A new web series about a superhero with narcolepsy is helping raise awareness for the chronic sleep disorder, according to The Columbia Chronicle.
Keelyn is an average, everyday Chicago-based superhero with the power to make bad guys and rude bartenders break into spontaneous dance with a snap of her fingers. However, unlike Wonder Woman or Supergirl, Keelyn has something on her plate besides saving the world. She struggles with narcolepsy.
This is the premise of “Super Narcoleptic Girl,” a scripted web series co-created by Chicago comedians Sarah Albritton and Catherine Povinelli that premiered Feb. 15. The show follows Albritton’s character as she battles low-level villains, assisted by her “primary,” or powerless sidekick, played by Povinelli.
