Biological Clock Web Series: Reality Meets Scripted Series

There's a new web series that brings us behind the scenes of the lives of single New Yorkers. The series, called Biological Clock, came from the mind of insightful and talented Jamie Mittleman, who created the series and stars as main character Julia.

The show gives us a raw look into the world of dating, including the unflattering moments, because it's based on true experiences. Spending hours upon hours talking to people, Mittleman interviewed friends, colleagues and strangers to find out about their experiences, nightmares, fears and successes in the world of dating. She blends these stories beautifully to create the worlds of her cast members.

Featuring raw humor and honest confessions, Mittleman tackles both gay and straight relationships, and gives us messages that some people really need to hear - sometimes, you need to change your dating style or you're going to continue to go nowhere. And a second date does not mean an impending marriage proposal, so while you can dream, jumping in too fast can do more harm than good.

One of the best parts of the series is Mittleman's take on human interaction. You can truly feel the discomfort of the characters' encounters with others. The show captures the intentional awkwardness that has been done so well on mainstream sitcoms like The Office (hello, Michael Scott!). Plus, the dialogue rings true with what we've all told ourselves and hoped to believe it: "I'm not alone. I have a blanket and peanut butter."
