Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz, UNPROTECTED SETS is a half-hour series the presents a compelling portrait of a comedian on the verge of breaking out to become the next big name in comedy. The diverse lineup of breakout talent offers insights into the motivations behind baring one's soul for a living. Their dynamic, personal, and hilarious performances -- where nothing is off limits -- show exactly how, in their own inimitable way, each comedian turns life into art. The series is shot in Portland, San Diego, D.C., Minneapolis and Atlanta, with each 30-minute episode featuring a different comedian, including Zainab Johnson in the series opener. After her dreams of becoming a WNBA player are cut short by a tragic accident, Zainab finds her way to the stage, where her smart and edgy storytelling is informed by her experiences growing up in Harlem in an African-American Muslim family. Other featured comedians include Daniel Webb, and more.
On Friday, December 21, 2018 at 11pm ET/PT, EPIX premiered the season finale of UNPROTECTED SETS. Scout Durwood knows what it's like to be the outsider and has created a place for herself onstage with an act unlike any other; she seamlessly blends original songs, absurd dance and provocative stand-up comedy into a hilarious performance.
