Playdates

With apologies to DJ Jazzy Jeff, parents will understand the challenges confronting husband-and-wife team Bennett and Julie (Paul Scheer and Carla Gallo). Freshly transplanted from Chicago to L.A., the duo confront the peculiarities of California culture while making sure their young kids remain well-adjusted in the land of sunshine and snobbery. Screened as part of the Independent Pilot Showcase for TV pilots seeking pickups, Playdates should allow Scheer the opportunity to explore the serio-comic territory his former Human Giant collaborators, Rob Huebel and Aziz Ansari, are successfully navigating on Transparent and Master of None, respectively.
