Tubefilter got our hands on an exclusive sneak peek of the highly anticipated trailer for Jenn2.0, the meta-biographical scripted web series about real-life San Diego blogger and social media consultant Jennifer Van Grove. The reality-esque series, created by Rob Lewis of Dare Fusion in association with NAS Productions, follows the life of social media consultant Jenn Leary (played by Alexis Grenier) as she tries to build her personal brand in the Web 2.0 landscape without succumbing to information overload.
Lewis, along with writer Darren Elwood and director Cody Long, based much of the fictional Jenn2.0 story around Van Grove’s life—both professional and social. In a recent Tubefilter interview Van Grove told us, “During the pilot creation process, I shared a lot of personal things about my life, including my love life (which seems a little odd in retrospect). We’ve talked about the challenges I face on a daily basis, the types of people who I spend time with online and off, and the personal goals I have.” It seems that when your professional identity is built in the social media landscape, it becomes hard to distinguish between your job and your life.
We all aspire for those eyeballs which measure our success and failure on the web, and Jenn seems to have it made. But with profiles to maintain, statuses to update, blog entries to post, beta sites, web links, comments to answer, new connections, old friends, opportunities, software upgrades, chat conversations, emails, and even phone calls, Jenn’s life is a full time job, and one wonders if there is any room left for personal life at all. Is Jenn’s heavily connected lifestyle the new sign of success or simply a frantic attempt at self discovery that is doomed to implode? We can’t wait to find out.
