If you haven’t seen “Sideswiped” on YouTube Premium yet, creator and star Carly Craig offers a great reason to check it out. You see, if you watch the comedy series — and laugh — you’ll essentially be laughing at her own, real-life, super-awkward dating experiences.
“This is a multigenerational show about dating in the digital age,” Craig told TheWrap in a recent interview (watch it above).
“Sideswiped” is also loosely based on Craig’s own life. The 38-year-old actress and showrunner dove into dating apps, including Tinder, to research for the show. During the process, she met her fiancé. But, she said, that part probably won’t be written into the show, as she wants to keep it focused on single life.
