There is a new tv-show for all you 20-something year old Brooklynites and no it doesn’t have Lena Dunham in it.
This is the hottest new web-series that not only makes fun of influencers (like we all do), but is an honest coming of age story perfect for this generation.
“Heeldraggers” is a must watch animated mini-series created by Emily Bernstein. The show hits way too close to home when it comes to just how hard it is to grow up and make mistakes in the city that never sleeps.
The Cartoonist relates a lot to the main character Millie who seems to be a little self absorbed and all over the place. The mini-series takes us along the life of Millie and her two best friends, Nel and Ari as they are trying to get by life with a few drunken nights to make then forget their responsibilities.
For those of you that can’t commit to a tv-show then this under 10 minute series is the perfect our millennial short attention spans. Bernstein partnered with End Cue, a creative agency, that helped produce the first five episodes. Hopefully we get a taste of more soon.
With some references to influencers and creatives, Bernstein opens up each episode with the perfect title sequence that goes in the format of matching a cliche identity with the characters that you will actually meet in real-life when you step in Brooklyn.
From a man who reads “Post Web Experimental Media Intern” to a woman that is “Cultivating My Personal Brand” while she is wearing a photo of herself on her crop top.
The whole show is a hilariously written and so well-connected to this generation. There are problems we all seem to face, from finding a job, getting over an ex, and even finding a roommate who isn’t’ a psychopath, only to find out they are the one dating your ex.
With a Sex in the City meets Girls vibe you definitely do not want to miss the coolest thing to be created.
The Knockturnal was able to speak with the creator of the show, read on for more insight on “Heeldraggers” and check out the first episode for yourself here.
The show will be featured on YouTube and Vimeo.
This show is a very relatable for millennials living in NYC, where do you draw inspiration?
