The Mortified Guide
A six-episode comedic docuseries that looks at the biggest issues of adolescence– from first loves to fitting in to dealing with your neurotic family– as adults share their childhood writings and art in front of total strangers. Each hourlong episode tackles one childhood theme and explores that theme from a variety of adolescent experiences– from the hilarious to the heartbreaking.
Now streaming on Netflix, the series features footage of Mortified stage shows, animated shorts, documentary segments, special guests and other surprises. An official selection of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, this uniquely candid series celebrates the awkward insecurities that shaped us all. Also available for purchase on Amazon.
