The first thing you'll hear about Nights in UltraViolet is this: Twin Peaks meets Seinfeld. It's a fairly accurate description - some of the characters are based on Seinfeld characters, with Virgil (hello, Kramer 2.0!) being the most obvious one, and a lot of weird stuff is going on.
This series has plenty of ingredients to keep one watching: books and struggling authors, heartbreak, mystery and quirk. Also: it's well written, and I think both the acting and the production do the writing justice.
Nights in UltraViolet is a ten-episode series (with seven already available online). (I'm not hearing anything about a second season, so again: time-wise, it's not that demanding.)
