LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Annoying, self-centered, intrusive, insensitive, psychotic people, we all know them. They're your neighbor, your boss, your hubby or your sister-in-law. Now "A Series of Unfortunate People" makes a comedy out of these special folks in our lives that demand our undivided attention. This new original web series launches today and airs every Monday for eight weeks.
The series creator, WorkingBug.com, a Los Angeles based digital production company, develops, produces and distributes original comedic programming. WorkingBug.com is airing "A Series of Unfortunate People" on DailyMotion, their exclusive partner and one of the largest Web video sites in the world.
"With current technology, we conceive, cast and shoot content at warp speed, then DailyMotion makes the transition to screen fast and seamless," says WorkingBug.com co-creator and series star Leyna Weber.
WorkingBug.com co-creator and director Annie Lukowski adds, "Finding such a robust partner allows us to share this series with everyone. We're all privy to these types of people in our lives, so it's only right that you have instant access to them on your screen, haunting you wherever you go."
Every episode runs a web-friendly five minutes of free comedy video. The series stars some surprising comedic talents, and ends May 2, 2011 with "Me Me Me". New Orleans Saint Darren Sharper takes a turn as one of the "Unfortunates," and veteran comedian Kym Whitley lights up the screen.
