LOGLINE:
"After getting marginalized by society and ignored by her family... a skateboarding, Asian-American dropout desperately attempts to make a name for herself at a college she hasn't been accepted into."

SYNOPSIS:

"TAMMY" is a series about THE WOMAN-- a skateboarding, Asian-American dropout who (after getting marginalized by society and ignored by her family) desperately attempts to make a name for herself at a college she hasn't been accepted into.  The series follows THE WOMAN, HER FAMILY, and THE PEOPLE SHE MEETS ON CAMPUS as she attends classes, events, and a part-time gig in the guise of an accepted college student.  Each week, she endures ridiculous societal norms and struggles to build her social life, wanting to keep a low profile but also needing to stand out-- all while trying to live at home with her brazenly superficial family and earn credits online that she hopes to transfer over.

Life at the college town features a wide range of socially awkward interactions.  Life at home (and its surrounding neighborhood) showcases superficial silliness, with an Asian immigrant twist.  These two environments are countered by the chill, counterculture vibe from the skateboarding outcasts at the local skatepark-- the only place THE WOMAN can truly call home.
