Meet Tess, Mary Grace, and Lex - three friends haphazardly navigating their various life stages. The girls dish on hot hookups, disastrous dates, and bizarre breakups-no topic is taboo. If a guy refers to himself only in the third person, should you run away or run away screaming? Is marriage a one-way ticket to suburban zip code and a station wagon? Can watching Kander & Ebb musicals count as foreplay? Ideal for a girls night out or a fun date night, "13 Men" is sure to keep you entertained.
"'At its core, '13 Men' is about friendship," said Faith Hayden, co-founder of Leopard Print Productions and show author. "It's about the bond we have with our girlfriends that remains steadfast regardless of the men that come and go, regardless of the sometimes shortsighted decisions we make in the name of love--- or more accurately---lust. The show is immensely relatable. Who hasn't struggled with singledom in the city or questioned the longevity of a relationship? What married couple doesn't grapple with dwindling romance? '13 Men' approaches these scenarios with humor and honesty."
