Anyone But Me is a web series online showing us a new generation searching for love and belonging – in the post 9/11 age.
Here is the concept for the show:
When 16 year old Vivian McMillan has to move from New York City to the suburbs, her relationships, past and present, are tested. And her identity goes through seismic changes. The daughter of a NYC firefighter, Vivian has no choice but to leave the city with her dad after health problems that he suffered trying to save people on September 11th forced him to retire. This moving, funny, and relevant new drama speaks to all ages and hearts as it follows the journey of six teenagers and the adults who try to understand them.
Vivian, played by Rachael Hip-Flores, and the character of Aster, played by Nicole Pacent, are a young lesbian couple in the series and have become fan favorites.
Anyone But Me is brought to us by Susan Miller, who is an Obie award winning playwright and was a Consulting Producer on Showtime’s hit series, The L Word. She also wrote for ABC’s thirtysomething (Story Editor); CBS’ The Trials Of Rosie O’Neill (Story Supervisor); and NBC’s L.A. Law, among others.
