Eventually, streaming series and movies will begin to reflect the new normal. Characters wearing face masks with copious amounts of hand sanitizer, enduring countless zoom meetings. Jumping on the COVID-19 content ship early is the new web series: Work Without Pants.
Created by Jordan Bielsky, Iz Rubinstein and Jordan Ledy, Work Without Pants invites audiences into a zoom meeting. It's a work-from-home comedy series that follows an eccentric and closely knit marketing team at a fashion startup who must reevaluate their quarterly and personal goals during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Extremely relatable for those of us who have experienced plenty of awkward zoom moments, WWP features performances by Sharayu Mahale, Evan Ferrante, Alexis Toone, Jordan Bielsky, Lilly Lawrence, and Matthew Harris.
This is the third time Bielsky, Rubinstein and Ledy have collaborated together, most recently on Dr. Rabbi Moishe Dovid Bernstein - a web series about a Rabbi therapist and the narcissists that visit his office.
Bielsky is an actor and filmmaker most recently seen in Season 2 of Get Shorty on Epix. Rubinstein is a Los Angeles-based screenwriter and the Manager of the Episodic Program at the Sundance Institute. Ledy is a writer, director, and producer. His film It's Better In Italian, executive produced by Paul Feig, won Palm Springs International Shortfest's Best Student Documentary, Best Student Film, and Runner-Up for the Audience Award for Best Documentary.
The first three episodes of WWP will be released on July 1st, with the rest of the season being released throughout July 2020.
