Eddie and her three best friends are looking for love, sex, and companionship, but a string of bizarre internet meetups make them question the sanity of dating.
Inspired by real events, Tinder is the Night is a short digital comedy that chronicles the online dating adventures of Eddie and her three girlfriends in New York City and the gorgeous, ugly, sexy, kinky, fantastically weird men and women they meet along the way. It’s a subversive take on dating nestled in traditional romcom format.
In the pilot, poor, dorky Eddie is excited about a hot first date, and her best friends try to help her comprehend the intricacies of online romance. When Eddie gets over-anxious and writes a string of off-putting messages, her dating hopes collapse and leave her stranded in a nightmare of hot couples. It takes a run-in with an ominous night terror for Eddie to understand that happiness starts with self-love.
In the second episode, bohemian Ruby and handsome Julian are having a fabulous first date, but when Ruby wants him to go home with her, Julian surprises her with his sexual proclivities. He tries to manipulate her into fulfilling his fantasies, but Ruby gets the upper hand in the episode’s hilarious climax.
Dating helps the women find confidence through sexual freedom, as well as the meaning of love, honesty, intimacy, and friendship.
