Comedienne Laura Kightlinger (Will & Grace, Lucky Louie) is the creator and star of this 8-part, live-action comedy series about two best friends maneuvering through the not-so-glamorous side of Hollywood. Kightlinger also serves as executive producer in conjunction with the team that produced the critically acclaimed IFC series, “Hopeless Pictures.”
Synopsis The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman is a herky-jerky romp through Hollywood, courtesy of Jackie Woodman (Kightlinger) and her best friend, Tara Wentzel (Nicholle Tom, The Nanny, The Book of Ruth): two single women trying to carve a niche in Tinsel Town (and on a few bedposts along the way).
Jackie, a writer for a second rate indie film rag, and Tara, a low-level employee at a film production company, are determined to succeed in this fast paced LA scene. Armed only with willful ignorance, fleeting confidence and poor judgment, this lovable, and barely functional duo continually screw up, yet, somehow manage to persevere and stay best friends.
