ABOUT THE SHOW
UNEASY is a comedic web-series about a codependent Nigerian-American and Mexican-American, best friend-duo struggling to continue to live in Oakland, CA.
Cat and Ade have long ago been priced out of the city they have grown to love–Oakland, but by the grace of food stamps, student loans, and rent control, they are just barely holding on.
Over the course of 8 episodes, you’ll ride along as they “fake it till they make it” during job interviews at tech companies they don’t understand, babysit for “peaceful” parents, and deal with being women of color in academia. All while trying to find a sense of purpose and appease their worried parents.
Created by Samiat Salami and Vanessa Flores. Uneasy is written, produced, and directed by Samiat Salami, with additional writing by Vanessa Flores.
The series was made possible thanks to the generous donation of the 127 individual donors, that gave during its Seed & Spark crowdfunding campaign.
