Debt Collectors 101: The FDCA

“It’s the first of the month, so you know what that means: time to pay your bills! We’re the creative team behind Debt Collectors, a new web series and parody of cop shows that follows the officers of the Federal Debt Collection Agency as they work to incarcerate debt offenders. Ladies of FunnyNotSlutty, don’t let this happen to you!”

The Chelsea Girl (1943) Episode One – Lucia Brizzi

It’s New York City, it’s 1943, and Lucia Brizzi is a thoroughly modern woman.

A lot of people ask me who Mike Toro, the mafia don of the series, is to my character. I describe him as a father/ husband and revel in the discomfort created by that confusion. After all, in the 1920’s who could tell the difference? [Read more...]

Ted and Gracie Save the Date – Jena Friedman


The Newark Times is doing an intimate portrait of couples planning their wedding during a recession:

“I’ve always been interested in serial killers, but could never wrap my head around the type of women who dated/married them… Ted Bundy got married while he was on trial and then proceeded to have a child with a woman who left him 8 years later…once she realized he was ‘guilty’. What I wouldn’t give to get inside her head! This series hopes to explore that…”
