HALF-HOUR TV MINI-SERIES PROJECT
Created by Emilio Audissino
An anthology show of character studies of a woman and a man stuck in a challenging situation, the mini-series consists of half-hour stand-alone episodes centring on the “battle of the sexes”, not only in the oft seen sentimental scenarios but within different contexts, dynamics, as well as film genres.
The unique traits of the show are dark humour, the binary cast of characters consisting of a she and a he engaged in some sort of challenging or confrontational relationship, and a cross-genre exploration over the series’ episodes (staging the she/he conflict in territories ranging from madcap comedy to bitter satire, to political thriller).
It is like Black Mirror or Alfred Hitchcock Presents with less dystopian scenarios and fewer murders but lots more wicked fun.
