New Web Series 'Twenty Five' Explores Twenty-Something Life In NYC: VIDEO

Twentyfive

Writer Josh Duboff has unveiled the trailer for his new web series, Twenty Five, about three high school friends reconnecting in New York City just two years out of college. Funded through Kickstarter and named a Staff Pick, the web series was also chosen as a Project of the Week by IndieWire. Four fifteen minute episodes are slated to launch in October.

Check out the charming and amusing trailer, in which one character, Jimmy, confronted with someone who's never seen Breaking Bad, asks the question so often asked of Breaking Bad virgins, "What do you do at night?!" AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Terrible acting.

  2. It has its moments, but this looks like it's about as self-indulgent as Girls is. Guess we'll find out next month.

  3. I liked this better when it was called "Friends" or "Girls" or . . .

  4. Wow...young attractive white people in New York City? Now that's a group no one has ever chronicled before.

  5. More proof that NYC has gentrified to the point where it is indistinguishable from the suburbs.

  6. Just what is needed to fill that huge gap in 20-somethings-living-and-loving in NYC viewing options. Uggh.

  7. I always find it pretty amusing when people are apalled that I haven't seen "Breaking Bad" or most other shows.. Like it's a foreign concept that I actually have a life and don't sit in front of the TV every night..

  8. If they are supposed to be 25 why does everyone look 40?

  9. I agree with the comments that this web series, along with others like it, give a skewed look at young gay life in New York City. But I would challenge those who keep feeling the need to make those kinds of comments in every web vid series mentioned on here to take your more honed creative talent and produce a more realistic web series. You'll be in a stronger position to make critical commentary if you do.

  10. Glad it's a web series. Only 20-somethings will watch.

  11. "What do you do at night?"

    I'll tell you this. It isn't picked by Vimeo Staff.

  12. I know this series' concept doesn't seem revolutionary, but neither are most network family comedies, legal shows, hospital dramas, etc.

    And let's be logical: many young aspiring film-makers and performers are likely to move to a city like New York to try to get their start - which makes it likely that they will shoot on location there. They're likely to base their shows on their own lives in their own neighborhoods, and they're likely to work with their friends and their friends' friends. At the current cultural moment, this is going to result in a certain amount of web content being made by and about young white people in New York. This is the same reason why there are several web series about aspiring Broadway performers (Submissions Only, It Could Be Worse, etc): because aspiring Broadway performers are writing, producing, and acting in them. And there's nothing wrong with their doing that.

    I also don't see any reason to suspect that Towleroad is deliberately neglecting web series with gay content made by and/or about people of color. If anyone follows shows like that which are off the radar so far, let the rest of us know!

  14. White disenchanted 20somethings in NYC? It was called "Wasteland" and it only lasted 3 episodes in 1999.
