Are you watching I Hate Being Single? You should be because it’s funny and it takes place in Williamsburg.

Nights in Ultraviolet

Forget being a foodie, the new NEW Brooklyn trend is producing a web series.

There is Broad City, with its fancy New York Times profile and comparisons to HBO’s Girls. There is I Hate Being Single with its Upright Citizen’s Brigade cast and now there is Nights in UltraViolet, who borrowed actors from both shows (still a small “artisan” community, apparently) and is still putting out episodes and getting buzz. I’m sure there are 6794509 more and I’ll hear about every single one in PR blasts after this post. Thanks in advance, readers.

Nights in UltraViolet follows a shut-in author of legal thrillers who joins his freeloading friends for a night out, triggering a series of inexplicable events that HMMM mirror his stories? The latest episode, “The Whole World is Out To Get You” opens with slo-mo music video shot in the ‘burg. We can all get down with that.

You can catch up episodes at www.nightsinuv.com. Get to Nights and the rest of the web series before New York Times Style section gets to it, which Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan has aptly called “the herald of any modern day cultural apocalypse.”
