Promising new fanfiction webseries features Broadway stars, hobbit erotica

As much as your OTP may feel out of the blue, in the new webseries OTP: One True Pairing, the duo of unlikely friends seems even more far-fetched to the people in their lives.

Laura Jordan, who created the series, stars as Sheila, a single mom fresh from a divorce, who takes in Jeremy, a 19-year-old who’s looking to break free of his previous child-star life and strike out on his own. While they might seem like an unconventional duo, the pair bond over fandom, and specifically writing erotic fan fiction. Through their connection they help each other “at a crossroads in rebuilding their lives,” according to the series press release.

The series debuts April 15, and features various Broadway alums including Jonathan Groff, Jennifer Cody, and Hunter Foster. The combination of Internet fan favorites and pinging on familiar fandom “feels” might just be the sweet spot OTP: One True Pairing needs to make it big.
