Documentary Series 'Made Here' Returns

ImageA batch of performing artists share their experiences in the trenches of New York City’s art scene in the second season of the documentary series, "Made Here."

The series lends advice ranging from the abstract (creativity, identity and family balance) to more physical concerns of emerging artists (budgeting finances and technology proficiency).

Mini-episodes are created by artists and directed toward their peers, intending to improve individual talents and the artistic community of New York.

Starting at 6:30 p.m. on Mar. 28, the first episode will premiere, followed by a discussion led by journalist and author Farai Chideya and includes a performance by oddball music comedian, Reggie Watts.

The online series premieres on Mar. 28 and compiles accounts from Kate Valk and Elizabeth LeCompte of the Wooster Grouper, Reggie Watts, who has been featured on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and has opened for Conan O’Brien on tour. (right), playwright Young Jean Lee, and artistic director for the Public Theater, Osker Eustis, chronicle quirky tales of navigating New York’s artistic hamlets.

The first season of “Made Here” was introduced last year and featured 40 artists. This season looks to match the output-launching 15 episodes.
