It's called #TheSubpranos and it's about two subway singers from NYC who try to make it in the LA subway system that doesn't exist. I believe it was ahead of its time. Anyway, it was the most fun I've ever had probably, so please enjoy! (All episodes on YouTube ) PS the finale stars @nataliemoralesloves and #justinkirk and it's really worth watching if you've never seen him hula hoop which I can guarantee you have not. #guerrillafilmmaking #femalefilmmakerfriday #bffs #throwback #thesopranos #losangeles #buskers #nyc #la".
