Once upon a time in the magical kingdom of New York City, a city that doesn't sleep but sleeps around a lot, a land of the best pizza in the world and crowded subways, two single millennials Milo (Jaboukie Young-White) and Wendy (Francesca Reale) find each other through the Meet Cute dating app. After a one-night stand, the magic of New York brings them back together, and they draw up a “Best Friends With Benefits” contract to avoid the pitfalls of a relationship. Will friendship and sex mix without any complications? With the help of Cole the Doorman (Jerry Ferrara) and their friends Hank (Brian Muller) and Jessie (Catherine Cohen) who are also dealing with their own complications of a new relationship, Milo and Wendy just might find what they’re looking for.
Jonah Feingold’s funny endearing romantic comedy shines a light on the charming Young-White best known for The Daily Show. Rife with fast paced conversations in the style of a 50s Doris Day-Rock Hudson romantic comedy, yet inverting traditional gender roles, Dating & New York is sure to appeal to a tech hip audience. —Judd Taylor
