The series features the Flea's resident company of actors, The Bats, who are broken into five teams, each of which performs an original ten-minute episodic play. The audience then votes for its three favorite pieces, which return the next week with a new installment. The teams with the two least popular stories must likewise come back the following week, but with entirely different serialized plays.
The participating playwrights for the project include Josh Barrett, Patrick Barrett, Chad Beckhim, Havilah Brewster, Lila Fein, Dylan Dawson, Nathan Leigh, Adam Lerman, and Alena Smith.
The company features Tiffany Abercrombie, Brett Aresco, Crystal Arnette, Satomi Blair, Allison Buck, Ugo Chukwu, Thomas Crawford, Katherine Folk-Sullivan, Grant Harrison, Halima Henderson, Alex Herrald, Harrison Hill, Josephine Huang, Amanda Idoko, Christian Jacobs, Yvette King, Vin Kirdakorn, Maren Langdon, Georgia X. Lifsher, Vella Lovell, Kate Michaud, Seth Moore, Megha Nabe, Sade Namei, Joy Natoma, Reynaldo Pinillia, Briana Pozner, Donaldo Prescod, Brett Robinson, John Russo, Anita Sabherwal, Joann Sacco, Zak Sandler, Nicky Schmidlein, Michelle Silvani, Dominic Spillane, Stephen Stout, Hansel Tan, Ronald Washington, Alana Williams, Akyiaa Wilson and Monica Wyche.
In addition to the episodic plays, the performances feature live music. Bands scheduled to appear during the second installment of #serials@theflea include Avan Lava, Grace McLean and Teen Girl Scientist Monthly.
