Stray Cats Web Series Launches October 1
Dark Comedy Tells The Real Life of New York City Artists
Bushwick, NY – September 2020 – Stray Cats launches on YouTube (link below), October 1, 2020, highlighting the lives of three New York City based artists that reside in far off working class neighborhoods in Brooklyn while pursuing their dreams in the city.
The web series, created by Gillian Leigh Visco, a New York City actor and musician herself, draws on her own life’s experiences in a world that caters more to the idle wealthy and leaves starving creatives fighting for their lives.
“Stray Cats is a dark comedy about a few rough and tumble artist kids trying to make it in New York City,” Visco states. “I want the series to shine a light on what it’s really like for struggling artists to make a life for themselves, and simultaneously act as a platform for different genres of underground art.”
To bring the web series to life, Visco assembled a truly talented cast and crew to film the pilot episode, including episode director Colin Hooker-Haring, who’s worked on major films that featured A-list actors Joseph Gorden-Levitt and Seth Rogan.
The show weaves together Visco’s love for Music, Film, and Art, highlighting underground art throughout the series in hopes to bring to surface the groups of people who struggle to stay afloat in NYC’s choppy waters.
“The entire series will be full of independent music from the current scene in Brooklyn,” says Visco. “The pilot episode features music by Sic Tic and Darkwing, two local independent bands that have been a staple to the Brooklyn scene for years.”
Stray Cats will have a 3 minute teaser featured on BandsDoBk (https://bandsdobrooklyn.com), a highly respected website for underground artist happenings around Brooklyn, on September 30.
