NEW YORK – December 7, 2017– Just in time for holiday binging, IFC announced today that the network has acquired a new digital series, The Place We Live and videos created by Sisters Weekend in addition to launching a new original short film, Celebrity All-Star. All are available to watch now on the Comedy Crib (ifc.com/comedy-crib), the network’s online hub for original, short-form comedy. The shows will join the Crib’s current array of acclaimed web series including Neurotica, The Mirror, and Frank & Lamar.
The Place We Live was created by Dara Katz and Betsy Kenney and follows the lives of five young adults living together – in the early ‘90s. Wet, hot…and soggy drama ensues as the five friends deal with tackling adulthood during this nostalgic decade. The Place We Live stars Dara Katz, Betsy Kenney, Jonathan Braylock, Sunita Mani, and Casey Jost.
