“You told me you were a 911 operator.” “I lied.” That’s the sound of Netflix’s new series Bonding delving into the world of bondage.
Chains, whips and hilarious quips, oh my? For grad student/dominatrix Tiff (Zoe Levin) and her cash-strapped gay best friend Pete (Brendan Scannell), S&M is a business, not a pleasure. Well, maybe there’s a little pleasure. Their professional relationship redefines their friendship, but more importantly helps them find themselves, and Netflix’s dark comedy is there every step of the way.
The series is based on the life experiences of Rightor Doyle (Barry, You’re the Worst, Nerve), who serves as writer, director, showrunner, and executive producer. Levin and Scannell are joined by Micah Stock (Escape at Dannemora), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Eric Berryman (Empathy, Inc.) and Theo Stockman (High Maintenance).
It premieres on Netflix on 24th April. Here’s the video:
