Great

In this contemporary retelling of The Great Gatsby, by comedian Sara Benincasa, a teenage girl becomes entangled in the romance and drama of a Hamptons social circle and is implicated in a scandal that shakes the summer community. When Naomi Rye arrives in the Hamptons to spend the summer with her socialite mother, she fully expects to be miserable mingling with the sons and daughters of her mother's mega-rich friends. Yet Naomi finds herself unexpectedly drawn to her mysterious and beautiful next-door neighbor, Jacinta, a Hamptons "It" girl who throws wild, lavish parties that are the talk of the town. But Jacinta is hiding something big, and events unfold with tragic consequences.

Sara Benincasa

Sara Donnelly Benincasa is an American comedian, writer and radio talk show host. She was a citizen journalist for MTV covering the 2008 United States Presidential Election as part of MTV’s 2008 Emmy Award-winning Think campaign.[1] In September 2008 she began producing a vlog in which she parodies the role of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.[2] She is particularly attentive to Palin's Midwestern/Alaska accent.[3] These vlogs were uploaded to Benincasa's Youtube profile, until a partnership with Huffington Post's humor site 23/6 was established and the vlogs were moved to the twentythreesix Youtube page. She has since also honed an parody of Minnesota Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the same vein.

Benincasa formerly co-hosted the Cosmo Radio sex/relationship talk show "Get in Bed" on Sirius XM Satellite Radio[4] until September 2010, when Sirius XM reduced the channel's programming schedule and let go several of the channel's hosts. She then started a podcast with Marcus Parks called "Sex and Other Human Activities" which features a sex questions segment (using questions sent via email and Formspring) that launched in February 2011.

Benincasa was featured on Nerve.com's BlogALog as a comedic blogger. Her last post on the SJ1000 blog was April 1, 2008, in which she suggested that followers missing her internet presence go to her official website, her Myspace page, her MTV Think profile, or her blog.[5] Along with her blog, Benincasa filmed a series of interviews titled Tub Talk with Sara B. The series featured Benincasa in a bathtub with various comedic personalities, including Reggie Watts, Jonathan Ames, and Andy Borowitz.[6] Benincasa has since revamped the web series on her YouTube account as Gettin' Wet with Sara Benincasa. Interviewees include Margaret Cho, Donald Glover, Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, and James Urbaniak.

In 2009, Benincasa developed a one-woman show about her experiences with agoraphobia and panic attacks.[7] She has since sold the literary rights to Agorafabulous! to William Morrow, a division of Harper Collins.[8]
