Talking to 'Very Mary-Kate' Creator Elaine Carroll About the Appeal of the Olsens and the Secret to a Great Web Series
It's easy to make fun of celebrities; just look at how many TV shows and Twitter feeds are devoted to nothing else. But it's a skill to spoof celebrity culture beyond the obvious one-liners and bitchy asides. Web series Very Mary-Kate imagines the world of the former Full House star filled with prescription pills, endless blimps, and an over-accommodating bodyguard (known only as Bodyguard). But the show's charm lies in its firm grasp of this alternative universe and the engaging, if eccentric, relationships at the heart of it, making the series as intriguing as it is hysterical.
