Dating Rules From My Future Self Premieres - January 9, 2012
I always love hearing news about a web series getting going. Something good about where you can just launch it online and bypass the networks all together. Keep your control of it and you don't have to worry about the network suddenly just pulling the rug out from under you. The latest web series that is being buzzed about is "Dating Rules From My Future Self" and is produced by Alloy Entertainment. The show stars Shiri Appleby of Life Unexpected and Roswell fame. She plays 29 year old Lucy who finds herself about to take a huge step in her dating life and starts to get text messages from her future self. Her future self is ten years down the line. The texts are advice on things to do or not do to help her change her dating life. The show debuts today online and the first episode is already available. I really enjoyed it! A lot gets accomplished in just the first episode and with under ten minutes. The set up of the story is good. I like the casting and production of it. Shiri is great as always. I'm curious to see where the story goes from here. Clever way to tie the dating world into the technological world. I think this show hits on something that we all think about. What if we could go back and tell ourselves something that we learned along the way? What if you could prevent a mistake from happening? Especially in the dating world. Really impressed with it and I'm already a fan. You can get more info on the show at Facebook.com/DatingRules. Here is the video of the first episode.
