Written and produced by Soup2Nuts, O GRADY, is a comedic look at real teenage life the relationships, the drama and the weirdness. Co-created by Tom Snyder and Carl Adams, OGrady is a cross between FRIENDS and THE TWILIGHT ZONE, where the real meets the surreal. The series revolves around four self-centered high school students Abby, Beth, Kevin and Harold who deal with their everyday teenage existence while putting up with the weirdness, an inexplicable bizarre, phenomena that afflicts their town. Each week it manifests itself differently. Some examples include when you get angry your body automatically produces a clone of yourself or if in a great mood, gravity ceases and you float away.
