We receive a ton of tips every day from independent creators, unaffiliated with any major motion picture studios, television networks, new media studios, or other well-funded online video entities. The Indie Spotlight is where we’ll write about and shout out to a select few of them and bring you up to speed on the great (and sometimes not-so-great) attention-grabbing series you probably haven’t heard about until now. Read previous installments here.

Pest control is typically thought of as a male-dominated industry, which makes it the perfect setting for a fish-out-of-water comedy led by two women. Taylor Coriell and Adriana Digirolami are the stars of You’re The Pest, an indie project that recently achieved its funding goal on Seed & Spark.

In You’re The Pest, Coriell and Digirolami portray Alex and Marissa, two young women who have inherited a pest control business from their fathers, who both recently passed away in a skydiving accident. Despite the fact that neither of them are perfect for the extermination business — Alex is a cop-in-training and Marissa is a beauty queen — they decide to take on the challenge that has been left for them.

After launching a pilot last year, Coriell — who is the show’s creator in addition to its co-star — is ready to bring a complete first season to viewers. You’re The Pest makes clever use of cutaway gags and well-paced dialogue to deliver plenty of laughs, and like the insectoid vermin who inhabit many dirty apartments, the series should have more the enough legs to stand on.
