Experiencing Interruptions?


Freelance is an original webseries dramedy following six New Yorkers through a Monday afternoon. The character-driven anthology-serial hybrid explores the unglamorous daily experiences of freelancers, trying to make a living—and a life—at home during the traditional work day. The mundane is profound, the loneliness is typical, and the women are in focus.

The show zeroes in on the abstract millennial office space, and the emerging demographic of young people making non-traditional choices in our lives and careers. Allison Flom (writer/director/producer) is interested in the role of storytelling in social change, and the transformation that comes from empathizing with imperfect characters. Freelance digs into stereotypes, subverts expectations, and asks audiences to invest in the triumphs and heartbreaks happening around them every day.
