Benji Weinstein Opens a Window into the Reality of Unwanted Zoom Meetings

Laughs are always a welcomed distraction, maybe now, more so than ever. 

Benji Weinstein gives a window into some Zoom meetings gone awry in his new side-splitting comedy series. His subtle but sharp take on the current work landscape taps into the very relatable struggles that come along with working from home. 

The idea for a WFH comedy was born out of an exchange with a group of actors and comedians who Benji's worked with countless times throughout his career. It started as the kernel of an idea but as they got deeper into exploring the characters, they found more jokes and a longer story to tell.

While the series is set in the world of advertising, it's not a satire but a relatable look through familiar characters and situations. A mirror and a cultural insight in the ever evolving social norms and practices. 

The starting point for good comedy is human truths,” says director Benji. “When the pandemic hit, we all woke up to an avalanche of new realities, with old truths. I thought it was worth exploring them.” Moreover, “ I was really bored.”
