Last night, “Livin’ On A Prairie,” a six episode series created by and starring Broadway’s Pamela Bob (Hand to God, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder), screened to a sold-out house at Spring Studios as an official selection of the 2nd Tribeca TV Festival’s Fall Pilot Season. The world premieres of five indie comedy pilots showcasing new voices in episodic storytelling ranged from conventions of adulthood, sex and…William Shakespeare. The cast and the creative team of “Livin’ on a Prairie” had a blast at The Festival.

Synopsis: Meet Pamela. A 30 something single woman in the city, who longs for the simple things in life: connection, the spirit of community of family. Of being unconditionally loved. All of these values have been instilled in her since childhood from the single most important influence of her life-The 1970’s NBC classic, “Little House on the Prairie”. But, is Pamela getting more out of this show then she is out of her real life?
