Must-See TV Reading Series DOUBLE FEATURE: #squadgoals / Burnout
About the Show
squadgoals by Natalie Zutter
No woman is an island; you're nothing without your squad, your ride-or-die chicks, your tribe. But what if your tribe turns out to be completely wrong for the kind of person you actually want to be? #squadgoals is Mean Girls or Heathers, but with grown-ass women who really should know better. When Bess breaks up with her codependent clique, she must navigate the awkward trickiness of making friends in your thirties. #squadgoals is about the road less Instagrammed, about learning who you are beyond your brand, at an age where you're supposed to have that kind of thing already figured out.
Burnout by Dominick DeGaetano
Sal Murphy, campus firebrand with an ego to match, is kicked out college after a demonstration gone awry and sent packing back to his conservative hometown in suburban New Jersey. Living in his sisters basement, Sal is offered one path to redemption: take his sisters offer to join the local fire department, the family business. Forced to serve the community that rejected him, Sal must learn to reconcile his fierce sense of what it ought to be with a town begrudgingly content with what it is.
