It might be hard to believe, but this web series was produced in nine days. Written by Reese Hayes, whose credits include Netflix’s MINDHUNTER and produced in part by fellow Pittsburgh filmmakers Erick Rigby and Daniel Kusnir, who also served as director of photography, Half Bath is an enjoyable addition to the growing collection of web series coming out of the city.
The series follows the struggles of a young couple (played by Dan Helbling and Olivia Vadnais) as they attempt to repair their fractured relationship. Their efforts lead them to lease a new apartment, but it’s not exactly the solution they were hoping for.
The episodes (available for streaming on Vimeo) tackle common issues arising from relationships, friendships and perhaps the most frustrating of all, dealing with crazy landlords. But the locales featured in each episode, like Murphy’s Taproom and the Square Café in Regent Square, are sure to be even more familiar to Pittsburgh viewers.
