A comedy web-series about Lucy and David: two idiotic EMTs who love life and each other. As friends. Because, seriously, ew.

Help KickStart "The LifeSavers" Comedy Web-Series

THE STORY:

Lucy (Leslie-Anne Huff), a former phone-sex-operator, and David (Josh Banday), a 30-something still living with his mom, are two EMT's with the strangest friendship you'll see on screen. 

From absurd to poignant to just plain strange, Lucy and David’s friendship will take you for a ride (in an ambulance) as they navigate work, love, and personal hygiene.
