Awkward Embraces is a web series that follows the dating adventures and misadventures of three L.A. girls who prove that just because a girl is hot, it doesn't necessarily follow that she has a man, or even that she'd know what to do with one if she got one. Jessica, the Star Trek/comic book geeky girl, seems to always say and do just the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong guy, proving that, well, "Nerdy girls need love, too." Her friends' awkward attempts to help her generally backfire, and though their luck with men is a little better than hers, it's still not enough to keep from being face-aching funny.
So far we have completed Season One which can be found at our website www.awkwardembraces.com. Right now we are fund raising to shoot the FIRST HALF of Season 2.
Your contributions will pay our cast, our crew, and feed the lot of them as they work very hard to bring you six brand new episodes of Awkward Embraces. Then, during production, we'll be launching another campaign to raise money for the SECOND half of Season 2.
