The Front Desk is a comedy web series that looks at the Monday morning lives of two incredibly terrible receptionists: Rhiannon and Bryony.
The show focuses on two 20-something semi-professionals who work on the reception desk of a modern "artsy" business. The pilot sees one of them enter a flustered conversation with a co-worker crush with funny and awkward consequences. We set out for the show to be contemporary with fully-fleshed out characters, and to cheekily poke fun at the hip generational clichés that we come across in our day-to-day lives (“Y’know he DJs on weekends?”/"I know babes but I can look past that one").
Web series are experiencing an exciting and transitional upcomance, particularly over in the US with popular shows like High Maintenance and Broad City being picked up by major networks off the back of a devoted online following. This is what we are —fingers crossed! — hoping for.
The luxury of making a web series is allowing creators to share their work immediately, and with uncensored and progressive content that is a fitting reflection of their vision and what audiences want to see. It’s a medium that promotes cultural observations with risky topical issues within short form length.
So please, watch, share and send the link to your aunt, her hairdresser and her dog, etc. We have loads more scripts written and we're desperado to make them. Watch this space!
You can watch the first few episodes on Daily Motion.
