Funding Friday: Single Serving
Single Servings is a web series about that awkward “in between” time where you aren’t really a kid anymore, but you can’t quite call yourself an adult yet either. You don’t have your dream job, or your dream house, or your dream relationship, but youthink you’re getting there. Maybe. The series follows Margo, as she attempts to find a date in under six weeks to her best friend and roommate, Renee’s wedding, while at the same time trying to cope with the idea that life moves forward, and the inevitability that we must all grow up.
Christina Benedetto(Creator, Producer, Margo) is a New York based writer, producer, and actress.

Single Servings, her latest project, will be unique in that it is her first venture into the realm of film; and she could not be more excited.
