The first season of all-new dark comedy series "it could be worse," debuting on Friday, February 1 at www.itcouldbeworse.tv, is co-created and written by longtime collaborators Mitchell Jarvis and Wesley Taylor.
In "it could be worse," actor Jacob Gordon (Wesley Taylor) can't seem to catch a break. Victimized by the grueling rejections of an ugly business, horny parents exploring their mid-life crisis, and a delusional boyfriend who needs constant babysitting, Jacob is lost.
He tries to be "good" and not give in to temptations. He tries to be "open" and have an understanding of the people around him... but at the end of the day, Jacob Gordon is a doormat.
His epic streak of bad luck might just change, however, when he gets cast in the new Broadway musical "The Ice Queen" -- playing opposite stage and screen royalty Veronica Bailey.
"it could be worse" features Adam Chanler-Berat (Peter and the Starcatcher, Nest to Normal) as Ben Farrel, Alison Fraser (Gypsy, The Secret Garden) as Veronica Bailey, Gideon Glick (Spring Awakening, Spider-Man) as Jacob's boyfriend Phillip Klein, Mitchell Jarvis as Sam Atkinson, Tony Award nominee Nancy Opel (Urinetown, Memphis) as Jacob's mother Judy Gordon and Richard Poe (Nice Work..., Present Laughter) as Jacob's father Leo Gordon.
