It’s now streaming on Tubi and The Roku Channel.
The Disastrous Dating Life of Diane Damone is a fresh new series following the musings of an insecure, self-aware 30-something woman taking on romance. The series, which was created by Joseph Patrick Conroy, takes its inspiration from shows like Flea Bag, High Maintenance, and Broad City with its sex-positive, sarcastic and raw dialogue. Comedian Brittany Brave stars as the title character, Diane. An accomplished stand-up and performer, Brave has been featured on TBS, MTV, The Wendy Williams Show and more and has been named Best New Talent by NY Comedy Festival as well as Miami New Times Best Comedian for 2021.
Brave, who’s also a co-producer and writer on the show, worked alongside director/creator Conroy for many years before joining forces on the series. From casting to production and release, Conroy and Brave treated the series as a true passion project and opportunity to highlight some of the best and most original comedic voices in NYC. The show features an ensemble cast including Joe Naimoli, Tomas Delgado, Alessio Araujo, Michael Pomeroy, Elyse DeLucci, and R. Alex Murray.
Despite a small, out-of-pocket budget and a slew of COVID-19 restrictions, the team produced the initial three pilot episodes in a pandemic-ridden NYC in late 2020. Thanks to the generosity of a number of local businesses, the independent cast/crew hustled and made it in time for an early 2021 release and virtual premiere party that garnered more than 150 viewers around the world. The show organically attracted an impressive amount of early buzz, picking up rave reviews from The Laugh Button, Queens Ledger, SiriusXM, Blurred Culture and other online tastemakers in film and comedy, as well as exclusive brand partnerships from SATISFYER sexual wellness devices and Ladybox Boutique feminine care devices.
