Popularity Papers (2023)

26 x 30 minute live action series

IN PRODUCTION

Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang are best friends on the hunt for answers to history’s greatest question: how does someone become popular? Should be easy

enough! All they have to do is:
 

a) Research the behavior, habits and techniques of the popular kids;
 

b) Survive the 7th grade; and
 

c) AVOID COMPLETE AND TOTAL SOCIAL OBLITERATION!!!!
 

Okay… that was a bit dramatic. But TBH it’s kind of a tall order. Through pragmatic (and not-so-pragmatic) testing and social

experimentation, they’ll figure out what it really means to be popular

and finally get answers to questions like, do you really need to ditch your real friends to become popular? Should you quit the things you love just because they’re considered “uncool”? Is bleaching your hairwith actual bleach a good idea? (ALERT: IT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. I REPEAT. NOT A GOOD IDEA).
