Experiencing Interruptions?

Lady Parts: The Webseries

Lady Parts is a comedic webseries about the sexist nonsense female actors encounter on the job and the moments that push them to fight back against it. This ten-episode series is one part sketch comedy, one part cultural criticism, and all served up with a healthy dose of snark. Taking on everything from workplace sexual harassment, to economic exploitation, to unrealistic beauty standards in media, Lady Parts is a look at the situation on the ground of the entertainment industry through the eyes of the women slogging through its trenches.

Based on the internationally featured blog www.SomeLadyParts.com.

Director Biography - Katrina Day

Katrina Day is a Brooklyn based writer, actor, and director. She launched SomeLadyParts.com to catalogue the heinously sexist, hilariously bad casting calls she was seeing on the daily as an early career actor in NYC. When the blog blew up and amassed a following of 25K, Katrina harnessed its popularity to crowd fund Lady Parts: The Webseries.

Since graduating from NYU Tisch, Katrina has been acting, writing, and directing in the indie theatre, film, and TV scenes in NYC. Her work has been seen everywhere from the pages of BUST Magazine to the stage at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Lady Parts: The Webseries is the first on-camera project she has written, directed, and starred in.

Director Statement

"Seeking: Girlfriends of Male Principals"
"Seeking: Female to lay face-down in a pool of fake blood for two days. Unpaid."
"Seeking: Female. 25-32. Too big to be a woman, but there she is."

I wish I could tell you that these casting calls were totally fictional, crafted in the name of bleak, groan-inducing comedy. But to borrow a phrase, "You can't make this stuff up", and alas, neither can I. These actual casting calls are just a tiny sample of the completely real, cringe-worthy catalogue at SomeLadyParts.com, where I repost the misogynistic, mind-boggling, and just downright bizarre online casting calls I see every day as a female actor.

I started Lady Parts as a forum for my fellow actors, a place where we could all encourage each other to have higher standards for the roles we audition for and ultimately accept. But soon, industry outsiders were flooding the site to gape in amazement at the unearthed evidence of the sexism that is fundamental to so much of the media we all consume.

Lady Parts: The Webseries continues the original blog's mission of utilizing snarky humor to illuminate the nasty, insidious problems running rampant in the entertainment industry today. By adopting the structure of short-form sketch comedy and hosting the series on Youtube, we hope to introduce viewers to ideas and issues they may be unfamiliar with through a very familiar medium.

While it was all well and good to point out the shortcomings of the entertainment industry via SomeLadyParts.com, I wanted to make a companion webseries to put my money where my mouth was and create some great, female-driven content of my own. My goal in writing this series was to show how female actors experience sexism on the job without making my female characters into punchlines themselves. Lady Parts: The Webseries invites its viewers to laugh with its female characters, not at them. The goal of Lady Parts is to flip the script and let us all laugh at the sexist forces at work in this industry that are so dead set on making women the butt of every joke.
