Milo Ventimiglia’s new go90 series takes on dating in the digital age
To say that dating in the digital age is complicated may be an understatement.
That’s exactly why Milo Ventimiglia, James Frey, and fashion and lifestyle digital network StyleHaul decided to partner up to produce a new dramedy all about the highs and lows of modern dating.
Relationship Status, which debuted at Tribeca Film Festival on Thursday, follows an interweaving cast of young people in New York and Los Angeles as they navigate love and friendships, all told through the lens of social storytelling optimized for mobile consumption.
Yes, that entails crazy one night stands, the “perfect” kiss, cheating partners and more dramatic moments — all which in a modern world “propelled by social media.”
Since technology is at the core of modern relationships, Ventimiglia said go90 was the right destination for this exact series.
“I’ve been in the digital space since 2006, so 10 years now,” Ventimiglia, who will also star in the upcoming Netflix Gilmore Girls reboot, told Mashable in a phone interview.
“I’m happy that there is a less of a line between traditional film and TV and new media. [And] having this story related to all of us dealing with dating in digital age — and how it connects and pulls us apart — is a natural fit for a platform like go90.”
