Comedy ‘What Exit?' Looks at Life in the New Jersey Surburbs
What Exit? a new web series about life in New Jersey, is an independently produced comedy created by New Jersey native Sophia Eptamenitis. Inspired by incidents in her own life mixed with that of her friends, What Exit? is a “down to earth” take on the life of twentysomethings still living at home in the suburbs.
What Exit? introduces two Jersey Girls and longtime friends Tina (Jessica Carollo) and Lexi (Alicia Giangrisostomi). Tina is a true Italian Jersey Girl with big dreams of a fantasy wedding. Unfortunately Tina’s fiancée breaks up with her on New Year’s Eve. Lexi, her longtime friend, escaped to New York City, where she works in finance, dates guys with potential, and relishes her independence. It doesn’t last long. When her firm downsizes, Lexi is forced to move home with her parents to work at her family’s Greek diner. The series follows the friends on their quest for love, a fulfilling career, plus independence from meddling ethnic family members.
What Exit? was shot on location in northern New Jersey and New York City with a local cast and crew. Season 2 episodes recently added in May 2015 starring: Jessica Carollo as Tina, Alicia Giangrisostomi as Lexi (recast), and Matthew Knowland as Evan.
Season 2 Episode 3 ("Unhappy Waitress") guest stars Basile The Comedian, who plays Lexi’s Greek immigrant Uncle Saki.
