Spiritualized starts as Devil Wears Prada but turns into Broad City – but with a perimenopausal twist!
After ten years, a 40-something, slightly delusional, and recently-divorced screenwriter whose royalties are drying up from her one smash TV hit "Buddies" returns to the Big Apple to work as a junior editor at a hot new lifestyle website.
Spiritualized kicks off in the West Village on a fall morning. We see Kate Connelly unpacking a U-Haul. Rocky, her outrageous Korean sidekick, is helping her out. As Rocky drops a moving box, we learn that Kate has a bad case of writer's block. Kate's old friend Karen randomly walks by and reminds her she's a one-hit wonder.
Kate believes she's still the voice of her generation, and has what it takes to write another commercial hit. To make ends meet in the meantime, she accepts a job at White + Well, which was founded by the former star of "Buddies." Hey, at least the work will be easy and filled with free perks galore (meals, hotels, spa treatments, clothes, etc).
But don't worry. Kate's still going to keep screenwriting on the side. She pinky promised Rocky.
STRUCTURE AND TONE
This is a straight up episodic comedy, none of that black comedy or dramedy stuff which we love don’t worry (Fleabag or Ramy). We use lots of special effects. We have a female protagonist and a strong supporting cast of secondary characters.
