ADULTING is a comedy series about the best and worst time of your life: your 20s. Why did no one ever tell you that life would be this hard? Or what a renter's insurance policy does? Our series explores the fun of that, while the creators are living it.

Mission Statement

90% of our cast and crew is female, and we feel strongly about working with women and telling women's stories. All of us have seen first-hand the impact that female leadership can make on set, and we want to create more opportunities for that magic to happen.

The Story

adulting (v): to carry out one, or more, of the duties and responsibilities expected of fully developed individuals. Exclusively used by those who adult less than 50% of the time. - Urban Dictionary


Adulting is also a comedic web series about an unlikely duo, Katie and Charlie, who take their first stab at the real world together, and attempt to be adults. (Key word: attempt). 




Created by Cassidy Davis, season one was released in the fall of 2017 with most of the episode ideas and content drawn from the real lives of the creators and producers. As stories were told of adulting faux pas, she realized that not only were the stories hilarious, but people young and old could relate to, and laugh at, these mistakes. As the show has grown, we've expanded the writing team to include Jenna Simmons and Mallory Fuccella who bring even more of their own hilarious mistakes and learning experiences to the Adulting World. Just like in real life, the problems that the girls run into are increasingly complex, so the goal for the series is to follow their growth and poke fun at their problems. Because does Adulting ever really end?


Adulting was created to make people laugh, to make us all feel less alone, to give a platform to female filmmakers, and to remind people of the things we have in common: the daily struggle.



  • Over 30,000 views on YouTube

Here are some reviews we've received...


"What makes “Adulting” unique and hilarious is the way that the filming pulls you into Katie and Charlie’s story"- Woman and Hollywood BLOG


"Adulting is a Top 30 Web Series YouTube Channel to Follow"- Feedspot


"I'm so proud of you!"- Mom







In season one we met Katie, a happy-go-lucky dreamer, and Charlie, her cynical and pessimistic best friend, during one of the biggest changes of their lives: moving to LA. They came with big dreams and empty wallets, and quickly learned how difficult it was to live without their parents’ support. From finding apartments to cooking dinner - the girls learned life lessons the hard way: failing hard and pushing through.






The girls found an apartment, found mattresses, found jobs, and now comes the hard part: building a life in a new city. Season 2 starts three months after we last saw Katie and Charlie, and it explores the evolution of relationships as the girls start the next phase of their lives. How do they build a community from scratch? How do they balance making enough money to live, and having enough fun for it to be worth it?  How do they create meaningful, happy lives without relying too much on one another? Now that the post-college bubble has burst, the girls are forced to be realistic about their situation and reconcile with their dreams.






We can't do this on our own, that's why we need you! Your contribution goes a long way in helping us reach our goal. Filmmaking is EXPENSIVE, even for a low budget web series like Adulting. Just enough food to keep the crew going on a 12 hour shoot day will cost us $600 over the four episodes.  To show you where your money will be going we broke it down here:
