Mark Rabinowitz wrote a great review of SeriesFest which includes a few paragraphs about Truth Slash Fiction.
"Cutting straight to the best of the best of the pilot competition, Charlie Sohne’s Truth Slash Fiction is about as broadcast-ready as can be. An honest and smart teen comedy, it stuck with me for the entire weekend and was named best comedy pilot in the fest. The show is about a boy band called Truth and the teenaged slash fiction writers group that loves them. Truth Slash Fiction is one of those polished and surprising gems that proves that there really are more original stories to tell.
(For those of you unfamiliar with slash fiction, it’s essentially sexual fan fiction written about fictional characters of the same gender, often not set in the character’s fictional setting. So, Kirk and Spock meet at cooking school in Paris and have mad, passionate sex in an attic apartment in the 14th, for example. Truth Slash Fiction focuses on a sub-genre, “real person slash.”)
Jordyn DiNatale (best actress in a comedy pilot) shines as Emma, the newest member of the group, and the original pop songs written for Truth are better than most “real” boy bands’ outputs. Production values are significantly higher than one might expect from an indie TV pilot and the fantasy sequences involving the boy band members are inventive and fully realized."
