Watch Episode One Of The Offbeat New Web Series ‘No Strings, Please’

Watch Episode One Of The Offbeat New Web Series 'No Strings, Please’

Here’s the
first episode of the new 10-episode web series, which I first wrote about a few weeks ago, called No Strings, Please.

Episode one is titled Goodbye Brooklyn.

Written and
directed by Gemal Woods, and produced by Dawn L. Hall, and starring Naima
in the lead role of Charley Parker, the series revolves around
the misadventures of Parker, a former Brooklynite now relocated to
Washington, DC., who leads a rather aimless life and prefers a listless
existence in her new city.

Even worse
is that Charley is “not sure about a lot of things,
including keeping a steady job, but instead ventures into new territory for
online trysts and deviant crimes. Confronted with resolving grief of her
deceased mother, a father who’s moved on and a new life, Charley emerges
transformed and ultimately untangled.

Judging from
the first episode, it definitely does manage
to establish its own unique tone, and there are subtle (and not
so subtle
) hints that things will get even wackier as the series progresses.

appearing in the series are Jaben Early, Ann Turino, Pei Pei Lin, Dennis
, Baye Harrell, Rasik Ohal and Clayton LeBouef.
