There’s a new web series about San Francisco called Don’t Call it Frisco. The first episode was just released today, and it’s looking damn good. These cats really invested the time and money to do it right. And there are some pretty funny moments. When I asked Matt Barkin, the creator of the show, for a blurb, this is what he had to say:

Don’t Call it Frisco is a new web series that takes a stab at spoofing San Francisco. Unlike Portlandia it’s story based so it’s closer to Silicon Valley. It’s main character Pat moves here to start a new life with his girlfriend but everything goes to shit. Sound familiar?

It’s only an 8 min episode so I don’t wanna ruin anything, but I will say that I wish Kate Willet was my pot dealer. Watch the full episode here:
