It is Valentine's Day and I'm in London! Thus, I'd like to present today THE web series that made me fall in love with web series in general, and coincidentally it takes place in London.
It's an interactive comedy show called Chelsey OMG! and launched on social networking site Bebo in 2008. It's an Oldie, but a Goodie! It follows American Chelsey Pucks - played by Kelly Anne Lyons - as she moves from a cosseted background in the US to a job in London's fashion scene. Here is the first episode, that got me hooked from the first moment:
After watching this episode, I watched the whole season. If you wanna do the same, go to: http://www.bebo.com/chelsey-omg
I was very fascinated by the fact that it's so easily produced (no big cast, just a few location shootings, webcam etc), but still it's so funny and compelling.
Chelsey: OMG! has been created for the social network by comedian Nat Coombs and Channel X, the UK independent production company that has previous worked with Ricky Gervais, Vic Reeves, Jonny Vegas, Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Peter Kay, Jonathan Ross and Jo Brand.
