A New York couple faces their own deadline to either "make it" or give up their dreams.
Have you ever made up an arbitrary deadline and then been like “fuck” when you’re held accountable to it? Well, that’s where we meet life partners Mo and Ira - on the day they randomly assigned as their deadline for “making it” in Manhattan. Superbly cast with authentically funny humans-of-New-York, Kris Lefcoe’s tightly paced laugh-out-loud pilot, GIVING UP, is painfully relatable. It places you in the very real discomfort of deeply questioning your own life decisions while solidly convincing you that the only thing harder than achieving your dreams, is giving up on them. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
