Two Kates is a web series written and directed by by Zach Schultz and starring Kate Knappett and Kate Knappett.
A comedic and dramatic look at isolation, depression and anxiety, “Two Kates” follows an agoraphobic woman (Kate) after she has recently had a clone made of herself in order to keep herself company and to be more productive in her online business. Struggling with obstacles both internal and external, the Kates attempt to care for each other as best they can, helping to guide one another through a world that makes them both very, very uncomfortable.
“Two Kates” is a 7-part monthly web series that can be seen for free at TwoKatesShow.com, with each episode also airing on Portland’s local community-access television stations.
After watching the first episode, I have to say it exceeds my expectations and left me wanting more.

I had a chance to talk with the creator and star of Two Kates
Initially I saw a video Zach put up on indiegogo after watching that video I was sold on this project. The show is well produced and obviously Zach, Kate and everyone involved have dedicated a lot of time and energy to make this happen.
Currently the Facebook page for Two Kates has 82 followers as I write this. The show has just been released, I would imagine that number to grow as more episodes follow. It intrigues me to think about how difficult it is to produce anything and to grow a large audience for it. Right now I feel somewhat elite in knowing that this show has just been released. I’m looking forward to following the growth of this show and the audience along with it.
I’m guessing that it won’t be long before Netflix or Hulu comes along and start giving creators like Zach decent budgets to run with.
