tello is proud to host TWO seasons of McManusland on our site. Season One is free; Season Two is part of our premium content.
- In Season One, we got to know comic actress Bridget McManus, who wants to be bigger than Oprah — not in circumference, but in star power. Her only claim to “fame” is her variety show, “The Bridget McManus Half-Hour Comedy Hour,” on the low-rent gay TV network ICON. Unfortunately, that show has just been canceled. Her level-headed wife, Karman, tries to be supportive, but Bridget has her own (slightly delusional) ideas about how to play the fame game. Follow the misadventures of McManus and her family in this mockumentary series.
- In Season Two, Bridget’s path to the big time encounters some bumps, and she has to choose between following her own dreams or supporting those of her lovely wife Karman, who has found a new calling in the form of her rock bank Peg Leg, and their (apparently) extremely talented dog Taffy Davenport, who is off traveling the world with her new TV show.
“A self-reflexive mockumentary style series, McManusland is part Parks and Recreation with its purposeful pauses and asides to the camera, and part Curb Your Enthusiasm with Bridget’s hilariously cringe-inducing moments of pseudo self-awareness. But at the end of the day it’s really all Bridget with her cracker-jack comic command of the camera and her ability to appear fully without irony while ranting about something ridiculous.” ~ Shewired.com
