I'm a big fan of web series (short attention span and all that), and I've been a fan of Matt Dallas, from ABC Family’s Kyle XY.
So, how could I pass up the chance to introduce you to this new web series, "Anne & Jake" starring Dallas and Victoria Bullock.
Quirky, funny, sweet, nerdy, time travel - how could I not like?
A press release describes the show as "Jane Austen meets Back to the Future:"
The story unfolds in modern day Los Angeles, where a socially inept but brilliant young scientist (Dallas) invents a time machine that catapults his life into a journey beyond time and all reason.
He is brought together with Anne (Bullock), a headstrong and curious British woman whose upcoming forced marriage has her hating her life in London…in 1814.
The seven-episode comedic series reveals Anne and Jake’s unique romance, as Jake deals with introducing Anne to the modern world and figuring out how he created time travel in the first place.
“I hope people take away from the series that it’s okay if you don’t fit in and everyone finds a place,” says writer/producer/actor Victoria Bullock. “The crux of the story is about ‘belonging,’ for both of them.”
“Anybody who has ever felt like they wanted something different than what was expected of them is really going to love this show,” adds Dallas.
