WIGS series Vanessa & Jan, which brings back two characters from WIGS' first series and fan favorite Jan, premieres on Hulu and Hulu+ yesterday, Monday, November 4. The six-episode series (which originally premiered on YouTube) and stars Caitlin Gerard (The Social Network), Laura Spencer (The Lizzy Bennet Diaries), Walton Goggins (Justified) and James Wolk (The Crazy Ones, Mad Men), is now available in one 40-minute episode on the platform at www.hulu.com/vanessa-and-jan
Jan (Gerard) accompanies her nervous friend Vanessa (Spencer) to a SPEED dating session and ends up unintentionally stealing the attention of the men in attendance. Written and directed by WIGS co-Creator Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Fried Green Tomatoes) and also starring Kevin Christy (Masters of Sex) and Langston Fishburne, this series is a fun, quirky and fascinating look into the difficulties of single life.
