Synopsis

Autumn Farve is a popular beauty vlogger, who scores the internship of a lifetime, working in the makeup department for “Time Warp Tour”, the most popular teen show on television. Autumn soon finds out that living her dream in Hollywood means accepting all the drama that comes with it. Through vlogging, her own creativity, and relying on her palette of friends, Autumn dazzles everyone in LA with her small town values and her heart of gold.

Dove Review

Painting Autumn is a series that teen girls will love. Hannah Paschke stars as Autumn Farve, who makes her own makeup instructional videos and soon is given the opportunity to work as an intern on a TV series. She enjoys fashion, meeting new girls and doing makeup for TV stars. She even finds romance with a young TV star named Ash Grey (Devin Fox). However, he wants to keep their relationship secret, which causes problems.

During the series’ six episodes, Autumn experiences various bumps on the job, others who are jealous of her, and a boyfriend who seems to like her only because she’s “pretty and sweet.” When a close relative passes away in another state, she is told she can’t get time off from work, and she must figure out what to do. And this is really what the series is about—learning to cope with stress and the unexpected. When several of the characters get spray-painted by paintballs, they have to figure out how to get the paint off within a half hour because they need to air their TV show! Of course, Autumn shares some laughs with her new coworkers and develops a good working relationship with her Emmy Award-winning supervisor, Ruby Claret (Kelly V. Dolan), who is kind but expects a lot of hard work. Autumn also has an interesting home life with her mother and Uncle Hue. Uncle Hue claims to be a “life coach,” but causes problems for Autumn and her mother when he declares that he’s a workaholic.

The series concludes with the word on whether or not the TV series is picked up for another season—and an added cliffhanger when Ash makes a statement that floors everyone, Autumn included.

There are some mild uses of language in the series. We are awarding it our Dove Seal for All Ages. Painting Autumn is a unique series that many teens will relate to.
