WebVee Guide has been spending a lot of time at web fests lately. We love seeing some of the best shows on the web get recognized for their accomplishments. One of the many wonderful aspects of a web festival is going to the screenings and seeing your favorite series on a big screen. Some of the shows are selections in many of the fests and are familiar to fans. Others are brand new and can only be seen at the screenings until they officially premiere online. One of these brand new shows is the comedy Flip and Glib and the Theory of Everything. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the first episode of this 2014 Atlanta Web Fest selection before its official debut.
In Flip and Glib and the Theory of Everything, award winning playwright Richard Martin Hirsch has turned his hand to what promises to be a totally charming, off-the-wall female buddy series. Wide-eyed Nebraska native Glory Beth (aka Glib) meets the cynical Philippa (whom she nicknames the apropos “Flip”) on a Los Angeles hiking trail. As they strike up a conversation, Flip learns of Glib’s wish to have the universe explained to her – preferably by a Cal Tech astrophysicist. They muse on men and debate the existence of extra-terrestrial life. Judging by the trailer, we’re in for a possible answer to the UFO question, along with more wacky characters.
