By now you should have at least two Memorial Day BBQs under your belts, and what better time to embrace your bratwurst coma for a low-maintenance look at the week ahead in web series. Tomorrow is officially the start of June and with it comes the premiere of Squatters, a new comedy on Dailymotion from creator Brendan Bradley.
We had an early exclusive peek at Squatters, which hinted at its lineup of web series notables like The Guild’s Sandeep Parkih, Circle of Eight’s Austin Highsmith, and The Legend of Neil’s Tony Janning. Even NPR’s The Story took interest in the New York-based indie comedy.
“After The Guild, I was suddenly an ‘Actor,’ and I realized that was a career I wanted to further explore,” said Parikh. “With Squatters, I get the opportunity to play a very different character than Zaboo, and who could turn down the chance to improvise, slap asses, play drunk, and yell at people?!”
In a deal very similar to 2009’s breakout drama Compulsions, the series will get an exclusive run on the popular video site complete with front page placement, banner ads and a custom branded channel. It will be Dailymotion’s first original comedy web series.
The 14-episode series debuts Tuesday with a weekly release of new episodes every Monday thereafter. Tomorrow we’ll have a full review of the Squatters from Tubefilter News reviewer Logan Rapp.
