Matching Pursuit

a web series



Our First Review!

Check out a great review of the series from Allen Weiner at The Daily Dot!  "Rachel Abrams and Nora Fiffer found the magic number...It is fascinating to watch Matching Pursuit mature with each passing episode. The story arc is quite compelling with a strong "wonder what will happen next" element that will bring audiences in and keep them engaged." Read it all HERE

Planning a Matching Pursuit Part Two Viewing Party

Tis the season for celebrating! Part Two of Matching Pursuit is only one week away so it's time to start planning how you'll be watching Episodes 4,5, and 6. Now, there's nothing wrong with watching them at your desk -- each episode is perfect for a quick ten minute break-- or you can binge on them all at once when you have more time. But if you really want to watch in style, invite your friends over for a Matching Pursuit-themed party! Here's everything you'll need:

Costumes! Go as your favorite character! Click through the gallery below to find your look. 

Food: Bubbe makes a mean rugelach. Check out some of Bubbe's favorite recipes here.

Drinks: To celebrate Rachel's old-fashioned style, try this recipe for a classic Old Fashioned.

Decorations: Rachel is a highly-lauded statistician and her room is decorated with all of her achievements. Make your own Math Award garlands with these certificates, a hole punch, and some string. Write your guests name on them, and they'll make great party favors too. 

Activity: Watch Matching Pursuit Part Two, premiering on Friday, December 19th! Take a sneak peek at the teaser and brush up on past episodes here.

Don't forget to take pictures of your party. Post them on Twitter, #MatchingPursuit.

Kicking off our Kickstarter Campaign!

As you know, Nora and I have been hard at work on Part Two (episodes 4-6) of season one, and we can't wait to share it with you, but to do so, we need your support.

Today we launched our Kickstarter Campaign so we can make these episodes a realization.

Click on the Donate tab in our menu for all the fundraising details and to make a pledge. We have 30 days to raise $10,000, but Kickstarter is an all or nothing campaign, so every day counts!

We appreciate support of any kind -- especially spreading the word about our Kickstarter campaign via email, social media, and word of mouth. Our fans are our biggest and most important asset, and we are so grateful for everything that you do!
