Interesting Web Series: 'Wolfpack of Reseda'

Received an interesting press bit on a web series recently called Wolfpack of Reseda.  It's about Ben March and his mundane 20-something life.  But things get changed up when he becomes convinced that he’s been bitten by a werewolf.  In the suburban-Los Angeles sprawl of Reseda, CA.

Since he thinks he's a werewolf, he forms his own wolf pack.   All the while, the bite he got was on the waning moon, so we get to wait and see that once the moon does turn full in a later episode, if he really is a werewolf!

After receiving the press bit, I decided to check it out.  It isn't bad actually. 

Their pitch is that the web series is Office Space meets True Blood... but I was getting more of a vibe of Chuck or Jerry Seinfeld with a hint of werewolves.  It has the usual fare of office staffers, from the obnoxious to the cute.

Wolfpack of Reseda is produced by Fox Digital, in conjunction with Kia Motors.  

The official press release is below, and below that, the embedded first episode if you want to check it out for yourself.

Ben March hates his life. The torture of listening to motivational speeches from the slimy head salesman at work, the depressing apartment and foul smells of his Animal Control officer roommate at home, and – most of all – the crappy car that shuttles him between the two. There seems to be no escape from his suburban despair until one night he is bitten by a mysterious creature in the woods. Could he now be a werewolf?
Suddenly, he has the instincts of an alpha dog. For the first time, he pushes aside the mundane to do what he really wants with his life. Forming his own “wolfpack,” Ben makes his lair in Reseda, and has the run of the Valley. But soon, the threat of the murderous beast within him begins to rear its ugly head.
