Chicago-based siblings Kyra and Kozi Kyles, co-creators of the popular sci-fi puppet web series Human Resources, are just getting started on what could end up being a very promising career in entertainment.

Human Resources is a "workplace comedy web series" with a sci-fi spin, that uses puppets and voice-actors for its cast.

Kyra Kyles told me earlier today that she and her sister "funded this project ourselves and have found it resonating with online writers as well as traditional media outlets because of the Occupy-esque themes of corporate greed and widespread layoffs, only with levity."

The Kyles were recent guests on the highly-rated WCIU morning show, You & Me This Morning, where they discussed the origins of this project:

    I applaud them for trying something different, I really do, but the show doesn't really work for me so far. It was like a super-bizarre show that would be on Adult Swim for 8 minutes but not really funny or sensical. I actually like the strange, almost dream-like style of the show, but it's just not coming together. I watched two episodes and it really needs some sort of framing device to explain/connect the different segments (like a kids show), or it needs to actually come out and explain the characters and world of the show. Who are the characters, what is this company, and what is the sci-fi element?
