Babelgum Launches First Original Female Skewed Sci-Fi Comedy Series, "DateAHuman.com"

Directed by Joy Gohring and Starring Charlie O'Connell, the Web Series Adds to Roster of Smart Sci-Fi Comedy Shows

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/30/10 -- Babelgum continues its foray into sci-fi comedy with "DateAHuman.com," the platform's first original show specifically targeting the female sci-fi audience. The first of the six-episode series is live today at www.Babelgum.com/DateAHuman.

"Babelgum Comedy is constantly looking for high-quality and smart comedy content that appeals to the evolving tastes of our incredibly diverse global community," said Amber J. Lawson, comedy publisher of Babelgum Comedy. "Babelgum has had incredible success with sci-fi comedy, offering Streamy nominated programs with leading Web talent such as 'The Crew,' 'Hurtling Through Space' and 'Craig and the Werewolf.' With 'Date A Human' on our roster, we can provide a fresh new show catering towards female sci-fi fans."

Date A Human follows a young woman Allie, a human female, who has had her heart broken by a human male for the last time. Fortunately, Allie's catlike roommate, Ruthie, has the solution and sends her looking for love online. Viewers can follow Allie's love adventures and mishaps as she experiments with DateAHuman.com, a dating site devoted to interspecies match-making.

The show is directed by Joy Gohring, a 2009 graduate of The American Film Institute's prestigious "Directing Workshop for Women." Her latest work includes "18," starring Portia Doubleday ("Youth in Revolt") and last year; Gohring was recognized by Filmmaker Magazine in its "Top 25 Filmmakers to Watch" issue.

Date A Human's creative team includes co-creators/co-writers Paul Malewitz, Matt Roop-Karesch and William Weissbaum and producers Lauren Schnipper and Kimberly Simpson.

"We really wanted to take a new spin on love and dating and what better way to do that than to bring aliens into the mix. It is sure to be a series that will be loved by both female and sci-fi fans," said Gohring. "And with its global audience and like-minded series, we could not think of a better place to host our show than Babelgum Comedy."

Hollywood's rising star Anne Griffin plays the lead role of Allie, while Charlie O'Connell plays David, the human male who breaks Allie's heart and sends her in search of alien companionship. O'Connell is best known for his role in the sci-fi series "Sliders," and as the seventh bachelor in the reality series, "The Bachelor." Brook Lyons, who has appeared in "Desperate Housewives," "The Starter Wife" and "American Dreams," charms as Ruthie, Allie's best friend and roommate.
