THE STORY

MAKESHIFT SOCIETY

AN ORIGINAL TV COMEDY SERIES

The series centers on Alex, a bright young woman who's booted from the frat-boy tech scene when she refuses the predatory advances of the CEO.  She’s always dreamed of building a startup, but has always taken the safe route.  When Alex discovers a co-working space filled with founders and entrepreneurs chasing their ambitions, she finally decides to do her own startup, and make her own rules.
