The presence of a film crew doesn’t deter a woman from spilling her guts to a love interest in our exclusive new clip of “Strangers
.” Created and directed by Mia Lidofsky
, the series follows two twenty-something roommates in La, newly single and bisexual Isobel (Zoe Chao
, “The Comeback
”) and her lesbian best friend Cam (Meredith Hagner
, “Search Party
”). The former has decided to rent out her spare room to scrape together rent, and this week’s ep of the show sees a film crew taking over the space.
An overly touchy actor asks Isobel to run lines with him, and it’s not long before she goes off-script. “Shouldn’t you be able to love the parts of me that are afraid? The ugly and difficult parts?” she asks the project’s camera assistant, who she’s forged a strong connection with. “Look, I’m just a person like you. Struggling to get through each day and I’m really scared because I thought I was supposed to be more at this point in my life,” Isobel says. She’s still trying to figure out who she is — but she thinks this relationship deserves a chance.
Check out the clip to see how Isobel’s bold declaration is received. You can watch the fifth episode of “Strangers
,” directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall
, now on Facebook’s new Watch platform.
