Rainbow Ruthie

In the pilot episode, we meet thirty five year old RUTHIE, who is grieving her dads death, and is a hot mess. After a bad night out, she rewatches her public access show RAINBOW RUTHIE that she has kept locked away (both metaphorically and physically) for the past twenty years. Through the help of her roommates, AYUMI and PARKER, she discovers her ex nemesis MIRA is a nauseating and extremely popular social media star. Ruthie films a reaction video to kick Mira out of the spotlight, and get Ruthie back to where she belongs... somewhere.
