Entertainment Weekly names Backseat Bitches one of the 6 Online Comedy Series that Deserve to Be On TV
Couldn't be more excited that Backseat Bitches is on this list. Here is what they said about my dear party monsters:
Jinny and Mimi are vapid, vain, and seem to spend most of their time drinking booze out of bedazzled flasks in the back seat of Uber SUVs—but Backseat Bitches creators Melissa Hunter and Jessica Lowe pack their portrayal of social-media-addicted L.A. party girls with enough clever writing to keep their satire from being simply mean. Somehow, you’ll find yourself rooting for these two to get into Macauley Culkin’s birthday party, even if they’re not actually on the list. With backing by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels–via his production company Broadway Video’s web arm, Above Average–it seems likely that Hunter and Lowe will follow in Abbi and Ilana’s footsteps."
In dreams-coming-true news, I am one of 8 finalists for NBC Playground, which means I will be writing a producing a pilot for the network! The pilot will be judged by an advisory board, which includes Amy Poehler, Seth Myers, Maya Rudolph, Jason Bateman, Mindy Kaling, Mike Schur, Michael Shoemaker and more of my comedy heroes. More details to come, but for now I am working hard trying not to throw up.
Excited that my show Backseat Bitches has landed on LA Weekly's end-of-year list! Click the headline to see the full list and write-up!

LA Weekly wrote a great piece about my favorite monster club girls. It even made it into the *actual* newspaper which means my grandma will finally believe this is a real career!

One of my favorite sites wrote a wonderful post on Wednesday and interviewed me for the piece. Check it out!
"Hunter’s sardonic wit is frighteningly on point."
4 weeks after launching the series and my channel, I have 10,000 beautiful subscribers. That is just the best news. Thanks to everyone who subscribed! I subscribe to your awesomeness!
"If you ever felt like Girls could do with more references to undead grandparents and sleeping in a coffin, Adult Wednesday Addams is here to deliver." That's going on my resume/tombstone.
She's alive!! I'm proud to announce the launch of my series ADULT WEDNESDAY ADDAMS. The first episode is online. There will be new episodes every Wednesday until Halloween!
