Because the term “basic” has become so over-saturated that it now applies to everyone/no longer means anything, praised network BOX, known for creating such programming as Slut Gets Married, Stunted Growth and Williamsburg MILFs, is meeting the demand to solidify weird as the new normal with a series called Odd Misanthropes.
Where’s the best place to make a point about odd behavior being normalized? The Bushwick-Ridgewood a.k.a. Quooklyn nexus of course! The show is centered around a group of four roommates, Chessa, unemployed and finding herself, LaWren, unemployed and living off her parents, Gregoire, a Frenchman from Marseilles who is just learning the ropes and trying to fit in, and Steve, the proverbial nice guy who falls for LaWren even though she’s a total bitch.
Filming is expected to take place at favored Ridgewood haunts Lecken der Bier, The Keep and Windjammer Bar. And when we say “filming,” we mean stock footage randomly inserted in between scenes, Friends-style, ’cause you know this shit is being shot entirely in Burbank. Anyway, stay tuned for new episodes of Odd Misanthropes starting Friday (because it’s so weird to stay in that night that it’s normal) at 10 p.m. on BOX.
