If you’ve ever described your dream date as having “parsnip toes” or “butternut thighs”, you’re going to like Vegan 101.
Produced, written, and starring Joanne Rose, Vegan 101 is a comedic take on daily life without animal products. So far, there are three episodes up at online network KoldCast TV: “Dating a Vegan” covers the Vegan dating scene, “Veg Book” takes a Vegan twist on social networking and scene gossip, and “Happy Vegan Birthday” portrays a touching couple moment – and the fallout from forgetting some key facts about your partner. The next episode, “The Raw Experience” shows a vegan couple on a blind date to a raw food restaurant. While the characters aren’t consistent from episode to episode, Rose stars in each of them, and invariably brings her visible love for the vegan lifestyle in with her.
Vegan 101 is expected to go for 50 episodes total, each aiming for a short two to three minutes. Shooting started in April 2009, but from the looks of things Joanne Rose is plenty busy being a “spokesmodel” for Nutiva and a children’s book author (see Tommy Tofu Saves the Day). Also, word has it that Jose is planning on adapting the web series for a reading in New York and a full theatre production in Los Angeles. Is it just me or is she basically the P. Diddy of vegan media (check out her interview with VegNews)?
