Unicorn Plan-It Episode #4: #OMmyGod

It’s the very first day of the month and you know what that means? RENT IS DUE! Unless you own a house or apartment or live in a teepee, in which case today is nothing but joy for you because it is the day Unicorn Plan-It comes out! In case you missed it, you should know that these weirdos were named one of GO! Magazine’s Red Hot Entrepreneurs of the Year and that actress Haviland Stillwell is winning a POWER UP Award this year which is a big big big big GIGANTIC deal. Basically what we’re witnessing here is the birth of an empire.

UNICORN PLAN-IT is a tight little comedy best described as Modern Family meets Kell on Earth meets “a bunch of hot lesbians in West Hollywood.” Has anyone made a show about that last one?

Three co-workers, one crazy boss and one enlightened fairy-tale-haired spiritual healer face the slings and arrows of everyday life as event planners and ladykillers and homosexuals.

“We refer to everyone as Unicorns, because gay people love them, because they are magical and lovely, and also, they are really just lesbian horses. Obvs. Holler. UNICORN PLAN-IT…Get horny.”

This show is written, directed, produced and edited by Real Lesbian Females who want to make you laugh, make you proud of who you are and generally make your life better in every way. Who are these real lesbian females? Haviland Stillwell (TV/Broadway actressrecording artistvlogstar, voice of Yasmin in THE BRATZ!), Sarah Croce (Actress, Miss AprilGirl TalkFake-Whitney) and Ashley Reed (writer, upcoming film HART’S LOCATION, once recorded a song for you). This episode also features comedian Sherri D. Sutton and actors Catherine Wadkins and Amir Levi.

If you live under the sea or were sitting outside trying to die of heat stroke last month, go catch up with the first three episodes, then whip up a nice salad or a bowl of Doritos, take your socks off and cozy up to your laptop for 10 minutes and 41 seconds of joy.

  1. To be exceptionally honest, I didn’t really buy on to the trailer or first episode…couldn’t get where it was going.

    BUT, the more I watch, the funnier it gets!! The comedic style did take some getting used to…its feels very much like musical theatre to me, minus the music. Lots of quick plot movement, very exaggerated characters, slapstick, and one-liners. I dig it!

    Thank you for doing you and I’m excited for what’s next with Unicorn Plan-It and with this group of talented ladies and gentleladies!

  2. Thank you for the unicorn love, autostraddlers and autowinners! Please follow us on twitter (@unicornplanit) and on the book of face as well facebook.com/unicornplanit – we appreciate the support for REALS.

  3. Wow. Someone needs an aura cleanse stat! I guess you’re entitled to your opinion, but the slew of semi-lezbo-hipster bashing seems a little excessive to me. It’s kinda just a couple girls trying to make something for other girl lovers on their own time and dime- not like they charged you to watch. If that doesn’t deserve a little love and support- it at least deserves respect. But yanno, whatever.

  4. Hey, it’s all good. We put it out there for you to have any opinion you like- be it positive or negative. Thank you to ALL who have watched. We appreciate it and you are ALL unicorns in our eyes.

  5. Lesbians, do you believe true love for girls who love girls? The heaven of … for the woman of your dreams? Do you wish you could find that perfect lesbian partner to share your love, companionship, and affection? pinkloving…com
