking to film eight, three-minute episodes for our first season.

In return for your help, you not only get our sincere gratitude, but you also get some really fun, unique perks, like personalized social media shout-outs, custom videos, exclusive looks at the series before anyone else, and more!

Who We Are

Single Blonde Failure is co-created and co-written by Carly Ann Filbin and Bobby Hankinson. Carly, who also stars in the series, is the host of Let Me Break You Up: A Live Anti-Dating Game Show, a member of one of UCB’s house improv teams and field correspondent for Cosmopolitan. Bobby is a writer, comedian and storyteller. He hosts and produces the monthly LGBTQ showcase Kweendom, a TimeOut NY and New York Times Critics’ Pick, and he’s a pop-culture columnist for leading LGBTQ website Towleroad.com.

Between Bobby’s experience working with influencers at a former job and Carly’s experience as a broke single blonde in the city, we’ve created a hilarious new webseries that’s part Silicon Valley and part Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Together we wrote a television pilot inspired by the same concept as Single Blonde Failure which made it to the next round in both Seriesfest and the Sundance Episodic Storytelling festivals.

We want this webseries to look as good as anything you’d see on TV. So we’ve assembled an incredible team to help us bring Single Blonde Failure to life. Our director, Kate Riley, is a UCB veteran and has written and starred in MTV’s Two Guys Named Josh. She’s also worked with Comedy Central, National Geographic, The Colbert Report and others. Our Director of Photography, Arlen Konopaki, has filmed other incredibly good-looking webseries, like The Other Kennedys, and his work has been featured on Huffington Post, IFC.com, Splitsider and more. Their expertise has been and will continue to be indispensable as we produce Single Blonde Failure as successfully as possible.

Other Ways You Can Help

Look, we know what it’s like to be broke. (That’s why we’re asking for your help.) If you can’t afford to contribute, we still love you. We just love you a little less.

You can still win back our favor by sharing our Indiegogo on your social media and telling your friends!
