Unique traits: www.sethbh.com/edals A Modern Seinfeld with Songs Every Day a Little Seth is a half­-hour comedy about how to define “success” in New York City that follows Seth, a neurotic musical theater composer and pianist, as he and his quirky friends use their talents, music and unconventional outlook to deal with life’s chaos.  As they search for success in career, relationships, and dodging life's curveballs, their collective ability to rely on each other is their greatest success of all. The series will cover a seemingly limitless set of relatable topics, from gender stereotypes to online dating to subway paranoia to technology changes and anything in between. One of Seth’s original cabaret songs will be featured in each episode and frame the show while providing humorous theme and context to the storyline. Finally, each episode ends with Seth discussing its moral with his cat, Smee.
