Every day she's learning how to make love more difficult.

Synopsis

EASY ABBY is a web series about the anxieties, assumptions and passive aggressions of romance as seen through the eyes of Abby, a chronic seducer with an anxiety disorder who’s just trying to get by. Our show features flawed charming sometimes neurotic characters. It's as much about the awkward as it is about the sexy.

Abby is a 30--something woman who is trying to manage her anxiety attacks while working odd jobs and seducing as many women as possible. In other words, she stays busy.

Shooting in Chicago. From writer/director Wendy Jo Carlton, who just released her award-winning feature film "Jamie and Jessie are Not Together".www.JamieandJessie.com
