Getting advice about infertility is awkward enough when it’s not coming from a fourth-grader. But situations like these are what inspired None in the Oven, a comedy web series based on one of its producers’ personal experiences with infertility and set to launch October 3rd.

Actress Kristen Sullivan and her husband had been struggling with unexplained infertility for three years when she decided to channel her frustrations into creativity. She teamed up with writer-director Heather Hillstrom and producer Sarah Rath, whose background includes work in television and post-production.

Working nights and weekends and with the help of generous and talented friends, the three turned Sullivan’s true stories of fertility treatments, awkward moments, and (often misguided) support into six webisodes. The webisodes will be posted online weekly.

“Infertility is rarely talked about in movies or on TV, yet most people know someone who has struggled with it in some capacity,” Sullivan explains. “We saw an opportunity to make a web series that a lot of people could relate to – especially when we looked back and realized how funny our experiences had been.”

The first episode of None in the Oven will be available for viewing on October 3rd at, with the remaining five episodes becoming available on the following Mondays.
