The Darla Series (2017-)

He’s a man. She’s a doll. Their love’s a sight to see.

When sunny optimist Harris brings his new wife home for Christmas dinner, his extended family is shocked: his bride is a sex doll. Over the course of a disastrous and musical Christmas eve, they learn how to understand and respect Harris’s love as legitimate. Oh-- and the two writer/producers play all 19 parts.

Darla began as a short film sketch — or more accurately, a sketchy short film— that Johnny Lazebnik and I made in November 2017. Throughout shooting, we kept joking about what would happen if Harris took Darla to visit his family - only for. What resulted is a trilogy that redefines cinéma de la poupée de sexe (cinema of the sex doll) as we know it.

We love Harris and Darla. Beyond their ridiculous humor, we wanted their love story to feel unabashedly accepting. We dedicate this series to every unorthodox and beautiful relationship out there.
