OTP: One True Pairing is a web series worth binge-watching
Web Series of the Week: OTP: One True Pairing
So I was looking at actor Jonathan Groff's Wikipedia page recently, and it said he played "Dennis" in a web series called OTP: One True Pairing in 2015-16. I was, of course, curious to learn more, which led me to binge-watch all eight episodes of the show's two seasons on YouTube. And now I'm a devoted fan who's looking forward to Season 3!
OTP is a comedy about the unlikely friendship between Sheila, a single mother in the middle of a divorce (played by creator Laura Jordan), and Jeremy, a gay 19-year-old and former child star (Peter Graham), who bond over their love of smutty Hobbit fan fiction. With Jeremy needing a place to stay, he soon moves in with Sheila, and they continue to write together while looking for love in all the wrong places. As for Mr. Groff, he plays the assistant manager at a bar where Jeremy seeks employment - and who quickly steals the young man's heart. But Ms. Jordan and Mr. Graham are the stars of the show, and their sweet and funny chemistry is what makes the series such a delightful pleasure to watch. So if you have a free hour, sit back and enjoy all eight episodes of OTP - which will leave you wanting more.
