Crista Flanagan's 'The Garden Apartments' is a Dark Comedy with Heart

If you're looking for a new comedy web series to check out, Crista Flanagan's The Garden Apartments is smart, funny, and features and star-studded cast.

The show follows "Crista" (played by Flanagan), a woman dealing with a serial killer husband who has just been released from prison. All she needs is for him to sign the divorce papers and not kill her. Simple, right?

You may know The Garden Apartments creator and star Crista Flanagan as Lois, the one who ran over her boss with the new lawnmower at the Christmas party on AMC's Mad Men, or from her days as a writer/performer on FOX's MADtv. Adding to her long list of impressive credits, Flanagan will also soon seen on CBS' Mom and NBC's Marry Me.

Stephen Root & Crista Flanagan star in The Garden Apartments.
"I created The Garden Apartments just to be cast in a show that doesn’t start with the letter M," jokes Flanagan, "And I also wanted to experience the freedom of writing, producing, and performing for the web."

Co-starring Nick Paonessa (Law & Order: LA, The Cleaner) and Stephen Root (Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Office Space), The Garden Apartments could be considered a dark comedy, but Flanagan believes otherwise.

"There's real heart there," she says, "Buried way, way, way down under all the mess that makes up these character’s collective lives."
