The winner of the audience award at NYTVF last year, Rob Michael Hugel’s I Hate Being Single reminds us of all what we already know: Being single sucks.
Hugel has a legit web series pedigree, as he directed and edited some of Broad City’s episodes before striking out to make his own cramped Brooklyn apartment web series. Thankfully, there’s more humor than pain in watching Hugel struggle through meeting women and trying to make ends meet. Rather than giving us the same old meet-cutes, Hugel gives us sympathetic bankers and Snuggie-averse hook-ups in one of the most original takes on single life on or off-line.
This is an awesome list of web series that includes idols and friends and collaborators alike. There’s still some great series who aren’t included but I’m really proud of the one’s who are too. Great to see the community grow together!

Broad City, High Maintenance, Waco Vally, Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, The Guild, Burning Love, Very Mary Kate, Ted and Gracie, Whole Day Down, Kicking Dan Out, Your Dad’s Friends, The Gimpy Life, Husbands, Sugarboy, F to 7th, and more!
