Ben Baur got plenty of fans thanks to starring in the likes of the popular web series Hunting Season, and he’s also an OUT 100 Honoree. Now though he’s teamed up with friend Thandi Tolmay to co-create an new comedic series, #Adulting, which has just released it first episode.
The synopsis says the show, ‘follows two best friends Max and Faye as they navigate life and love, all while staring down the barrel of ‘30’. Cheating boyfriends, rapidly slowing metabolisms and empty bank accounts are only the beginning.’ However, while the title suggests this is about people being adults, the first episode shows these two aren’t completely grown up, especially after they start talking about what would happen if Max was straight.
Baur comments, “We came up with the idea for #Adulting because we wanted to tell stories that were tragically relatable to this really odd time in life, when you’re supposed to be a grown-up and you’re just… not.”
As well as Baur and Tolmay, also involved is is director by TJ Marchbank (Buzzfeed Motion Pictures). The three have been friends for going on 10 years after meeting at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy, where they all graduated together.
