"The Wakefield Variation"

The Wakefield Variation is a webseries loosely inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story "Wakefield."
Wakefield has been hiding in a small apartment for years. He didn't leave any traces behind, and keeps spying on his former girlfriend Eleanor using bugs and hidden cameras, in a sort of twisted social experiment. Time goes by, in a flow of memories, thoughts, and loneliness. When the girl is about to make a step which would put her out of range for good, he starts thinking about getting back into her life.
It was produced by independent Italian production studio Effetto Espanso; shot on location in Pisa, Italy. It stars Canadian actors Michael Brian and Kelsey Gillis.

Here is the pilot episode.

Great titles, handsome actors. I couldn't finish as the blurb seems to promise more of the slow meaningless loneliness brought on by the actor himself. Nathaniel Hawthorne's characters don't appeal.
