With web series’ titles like Blue, Susanna, and Paloma, YouTube’s WIGS Channel has carved out a space for interesting stories about women while giving female stars underexposed in TV and film a chance to shine.
Feature series Christine stars America Ferrera as the title character. Written and directed by feature film veteran Rodrigo Garcia, who has a knack for writing substantial female roles (Albert Nobb, Mother and Child), Christine follows a woman through a night of speed dating. This brilliant premise develops like a great theater play and halfway through the 12-episode series, the plot takes a delicious turn. Christine’s most interesting dates include the affable Eric Balfour, the smoldering Gary Dourdan, and the sensitive Martin Starr.
