When Puja Mohindra, the creator of "Geeta's Guide to Moving On, lived in LA she was in a writer's group with several emerging artists of color. One of them was Issa Rae. She had just launched her own web series and encouraged Puja to write about her Indian family and a massive break-up she was recovering from. She decided to produce the project in her hometown, Chicago, and "Geeta's Guide To Moving On" was born. The show was an official selection of the 2016 New York Television Festival and the 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
Geeta Gidwani is a lovable, imperfect, all-American brown girl who's always believed in “happily ever after.”
When she's dumped by her fiancé after 10 years of dating--on the day of their engagement party--she's completely devastated.
She moves in with her family, where East & West collide, wackiness ensues, and the journey to move on begins. Her best friend, Akua, is a smart, ambitious, film producer, on her own black girl journey, who encourages Geeta to pursue her passion for “Indian-classical-dance-hip-hop-fusion” and embrace happiness.
With the magical Akua, her traditional Indian Auntys, her hilarious family, and a quirky divorce support group rooting her on, Geeta learns to move on."Geeta's Guide To Moving On" is an honest, irreverent comedy that offers an original take on the modern American self-love story.
