    I would like to see some conflicts that are not related to sexuality! Post-30 there has got to be more than men.

    A quintessential portrait of the post modem internet age and satirical foray on the stagnation of feminism in the 21st century in comedy and western culture at large. Either that, or it's just REALLY funny!

    I love the fact its about girl power!!! Nice to see that for a change. However, don't really get much about your own characters….and not sure you should be comparing yourself to Sex and the City (you are cutting all male audience out there)…or at least be more specific with where you are going with it. You are onto something here…good luck

    This is a concept with the potential for wide national appeal and a sustainable ongoing plot line. It also has potential for international sales. It appeals to both men and women, sometimes for different reasons, but it demonstrates a humor sophistication that is cleverly hidden under the brashness of the film making.

    Seems like it has been done before and I am not sure how much the video could appeal to women that are older than 30. I think maybe women who just hit 30 and over may relate to this but not majority of women who are older.

    Congrats Jess! The trailer looks great! Very proud of you guys. With experience as a producer myself, I know how hard it is to get things made and wear a number of hats on something in order to get it done. But you guys have put together something really funny and clever and relate-able with good writing and characters as well as talented actors to pull it off. All of the ingredient for a successful series. I'm excited to see you do something great with this. I want to see more!
