The Mortified Sessions
THE MORTIFIED SESSIONS
Artists. Entertainers. Innovators.
Peek Into the Pages of Their Past
Angst. Awkwardness. Insight. The makers of Mortified have teamed with Sundance Channel to create The Mortified Sessions, an offbeat interview series that invites our favorite pop culture personalities to unearth their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (old diaries, letters, art, lyrics) and discuss what those reveal about who they've become. Join Mortified founder Dave Nadelberg for an unusual and intimate conversation that examines: are the secrets of success buried in the pages of our awkward past?

Q: Is the TV show like the stage show?
A: The Mortified Sessions is not intended as an adaptation of our stage show, Mortified Live. It's an interview series. As with our books or other projects, The Mortified Sessions is a companion piece that exists as its own thing.
Will there ever be a screen adaptation of the live stage show?
A: YES! The stage show is the focus of Mortified Nation, a traveling documentary that captures our live readings in various cities. The film marks the first time we'll be able to truly share the stage show, in all its awkward glory, with a wider audience.
Q: How can I find out more about The Mortified Sessions
A: Visit the TV series' official Sundance Channel page or its official Facebook page, both run by Sundance. Or spread the word with Mortified's own Facebook and Twitter (@Mortified). We're a growing show on a growing network and need your cheerleading.
Q: Can I watch the series if I don't get Sundance Channel?
A: There are web clips available on Sundance's official series page. And you can download season 1 on iTunes. Need helping find the channel # on your TV? Type your zipcode into this simple tool to locate Sundance's # on your TV service.
HOST YOUR OWN MORTIFIED POTLUCK PARTY
Why let famous people have all the the fun? Throw a Mortified Potluck Party-- invite some friends over to watch an episode of The Mortified Sessions, then conduct your own "session" with them afterward! BYO artifacts. How it works:
Invite friends over to watch the show.
Tell them to bring 1 childhood artifact (prom photo, love letter, toy, even a printout of a David Hasselhoff ) to put in a shoebox upon arrival.
After the episode, remove an object from the shoebox and have the group ask 3 questions to person who brought it.
Continue until the box is empty.
Want to up the ante? Place bets beforehand on which friend will bring the most mortifying artifact.And if you hosted a Mortified Sessions Potluck Party, we'd love to know! Post a pic of your friends with the shoebox on Facebook or Twitter. #MortifiedSessions
