NEXT GEN TV: WEBSERIES 2
There has never been a better time for emerging filmmakers (a.k.a .content providers), because of the opportunities provided by the Internet. In our second annual showcase of new webseries, we present an abundance of talent who have embraced comedy. Is this a response to the gloom and doom we have witnessed in the US over the last nine moths? We’ll let the moving images speak for themselves. However, we can guarantee two 90-minute blocks of pure escapism (and without commercial interruption!).
