About Sideswiped

YouTube Originals has proven themselves a contender in the world of romcom with Sideswiped, an 8-episode series starring Rosanna Arquette and Carly Craig that debuted July 2018. Inspired by Carly’s real-life adventures, the series premise has its roots in Tinder, serving as a constant metaphor to swipe right, not left, on living life. Featuring protagonist Carly’s dedication to date all her 252 Tinder matches, the series hits home with a modern audience that is no stranger to the stresses of midlife singledom and e-dating. Met with rapid fan praise, critical acclaim and 3.5M views on episode one alone, Sideswiped has found its true match in a highly relating, online-acculturated audience.
