Sarah Ramos was merely 12 years old when she penned the pilot script for "City Girl," a TV show that she probably never thought would get produced.
But Sarah Ramos persists. According to her Wikipedia entry, Ramos (aka your new #WCW) started pestering her parents to get her an agent at an early age, and the payoff is that the now-25-year-old actress starring on shows like Parenthood.
Sarah Ramos is a girl who never abandons her dreams, even the seemingly childish ones she had more than half her life ago. After a dig through the Sarah Ramos archives (which I'm assuming is a plastic bin in her childhood bedroom), Ramos found the script for "City Girl" and decided she had the balls to produce it, no matter how embarrassing of a script it was (hey, every writer has to start somewhere).
Now, Super Deluxe and Ramos have partnered to produce "City Girl," and people everywhere are LOLing. Check out Part One below, which introduces Casey (the titular "city girl," who seems to live in a suburb).
Casey is a typical 28-year-old who lives in the city, or somewhere. She works at a store that sells... things, and her ex-boyfriend Matt knows exactly what she wants to eat (a salad that is just romaine lettuce and tomato) at restaurants that serve aspirin (???). Her constant migraines lead to an appointment with a new doctor, Dr. Foley (whose schedule is mysteriously clear), and agrees to have lunch with her to get acquainted to their patient-physician relationship ("I do this all the time").
The series, which has already been ordered to Netflix*, has released three installments to the Super Deluxe Twitter. It features typical sitcom stock characters (like Trish, Casey's city-girl best friend who is NEVER outside of her bathtub) and her coworkers, who are making out even though they hate each other.
If you thought that was good, wait until you see the next two parts:
The series is so "from inside the mind of a 12-year-old girl" it's hilarious. The cast commits to performances worthy of a 12-year-old screenwriter, which just amplifies the ridiculousness of the young writer's mind.
The cast of "City Girl" features a talented bunch of working actors, including Alia Shawkat ("Arrested Development"), Derek Waters ("Drunk History"), and Dylan Gelula ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt").

Sarah Ramos, you're a genius. We need more projects like this from the young minds of talented performers and writers like yourself. Keep up the good work.
