Gainfully Unemployed" follows the trials of Parker Sullivan, freshly laid off and not really looking for work. When he discovers that a rising movie star - and recent star of gossip blogs for some questionable behavior - Franco Stone is hiding out in his building, Parker decides to exploit his new neighbor’s troubles for his own personal gain. Aided by his less than reliable friends, Parker ventures into the life of a full time paparazzo...but how long can he really keep it up without being caught? It’s "Bowfinger" meets "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia" set in the decade of social media.
The pilot episode of "Gainfully Unemployed" was shot in NYC in early 2011.
Series created and executive produced by Arielle Baer and Carly Usdin.
