2 HOPEFUL SPINSTERS is an original web series created by, produced by and starring Heather Olt and Dellany Peace, two real-life happy (GASP!), single ladies living in L.A. Inspired by society’s “norms,” a few offhanded comments from friends and family and the constant stigma of “spinsterness” hanging over their heads, the series is a little bit “Thelma & Louise,” a little bit ADHD and 100 percent “crazy/real.” Their pilot episode marks the jumping off point for 2HS’s mission statement to redefine the word spinster by blowing up every myth and double-standard that lies in their path.
2HS had their Hollywood Premiere on May 1st, 2013 at the world famous Arclight Hollywood Cinemas where a sold-out crowd, including co-star Michael Madsen, joined them as they embarked on their sometimes humiliating, occasionally time-bending and always empowering adventures of self- introspection and societal experimentation to shatter the glass ceiling that still tries to hold them back.
They are currently in pre-production for their Season One Finale which will feature fellow Daytonian Allison Janney.
