  • Manny in Real Life

    I produced a comedic web series with some fellow Stanford alums called Manny in Real Life. Manny is an ex-Broadway star who moves back home to Norwalk to start a real life--think Latino Arrested Development. Season 1 has 10 episodes, and they are excellent if I do say so myself. Season 1 debuted on November 18, 2014 to great reviews. A new episode will be released each Monday.
