Press/Events

PRESS

From NPR

“…diversity influences the plot without dictating it. That all sounds noble, but — as you can see in the trailer — it’s also darn funny…I hope that a move from online to basic cable is in its future.”

From Bitch Magazine

“The diverse cast and well-crafted dialogue emphasize that female talking points go well beyond love trouble an expensive footwear.”

From India West

“…a funny and refreshing break from the media images of primped, moussed and stiletto-heeled women being spoon-fed to us by reality TV and ‘Sex and the City’.”

From Tubefilter.TV

Strike.TV has always been open to series tackling the subject of sexuality and gender, with Anyone But Me being included in its initial release and continuing to be one of its most popular and award-winning series to date. And with the premiere of The Real Girl’s Guide to Everything Else, Strike.TV continues its commitment to celebrating and exploring varying lifestyles and relationships….”

From Alterna-tv.com

With only a handful of companies owning the vast majority of television networks and cable channels in the country, as well as the difficulty of breaking into the industry and finding success, it is doubtful that Carmen Elena Mitchell would have had the opportunity to tell her version of life and friendship through mainstream media. By combining quality writing and acting, along with top-notch directing by Heather de Michele, Mitchell instead created a solid and funny webseries that not only adds to the entertainment value of the budding new genre, but proves that the Internet can be the defining equalizer for television just as it has for other mediums.

From Skirt.com

“The show aims to reflect the lives of a diverse group of women, and in that regard it succeeds where SATC failed to tread. And, it manages to do so without being preachy. It is not a show about lesbianism or the ethnicity of the characters; those factors just come into play as part of the humor that is every day life. As one fan commented on the show’s website, “this is hilarious and cutting and thank god intelligent TV.”

From Cherry Grrl –

“Best part is, the comedy is actually funny…its originality comes in that it is about four women and their friendship, and not four women befriended in their quest for a man. The fact that it sports such a (rare!) diverse cast is an appreciated bonus.”

From I Advocate Feminism

“Is this a step towards an independent feminist media? We could be looking at the future here as far as the way shows are produced using the tools of today’s brave new world.”

From Jezabel (reposted from Racialicous)

“..I love how the creators took the idea to address the idea of liberation. I need a little gif icon of this woman saying “This is your idea of equality,” while holding out a book that reads Love, Lunch, and a Macy’s Sale.”
