This project for HBO began as a series or independent shorts. It was my intention to create a record album, (12 animated songs about the breakup of my marriage) Amy Schatz, my eventual producer along with Lisa Heller, brought the films to Sheila Nevins at HBO where the shorts became woven together into Getting Over Him in 8 songs or Less.
After a painful break up some people Eat, Pray and Love. I started doing standup and writing songs and animating. All of those efforts became the beginning of this show for HBO.
