What do you get when you combine a bolt of lightning, new found powers and two confused red-headed roommates unsure how to handle it all? No, it's not the newest X-Men movie or Michael Bay blockbuster. "2 Redheads," an original Chicago-based web series premiered this week, taking a comedic look at the supernatural world and putting their own spin on what happens when two normal women suddenly get superpowers. Let's just say they haven't quite gotten the hang of it...yet.
Jessica Johnson, the writer, creator and one of the co-stars of the comedy, developed strong characters with Scarlet and Ruby, making them easy to invest in. Will they ever figure out how to use their powers for good? Or will they need them to protect themselves against the people who want to expose them? The web series brings together a few fun Chicago comediennes, so it's definitely worth finding out.
