Amy York Rubin and Awkward Black Girl creator and executive producer Issa Rae debuted the web series “Little Horribles” this week. The first episode titled “Sexual Activity” explores the world of Amy as she makes less than stellar dating decisions and suffers through painfully awkward, yet hilarious, moments after she has sex with someone new. The web series has been dubbed “Lesbian Girls,” because of these all-too real-scenes and the unpolished dialogue.
Check out the first episode below (Warning: Video is (mildly) NSFW):
Written and created by Amy York Rubin, “Little Horribles” is a darkly comedic web series following the poor decisions of a self-indulgent lesbian. The series chronicles all those things that really aren’t that big of a deal and follows Amy as she navigates her thirties in Los Angeles. Hailed as the “Lesbian ‘Girls’” (by some lesbians in Silverlake) the show rips apart and laughs in the face of those painfully uncomfortable moments that no one wants to remember, but everyone does.
The show’s unique voice is what attracted so many talented people to get involved early on. The first six episodes feature Cynthia Stevenson (The Player, Dead Like Me, Happiness), Issa Rae (hit web series “Awkward Black Girl”) and a slew of UCB alum, including Ilana Glazer (currently appearing on the Amy Poehler produced show Broad City on Comedy Central), Echo Kellum (set to appear in two NBC pilots in 2013), Ann Carr (Louie), Asif Ali (staring in the NBC multi-camera, Joe, Joe & Jane) and many more!
