What is Pen15 About
PEN15 is tagged as “middle school as it really happened,” and from the teasers, it doesn’t shy away from any of the embarrassing moments that made adolescence a struggle. From burgeoning sexuality and early romantic encounters to the challenges of changing friendships and being an outcast on the social spectrum, PEN15 tackles each awkward bump on the road to maturity.
The adult comedy series was co-created and written by real-life best friends Maya Erskine (Casual, Insecure) and Anna Konkle (Rosewood, Maron), along with Sam Zvibleman (The Neddeaus of Duqesne Island, Take My Wife), who also directs several episodes.
Erskine and Konkle play 13-year-old versions of themselves, best friends trying to stick together through middle school frustrations. One of the show’s clever elements is plunging the stars in amongst a cast of actual 13-year-olds.
While the real-life age difference does somewhat add to the comedy, the two actors manage to capture with convincing earnestness the posture and intonations of young women uncomfortable in their changing bodies. In every clip, Erskine and Konkle sell the roles, and there are high hopes that they will maintain that sincerity across the full season.
Produced in part by the Lonely Island comedy team of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone, as well as Party Over Here, Odenkirk Provissiero, and AwesomenessTV, the series looks to walk the line between raunchy comedy and a sincere look at the challenges of growing up. Perhaps a little less earnest than last year’s hit film, Eighth Grade, Hulu’s new series still looks to find authenticity in youth experiences.
