“The perfect remedy to the onslaught of likes, retweets, Insta-fame that has been furiously raining down on culture for the past decade,”Deadline called the female-led project
“The Social Ones satirizes our social media obsession,”The Mercury News said
“In a world that’s been taken over by social media, The Social Ones gives us an eye-opening and hilarious insight to the types of personalities that rule these social networks,”said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
“The Social Ones is a love letter to our generation; it satirizes the most timely topic right now – social media – and shines a comedic light on what everyone thinks about social media…but doesn’t necessarily say. Great comedy is a huge part of Comedy Dynamics’ DNA, and that was very important to us. We could not be more thrilled to join their lineup,”said writer and director Laura Kosann.
“I am thrilled to have the chance to be on the other side of the camera with two such terrific producing partners,”said Stephanie March, executive producer and cast member.
The deal was negotiated by Anna Roberts of Comedy Dynamics and Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
