What do you call it when:

  • A hopelessly naïve and luckless man loses his job;
  • He discovers his girlfriend (Allyson) in bed with the cleaning woman;
  • He is implicated by the police in Allyson's disappearance; and
  • He becomes smitten with Mandy, a beautiful shopping-addicted nymphomaniac, and is eyed by his kind-hearted assistant Carrie?

A week in the life of Harold Bregman. On the bright side, Harold is in therapy. On the cloudier side, his therapist is often blasé and cynical!

What does Harold have left to hold on to during all of this? Hope. Hope in the essential goodness of humanity.

"Ain't That Life celebrates the passionate irrationality of our enduring hope for a happy life and meaningful relationships amid a world of self-absorbed, self-centered people," said Joseph Amiel, an accomplished screenwriter and novelist, who wrote, produced and directed Ain't That Life. "I was captivated by the idea of creating an online series offering a fresh approach that combined comedy and mystery in an original, amusing manner with a lot of twists and turns."

The series is only one feature on AintThatLife.com, a website intended to be a celebration of life and its relationships. Chat & Connect is an online meeting place with discussion groups where people can share their particular pursuits and passions. Today's Etiquette with Layla Bush is an online advice column providing sex and dating advice. Life's A Mystery is an online bookstore where one can buy recommended new and classic mystery novels. And Lifestyles is an online shop where items with the distinctive Ain't That Life logo can be purchased.

Also featured at AintThatLife.com are Harold's Diary, a humorous blog of his writings about his life on the run as he tries to prove his innocence, and Don't Muck with Tuck, the confidential blog of gossip reporter Peter Tuck, who comments on the hottest celebrity scandals while also seeking to prove to the world that Harold is a ruthless killer. Each offers clues for the virtual reality game to track down Harold and his elusive girlfriend.

The cast of Ain't That Life consists of fresh, proven talent:

  • Trey Gibbons (Harold Bregman) won the New York Innovative Theatre Award for Best Actor in a Featured Role for his work in "How I Learned to Drive."
  • Azizah Hayes Rowen (Allyson), who began her career in "Annie" at 7 years old, has since appeared in plays that range from the Greek classics to Shakespeare to avant-garde modern.
  • Ami Ankin (Mandy) is an actress with numerous TV voiceovers to her credit. She also produced the acclaimed indie feature film "The Living Wake" with Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Gaffigan and Mike O'Connell.
  • Shannon Kerner (Detective Denise Keller) composed and sings the "Ain't That Life" theme song with her band Shanimal.
  • Heather Corrigan (Harold's assistant, Carrie) has been seen as Junie B. Jones in the musical of that title.
  • Dr. Susan Winter (Harold's blasé, cynical therapist) is actually a practicing clinical psychologist. She is not blasé or cynical at all (quite the contrary).

Season 2 of Ain't That Life will start production by the end of the summer. Check out updates on:
