You’ve heard of the mysterious “Fake Geek Girl”: she’s cute, she likes comics, and she can’t exist. Our friends at The Mary Sue wrote a great post about this phenomenon last year; more recently, The Doubleclicks made this awesome music video. Now, two writer/producers out of LA are giving us their own take, with a hilarious new webseries.
Fake Geek Girls: The Show follows BFFs Jessa (an up-and-coming game designer) and Kat (a booth babe), as they make their way through the male-dominated world of gaming. From the brains of creator/writer Sara Clarke and actress/producer Julie-Joy Voss, the first episode is a funny – and fairly poignant, actually – look at what it takes for girls to make it in geekdom.
Clarke and Voss want to make more episodes of Fake Geek Girls for the enjoyment of your faces; their Kickstarter is halfway funded, and has five more days to go. If you feel the plight of any lady out there who’s ever been called a Fake Geek Girl, check ’em out!
