PEN15 is probably one of the weirdest off-beat comedy you can stream right now.

Based on the stories of two women’s junior high school experiences, PEN15 follows two teenage girls as they navigate through the angst of teenage life of love, sex, friendship, drugs, and school.

The series is created by comedians Maya Erskine (Man Seeking Woman, Betas) and Anna Konkle (Rosewood, Project Reality), in which the 30-something actresses also play their 13-year-old selves on the show.

Here’s a brief description of the show:

This comedy series depicts middle school as it really happened. Comics Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle play versions of themselves as teenage outcasts in the year 2000, during a time when the best day of your life can turn into the worst with a stroke of a gel pen. Adult Maya and Anna – as their younger selves – are surrounded by actual teenagers as they re-experience some of the ups and downs of middle school life. They get a lot of unexpected attention on the first day of school and later face the temptation to do drugs.

The first episode premiered on February 8, 2019. The second season of PEN15 premiered last month on Hulu.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta exclusively spoke with young actor Jonah Beres, who plays Brandt on the show. Brandt is a junior high school bully, who constantly teases and mocks May and Anna throughout the school year.

Beres started his professional acting career at a young age. He was 10-years-old when he played young Ebenezer Scrooge in the musical play Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carole for the Seattle Musical Theatre company. In 2012, his film acting career started with multiple shorts and full feature films, including Matt’s Chance with Edward Furlong and Different Drummers. Later, he appeared in films such as Balloon, Splitting Up Together, and Stephanie.
