Today the Internet is getting an extra dose of comedy, thanks to the exclusive Vimeo premiere of Break a Hip, a new online series that has some impressive Emmy-winning pedigree behind it.
BaH stars TV veteran Christina Pickles as an elderly English actress living in L.A. and newcomer Britt Hennemuth as the struggling young man who unwittingly becomes her assistant. Naturally, some bizarre and complicated antics follow.
The story is loosely based on series creator Cameron Watson’s personal experience as a young actor in Hollywood. According to Watson, “I was hired by an older English actress who lived by herself. Her husband was dead, all of her friends were dead, she had no one. She was a lovely, complicated woman. And she was alone and frightened. And that often came out as mean. I loved her deeply and she taught me a lot. We developed a very strong dependency on each other and the absurdity of our adventures together are what inspired the script.”
