New York,NY (I-Newswire) January 3, 2013 - Quarter-life crisis comedy web series FAMOUS FARRAH makes its series debut on Thursday, JANUARY 17th. FAMOUS FARRAH pokes fun at the entitlement of the rich, hip hop culture and the desire to be famous. The series follows infectious disease scientist Farrah as she becomes a member of the hapless, questionably talented, Cake Boys rap crew.
This is to be the first of a nine episode season. New episodes are scheduled to release monthly following the premiere. All episodes will run exclusively on FamousFarrah.com
FAMOUS FARRAH is a clever, but not too cool, daffy, but not slapstick spoof on the hip-hop game. As her 26th birthday approaches, Farrah Satrapi (Kathreen Khavari) realizes that she's bored with her monotonous, sterile life in the lab. After John (Mike Ivers), her Wall St. big-shot fiancé, forgets her birthday, Farrah’s wannabe socialite sister Ava (Giselle Vasquez) takes her out for the celebration she deserves. During their night out on the town, Farrah has a chance encounter with The Cake Boys -- a floundering rap group looking for a gimmick to put them on the map. After meeting Farrah, crew leaders Mac Illa (Lamar Cheston) and Greg Greasy (Eden Marryshow) are convinced that once they make her their “Fergie," they're bound to take over the game. Deciding she needs a little spice in her life, Farrah accepts the offer and the comedy ensues. "The Famous Farrah team hopes to bring a fresh meaning to the idea of career change and transformation with the new comedy series," says director Talibah Newman.
FAMOUS FARRAH is directed by award winning director Talibah Newman. The series is produced by Khaliah Neal and created and written by Chuck Neal.
