SCRIPTED SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT
"This Isn't Me" Comedy Pilot | Original Comedy Series
Created by Ben Kawaller & directed by Adrian Rojas Elliot
An earnest West Hollywood homosexual with a skewed sense of decorum chases meaning and intimacy, routinely humiliating himself and occasionally stumbling into moments of grace
This Isn’t Me offers an off-kilter view of modern gay life through the eyes of Fred, a thirty-something man struggling to make a living, find love and carve out his place in the world. Taking a job as a tutor, he is thrust into the role of mentor to a sharp-tongued 10-year-old undergoing a gender identity crisis. “The show centers on a gay man, but he’s hardly a poster-child for the gay rights movement. He’s flawed in a deeply human way,” says Creator, Ben Kawaller. “Fred is trying to become a better version of himself, even if he sometimes gives in to self-destructive impulses.”
