Private Project

The Quirk Chronicles (2018)

Meet Desiree Pierce, a happy-go-plucky woman who deals with unexpected circumstances with quirk and spice. In episode four, Des seeks to broaden her spiritual perspective through enlightenment and one-love sexual satisfaction, only to be tested when an old flame appears unexpectedly. In episode five, as Desiree attempts to resume writing her novel, she is confronted with a stubborn case of writer's block. Before long, her imagination leads her on another timely quirky adventure, somewhere in left field. In episode six, Desiree meets up with a college soror sister, who attempts to wheedle her into partaking in a major live event, presenting Des with a set of impractical demands. Can their friendship survive another calculating curveball?
