This new web series is all about a woman who loves food as much as Carrie Bradshaw loves fashion
With Treme and people like Ottavia Bourdain producing shows about restaurants, it only makes sense that another show will take Sex and the City and add a food element. Enter Audrey, a web series on YouTube channel Wigs, featuring lead character Audrey (Kim Shaw), a food blogger slash stylist trying to make it big in the food world.
In the trailer below, there are plenty of shots of Shaw eating food, making food, writing about food — and some sexual imagery for grown ups, naturally. Also notable: the same overlay narrations used by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. But you don't really understand how food oriented the show is until the first episode where a date commits a major faux pas: simply calling burrata cheese mozzarella. Yes, it's a type of mozzarella. No, it doesn't make it OK.
Watch the trailer below; the series premieres Oct. 29 on the channel Wigs, with new episodes on Mondays and Fridays. Young watchers be warned: Just like Sex and the City, the trailer and series are both adults only.

Ortega, the first witness called by the prosecution, said that on June 19, 2009, less than a week before Jackson was found dead from a drug overdose, Jackson arrived at rehearsal unwell. "My friend wasn't right," Ortega said of Jackson. "There was something going on that was deeply troubling me."
Ortega said that Jackson appeared lost and incoherent. He rubbed Jackson's chilled feet and fed him food when it was clear he hadn't eaten.
Ortega was so disturbed by Jackson's state that he sent an email to Randy Phillips of AEG Live, the concert promoter, saying that "real emotional stuff" was going on and that "everything in me says that Jackson should be psychologically evaluated." "There is no one taking responsibility, caring for him on a daily basis…today I was feeding him, wrapping him in blankets…and calling his doctor," Ortega wrote.
He later wrote, "Finally, it's important for everyone to know I believe that he really wants this. It would shatter him, break his heart if we pulled the plug. He's terribly frightened it's all going to go away."
Jackson was preparing for a grueling 50-city comeback tour at the time of his death on June 25, 2009. The tour was his first in over a decade and was of great personal importance. It would be the first time that Jackson's three children would see him perform, Walgren said.
On June 20, 2009, an emergency meeting was called at Jackson's home that included Ortega, Murray and Jackson. Murray grew angry over Ortega's worries about Jackson's health. "He said I should stop trying to be an amateur doctor and psychologist and be the director and allow Michael's health to him," Ortega said.
The packed courtroom included Jackson's family and when the photo of Jackson's corpse was show, Latoya Jackson could be seen passing tissues to Janet Jackson.
Chernoff told the court that Murray isn't to blame for Jackson's death, that Jackson gave himself a lethal dose of of drugs. Murray, in a gray pin striped suit, looked stunned at the evidence compiled against him. He cried when his defense attorney Chernoff, delivered the defense's opening statement.
"While Michael Jackson was frustrated because he could not sleep, frustrated because his doctor refused to give him a drug that he preferred, that he wanted, he did an act without his doctor's knowledge, without his doctor's permission," Chernoff said. The defense claimed that Jackson took a sedative and then a final dose of propofol without his doctor's knowledge. The sedative lorazepam coupled with the propofol created a "perfect sorm in his body that killed him instantly," Chernoff said.
"When Dr. Murray came into the room and found Michael Jackson, there was no CPR, there was no doctor, no paramedic, no machine that was going to revive Michael Jackson. He died so rapidly, so instantly, he didn't even have time to close his eyes," Chernoff said.
The defense contends that Murray had begun trying to wean Jackson off of the propofol in the days before his death. They said that Jackson compartmentalized his life in such a way that Murray was unaware that his client was addicted to demerol. Chernoff said that Jackson had become addicted to demerol from visiting dermatologist Arnold Klein. A side effect of demerol use is an inability to sleep. "It was an absolute, total and thorough inability to sleep. Not for minutes, not for hours. For days," Chernoff said.
"Michael Jackson told Dr. Murray that his insomnia was the result of his mind always racing…it was the genius of him…and perhaps that's partly true…but it was also the demerol," Chernoff said. The prosecution argued that Murray was not forthcoming with detectives and first responders about Jackson's propofol use. They claim that phone records show that Jackson was left unattended while under the drug and that 911 was not called right away when Jackson was first found unresponsive.
"It will be clear that Conrad Murray abandoned Michael when he needed help. It was Conrad Murray's gross negligence, it was Conrad Murray's unskilled hands and his desire to obtain this lucrative contract of $150,000 a month that led Dr. Murray to not only abandon his patient, but to abandon all principles of medical care," said Walgren.
Walgren also showed pictures of Jackson's bedroom to show how medical monitoring devices typically used when someone is under anesthesia were not there or appeared unused. A blood pressure cuff was still in a box and an oxygen tank had no oxygen, Walgren said.
One thing prosecutors aren't expected to do during the trial is call any of Jackson's three kids to the witness stand. However, legal experts said that it doesn't mean the kids might not testify on behalf of defense lawyers. "I think if the prosecution doesn't call one of the kids, then the defense probably will. I don't think it would be a surprise to me to see one or more of those kids testify," said veteran defense attorney Mark Geragos.
The first witness to be called by prosecutors will be Jackson friend and choreographer, Kenny Ortega. Ortega was working with Jackson on his This Is It Tour.
"The prosecutors it seems are going to go chronologically. They are going to start with Ortega who claimed he had warned Murray weeks beforehand that Jackson wasn't well. prosecutors want to show that this was reckless, Murray's conduct, that he behaved in a way that an ordinary person, an ordinary doctor shouldn't behave," said ABC News' legal analyst Dan Abrams.
Abrams said that he thinks there's a good chance that Murray will take the stand in his own defense. "No one is questioning that Dr. Murray administered certain drugs that are extremely controversial. it's not a who done it, it's this technical, legal standard of recklessness. The defense might have to call Dr. Murray in the end," Abrams said.
