From a media release:
Babe Nation Creations is challenging the stigma regarding mental health conversation by empowering women to feel confident in their emotions in their new digital comedy series GHOST BFF, set to launch on Elizabeth Banks’ co-founded WhoHaha platform March 1, 2018.
The 11-episode series was created, directed, and written by Vanessa Matsui (Shadowhunters, The Smurfs 2, Lost Girl) and produced and co-written by Babe Nation Creation’s Katie Nolan. The spirited series sees Vanessa Matsui in the lead role, co-starring opposite Tiio Horn (Mohawk, Man in the High Castle), Dan Beirne (Fargo, Reign, Flashpoint), Cristina Rosato (Bull, Real Detective) and Jon Cor (Shadowhunters, Suits).
Ghost BFF follows two best friends, one alive, one dead, across space, time and the suburbs as they struggle to find themselves and right past wrongs following a suicide.
As once-BFFs, Tara and Amy were inseparable. Tara was a reckless musician; Amy, a promising painter. Their friendship was pure, unadulterated fun. But, everything changed when Tara, following a period of depression, killed herself, leaving behind a shattered and heartbroken Amy.
Cut to present day: Tara has been dead for three years and Amy has seemingly moved on; she’s quit painting and is engaged to a nice but conservative guy. Suddenly, Tara appears out of nowhere and a bizarre yet humorous reunion follows. Amy is left with the stunned realization that her now ghost-BFF is back from the dead and her past and future are about to collide.
