Award-winning filmmaker Brianne Nord-Stewart is thrilled to announce the release of her new web series, The Dangers of Online Dating, this Fall. A launch party and screening for the first and second season of the series will be held on Thursday, November 23 at 7:00pm at The Penthouse Nightclub (1019 Seymour Street). Admission is by donation. All cast members will be in attendance.
Filmed in Vancouver, The Dangers of Online Dating is a digital comedy series about a sexual health nurse, Paula (Paula Burrows – Motive, The Killing), with a fear of casual sex consequences, who delves into the world of online dating after a year of sexual abstinence. With the help of her roommate Molly (Stacy Mahieux - Complexity), Paula finds a slew of seemingly respectable men to join her for new adventures. Alexandre (Byron Noble – Fargo), Paula’s very particular best friend, is the ‘voice of reason’, pushing her closer to the kinky and farther from the average dating rules.
The Dangers of Online Dating was created, written, directed, and produced by Edmonton-born/Vancouver-based Brianne Nord-Stewart, who has found her niche in creating intelligent and awkward comedies about sex.
“It’s probably unfortunate for most viewers that the reason this show resonates is because it reminds them of their own online dating fails,” says Brianne. “But it’s also a stellar selling point. I’ve been talking about The Dangers of Online Dating for over five years and I’m stoked that everyone will finally be able to watch it.”
The Dangers of Online Dating launches online on YouTube on November 23. A new episode will be released each week.
