Starting in May, IFC presents at least one great new web series per month made by a wide range of up and coming and established creative talent. Here is what we have in store for May.
WILFRED – If modern life has taught us anything, it’s that the domestic pet can have as many psychological hang-ups as its contemporary owner. Depression, anxiety, loneliness and fear of abandonment all lead to behavioral problems and an unstable home environment. WILFRED, the series, an in-depth portrait of such a pet ‘behaving badly’, features an owner, her new suitor and one not-so happy talking dog.
Wilfred the dog is the ultimate flawed character. Like David Brent in The Office, we are charmed by his arrogance and self-righteousness, his falsehoods and misguided passions. Insecure and manipulative, he will stop at nothing to win the love and affection he desires. Although his methods may sometimes be underhand, his innocence and purity of heart can never be questioned. Or can it?
Adam is your boy next door. He causes no trouble and trouble rarely comes his way. When Adam hooks-up with Sarah, he thinks all his Christmases have come at once.
Sarah is the ultimate package: attractive, intelligent, and with her own place. It all seems too good to be true… it is.
Sarah, like any modern single parent, is trying to create a stable life for herself and her “special little man”. Sarah has a long list of failed relationships, which have left her and Wilfred jaded. Neither want to see the other hurt again and Adam has walked into an emotional mine field. So how hard can it be to make friends with a dog? That depends on the situation… and the dog.
Wilfred is a hit cult series from Australia. IFC is the first to air this demented little gem in North America. Watch for the premiere on IFC.com in early May, with new episodes every weekday.
YOUNG AMERICAN BODIES – From filmmaker Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes The Stairs and the upcoming feature Nights and Weekends) comes a brand new season of his long-standing hit, the scripted web series Young American Bodies.
Young American Bodies is an candid, no holds barred look into the intersecting loves lives of six twenty-somethings in Chicago. It’s intimate and fearless in its scope, and not surprisingly, timely is relevance and importance.
Young American Bodies premiered with a bang on Nerve.com and now, in partnership with Nerve, IFC.com brings the world premiere of season three of this powerful narrative. Seasons one and two – 20 episodes in total – begin airing on IFC.com in mid-May, rolling out over the course of the month. In late May, IFC.com premiere’s season three, in twelve brand new episodes.
Watch for more news soon about more ingenious internet video content from IFC.com. We will be premiering a new web series every month all summer long (and beyond!)
