a Web series in six episodes first aired Tuesdays April 6 to May 11, 2021
on Facebook and other social media channels.
It was an Official Selection of the 2021 NYC Web Fest.
Together Apart is the comic brainchild of Dreamcatcher member Dave Maulbeck, and is written by Maulbeck and David Lee White.
With production design by Jeff Ertz and art direction/graphic design by Yolanda Fundora, the series hearkens back
to sitcoms of the 80s and 90s.
An oddball collection of characters lives together in a house run by Mrs. Garrett, the possibly benign den
mother of the group.
Residents include an alien, a detective, a cowboy, a monk and many others, but all characters are merely heads on television screens. Each episode contains a different adventure, replete with mishaps and mayhem.
Episode One: RENT DAY
Tuesday, April 6, 2021
Things get hairy at the house when the rent jar goes missing. Mrs. Garrett is in a tizzy and Detective Sipowicz is no help. Did aliens grab it, did a drone strike create a distraction, or does someone in the house hold the secret?
Episode TWO: Uncle jesse's coup
Tuesday, April 13, 2021
Kirk the Cowboy doesn’t like to wear a mask to the grocery store. Uncle Jesse lives in a bunker in the basement. What does Uncle Jesse do down there all day?

Episode three: Balkie Falls in the well
Tuesday, April 20, 2021
Nephew Balkie is a bit of a mystery to his housemates. Is he really 12? Is he really Cockney? And what's with his teeth? When Balkie falls into a well, he wonders whether anyone will miss him.
Episode Four: Laverne's Dream
Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Episode Five: A Tale of Two Kirks
