Flaked, the original dark-comedy, premiered on Netflix this past Spring. We are introduced to Chip, (played by Arrested Development’s Will Arnett) a recovering alcoholic, residing in Venice Beach, California. A regular Alcoholic’s Anonymous attendee with a thriving business, to the unsuspecting eye, it would seem as though our protagonist has it together. On the contrary, Chip exerts more energy into keeping up appearances than actually being the person he lets on to be.
A majority of the Netflix series is set on Venice’s Abbott Kinney Boulevard, a ten-minute walk from the iconic beach boardwalk and where Overall painted an ode to the show. The mural piece shows a rather smug Chip, ambling along the shore and against a splash of soft greens and yellows.
