CAM GIRLS: Watch the First Two Episodes of the Charming New Web Series Now!

There’s so much television on at any given time — summer won’t even allow for a breather, with nearly every major channel lined with originals of some kind — both in traditional formats and in the more recent abundance of streaming options.

A new web series, CAM GIRLS, launched today, and unlike the ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACKs and TRANSPARENTs of the world, it’s not being launched by a Netflix or an Amazon; rather, the creative team took control of the series themselves, and are distributing the series on their own site and YouTube. (On the bright side, it also means you can watch the show for free.)

Here’s how they pitch the series: “CAM GIRLS is a fun, soapy web series about women who make money stripping on the internet. The first season follows Liv (Kate Bond), an out-of-work school teacher, as she confronts her own prejudices—and curiosity—about sex work and the women who engage in it. Escorting Liv on her journey through the looking glass are her best friend, Nikki (Annie Ruby), whose failing marriage comes with some intrigue of its own, and the mysterious, alluring Alexa (Sarah Schreiber), a powerful businesswoman with a walk-in closet full of secrets.

The series explores sex and relationships in the digital age, and how the proliferation of porn has affected women. Is it safer to strip online than in a club? Is sex work empowering or does monetizing one’s sexuality cheapen it? Can we ever be truly anonymous online? As Liv struggles to navigate in this confusing new world, she learns that nothing is as it seemed within her previously sheltered existence.

Inspired by true events, CAM GIRLS is from Executive Producer and Director David Slack (Person of Interest, Lie to Me, Law & Order) and Writer/Creator Joelle Garfinkel.”

My take? It’s ridiculously charming. That may seem like an odd word choice to use for a show about a show that explores the world of women who strip online, but it’s true. I had the opportunity to watch the full season (and am so curious where it goes next), and the stars are great, the story is compelling (and fast-moving), and it never once crossed the line of feeling too voyeuristic. (A careful line to be toed in a project like this, I’d imagine.)

Intrigued? You can watch the first two episodes now (and an episode will be released every Monday at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET until the July 6th season premiere)…
