One year ago today I officially started our new production company Offsides Productions with my creative brother and semi-professional ping-pong champion Yvan Iturriaga. The first “business decision” I made was to order business cards for us. Ha! 2020 was about to be like, “Business cards?! You really think you’re about to meet people in person??!”
Like many of you in this growing crisis…I’ve been struggling to figure out, “What the f*ck can I do to really help out?” Well, together with Rosario Dawson, W. Kamau Bell, and friends, we are throwing a May Day show to support some of our most vulnerable neighbors and challenge injustice during this crisis and beyond .
“The wrong Amazon is burning. The wrong ICE is melting.” So begins the newest video from The North Pole universe. And I’m incredibly proud of this one. I mean, hey, it’s not everyday you shoot a video about the devastating California wildfires literally DURING the last round of wildfires.
We’re ba-aaaaacck! The North Pole is here with a full new season of our dramatic comedy web series. I had the honor (and ridiculous joy, as you’ll see watching the show) of writing and executive producing the show again, this time with Rosario Dawson and of course my friends at Movement Generation.
This is for El Paso. For Dayton. For Gilroy. For all of us who can and must do better.
This is for my son.
