'The Crying Room' is the name of a new webseries from PYPO, a network created by Veep director and producer Stephanie Laing.

The premise of the short mini-series is to introduce an office workplace that has a dedicated crying room, just as many have conference spaces that are essential to day-to-day operations. In total, the series is extremely short and sweet, made up of just seven one-minute episodes. In one of the first, a newcomer to the company accidentally finds The Crying Room, as well as many tearful adults inside, which results in an awkward and uncomfortable encounter.

As well as being a comment on how women are so often instructed to compartmentalize their emotions, The Crying Room is a clever reference to a British sitcom by the name of 'The Smoking Room.'
