It Could Be Worse is a dark comedy series created by Wesley Taylor and Mitch Jarvis that follows the life of Jacob Gordon: a young NYC actor, who, to put it bluntly, runs into quite a lot of problems in his life. He survives it all, though, and hey– it could be worse.
The show originally was a one season web-only series, but June 2014, in honor of Pride Month, a second season was announced and the first season aired on PIVOT TV and is now on Hulu!! The complete second season is now on Hulu in addition to the complete first season.
The main cast consists of: Wesley Taylor, Mitch Jarvis, Adam Chanler-Berat, Alison Fraser, and Gideon Glick.
The show has a TON of fantastic guest stars/cameo roles that you all will recognize, people from both Broadway and Hollywood, people like: Audra McDonald, Kyle Dean Massey, Laura Benanti, Anna Wood, Dane Dehaan, Andy Mientus, Michael Arden, Jeremy Jordan, Ashley Spencer, Krysta Rodriguez, Michael Urie, Debra Messing, Santino Fontana, and a LOT more. It’s really fun to hunt for the cameo roles while watching the show.
The show is hilarious, the acting is great, and the characters are very well-developed. It’s not too deep, but it’s heartfelt. And did I say hilarious?
All episodes are on Hulu, but I have conveniently linked all of them here:
