Thursday, April 10, 2014 Film: Be Here Nowish
We hope you’re not doing anything this weekend because the first four episodes of Be Here Nowish just dropped, and you’re definitely gonna wanna watch this series. In case you missed it, the show’s co-creators Alexandra Roxo and Natalia Leite launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their female-driven comedy about “two sexually progressive New York gals who ditch their down-and-out lives for LA in search of a spiritual awakening,” which means, yes, we’ve been waiting nearly a year for this. So, we caught up with Alexandra and Natalia to talk to them firsthand about their highly-anticipated series debut, working with Karley Sciortino (a.k.a Slutever), and what’s lacking in the current TV landscape.
