Synopsis

Rachel, in a ‘Mom approved’ choice, spent the last 8 years becoming an optometrist. When she realizes her passion is comedy, she tries to break into the stand-up comedy scene. While trying to juggle her day job, her aspirations as a comedian, and her new boyfriend, Rachel is determined to figure out who she really is. She decides to tackle her overbearing mother's advice head-on, one at a time, with hilarious results. HINDSIGHT follows Rachel's journey to reach the dizzying heights of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Along the way we encounter a heckler determined to mould Rachel into a better comedian, suspicious dealings with a Hutterite and the inappropriate dropping of a contact lens.

    Could be cute. Sweet and endearing character. Reminds me of the Mindy Project but much more understated.

    Wow, what an original idea! And Rachel, nothing's wrong with wearing a slip. :-) I hope there won't be hyperventilating throughout the whole first season! Hahahaha!

    Not offensive like some. Not many laughs. The girl character is cute but it moves too slow to be funny.

    Parts of the trailer really worked for me, others not so much. Think this has potential though!

    Seems like you've got a concept you can grow with here... but I think there's room for more funny.

    I really like the concept of Mother's Advice, very original. I like Rachel's vibe.
    I would like to find out more about her. I like that Rachel is following her
    passion.
