OTV | Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate, distribute, and exhibit artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple identities marginalized by the market and society. OTV experiments with alternative ways to develop, produce, and exhibit art and television. Our programs center artistic expression, intersectionality, Chicago and digital networking.
Best friends Nina, Marcus, and Benny love to let anyone and everyone know that they were born and raised in North Oakland, CA - better known to locals as 'The North Pole.' As their long-time neighborhood changes into a hostile environment, the three friends fight, dream, and plot hilarious schemes to remain rooted in their home. Facing both gentrification and climate change, they combat evil landlords, crazy geoengineering plots, and ultimately each other.
