blackpills has given a straight-to-series order to Bonding, a short-form dark comedy from Rightor Doyle (You’re The Worst) and executive produced by Anonymous Content. Zoe Levin (Palo Alto), Brendan Scannell (Heathers), and Micah Stock (Escape at Dannemora) have been cast in the series, which is loosely based on Doyle’s life experiences.
Written, directed and executive produced by Doyle, Bonding tells the story of long lost high school BFFs Pete (Scannell), a recently out gay man, and Tiff (Levin), a grad student and secretly one of New York City’s top dominatrixes, who reconnect in an unexpected way.
Anonymous Content’s Dara Gordon, Nina Soriano and Jacob Perlin are executive producing alongside Doyle.
Bonding will consist of eight 12-minute episodes. The series is currently filming in New York for release in 2018 on the blackpills digital media platform.
