The very funny and talented Carly Craig is now one of Hollywood’s rising female show runners. Carly co-creator and stars in the new female ensemble comedy series, SIDESWIPED.
A multi-generational comedy, SIDESWIPED is partly based on Carly’s true story and revolves around three women (Craig, Rosanna Arquette and Chelsea Frei) who navigate the turbulent waters of the digital dating scene (imagine Sex in the City in the online dating age).
