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!
Check the article for links and reviews of all these awesome series! 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!
Tumblr and internet friends, exciting times are upon us. No, I didn’t magically turn into a Muppet. (that’d be pretty cool though)
First, have you seen I Hate Being Single Season 1 yet? It’s the web series I created about being a lonely dork in Williamsburg.
Do you like it or even love it? If you want to see more of the show, and think more people should know about the show, there’s a way to help get us some great attention!
You can help I Hate Being Single be nominated for a Streamy Award! The Streamy’s are a prestigious event honoring greatness in Web TV. Since web TV is what we do, and IMO we do it well, I’m asking for anyone and everyone’s help to get nominated in at least one category. I know, it’s the internet and it requires reading and words and clicking things, but please read on!
I’d be honored if you took a minute to make a nomination. And if you are up for it, there’s multiple categories. We will be going up against some BIG names and every nomination counts! We are a small show run by 1 person, from 1 computer in 1 apartment in Brooklyn NY. I don’t know why I always say “we” except that the show is based off my life, so I don’t want to confuse me, with the me from the show. That make sense? nope? ok NM.
Thanks so much please tell your friends if this is something that you enjoy!
