A COMEDY ABOUT LONELINESS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Emily, a would-be writer, retreats home to O'ahu after Manhattan finally gets the best of her. But trading one island for another doesn't help. When she stumbles into a gig as an actor on a shock-jock radio dating show, she finds herself strangely determined to turn that fantasy into reality. Told through a playful mixture of phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots, Stanton's quirky show illustrates life with a thousand friends on Facebook, but no one to talk to on a Saturday night.
