F to 7th

Tweetable Logline:

A new web series that follows the descent of THE SLOPE co-creator Ingrid Jungermann into stupid lesbian middle age.
Elevator Pitch:
In this spin-off to the popular web series THE SLOPE, Ingrid struggles to find herself in a world where sexuality and gender have left her old-fashioned lesbianism behind. The eight-episode first season includes storylines about a misogynistic lesbian softball player, Park Slope Food Coop members and dental dams.

Michael Showalter, Gaby Hoffmann, Ann Carr, and Ashlie Atkinson are slated to appear. Shows that deal with lesbian, intersex and trans issues are rare. In order to make this show as funny and offensive as we want to, we need your help. We’re raising funds through Kickstarter to shoot in November.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Ingrid Jungermann (“The Slope”)
Producer: Jason Klorfein (“Richard’s Wedding”)
Cinematographer: Ed Barnes
Art Director: Charles Rogers
Editor: Sarah-Violet Bliss (“Tar”)
Sound: Gregg Mailloux
Music: The Rosebuds

About the Production:

“I’m really interested in internalized homophobia and transphobia because most of us are programmed to feel that who we are is flawed. I still struggle with wondering if my sexuality is a curse, and I came out when I was 18. I like making all these dark issues into comedy. The new episodes deal a lot with gender and how silly we all are for taking sides and promoting types. With each character in every episode, I attempt to show that there’s a pecking order of power: You always have someone above judging you and someone below whom you judge.” — Ingrid Jungermann
