Alumna Mackleen Desravines (MAPW 2015) has written and produced a webseries, “The Adjuncts.” It is a witty, dark-comedy about part-time professors who work and struggle in academia. The webseries follows six adjunct instructors at a small college as they navigate personal and professional issues in the roller-coaster ride that is academia. The series delves into the real-life issues plaguing adjuncts with a comedic and dramatic twist.
Mackleen joined forces with another MAPW alumna, class of 2012, Imani Marshall-Stephen, to create the series. Together they casted, hired, co-wrote, and produced the series within a matter of a year. “The Adjuncts” had their launch party on October 21st to premiere episode one. Audiences can view episodes 1& 2 right now. The entire season consists of 10 episodes, averaging 10-15 minutes in length and packing a punch in every minute!
