Why Read It?

Sometimes there's nothing better than watching terrible people do terrible things in the name of comedy. Wonderfully diving into a pool filled with cynicism, selfishness, and manipulation, this cleverly drawn comedy not only offers some of the most creative use of insults we've ever read, but it does so via a set of surprisingly complex, yet hilariously biting leads. Deliciously navigating that fine line between apathetic and asshole, this series takes a page from shows like Veep or Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia and offers up a world where wit, intelligence, and sharp dialogue are on full display regardless of how likeable the characters. At its core, this hilariously addicting premise and skillfully crafted series will not only delve into the worlds of celebrity culture and millennial stagnation, but it will do so in such a way that fans will scream out for more.
