Off Kilter

A comedy that lingers in the awkward silences as much as it does on the stunning choreography of the acclaimed Shawn Hounsell, OFF KILTER documents a man re-making himself into the critically acclaimed jerk he never got to be in the ‘90s.

Episodes Season 1

  • 1. The Denial

    Milton Frank has come back to the studio after a twenty-year absence, but under no circumstance is anyone to call it a “comeback.” This is just for fun. A lark. A whimsical experiment.

  • 2. The Distraction

    Gary, the venue manager, inflicts a series of absurd safety drills on the team. BB, Luke and Anna debate the fine points of the scandal that sent Milton into hiding 20 years earlier.

  • 3. The Relapse

    BB uses spin to coax Milton out of a familiar sort of meltdown, and Anna receives a surprise visit from her ex-husband and his new partner.

  • 4. The Accounting

    Despite Milton’s protests, it’s time to bring in more dancers. BB is alarmed to find out that the gender wage gap is embedded in the ballet world as much as anywhere else.

  • 5. The Comparison

    Two new, young dancers arrive full of drive and talent. Milton transforms into a choreographic master, fully inspired… until he realizes he isn’t a 21-year-old prodigy anymore.

  • 6. The Prescription

    Pas-de-deux quickly becomes foot-in-mouth when Milton meets – then promptly forgets – BB’s partner, Casey, over and over. Until Milton, consumed in a hypochondriac fever, learns Casey is a physician.

  • 7. The Deconstruction

    Alarm bells go off as Milton takes the choreographic process of deconstruction a little too literally. Anna’s deconstruction occurs mainly in the knee, as Milton’s demands exacerbate an old injury.

  • 8. The Disappearance

    Milton is gone, unreachable. Gary becomes a one-man search-party. BB and Anna quietly rebel with a five-minute hiatus from cleaning up Milton’s messes – before promptly returning to saving the day.
