Monique Sorgen wrote and directed “CODEPENDENT SOCKS!,” which won Best Web Series at the Broad Humor Film Festival.

This sitcom is about Steven, a civil rights lawyer with a questionable sense of personal boundaries who works at his law firm with his most recent ex-wife, Joy, while his current wife, Bliss, employs her own ex-husband, Giovanni, to help her out around the house. Inspired by a true situation… But with sock puppets.

AWD members Vickie Sampson and Reiko Aylesworth did the sound design and voiced “Joy,” respectively. Follow Monique on X and Instagram!
