“When we launched Tribeca TV five years ago, we created a space within the film festival to recognize the incredible and boundary-pushing work done by filmmakers in the episodic format as official festival selections,” said declared Cara Cusumano, director of the festival and vice-president of programming. “In a year defined by home entertainment, we are proud to continue this tradition with an exciting lineup from Tribeca TV of new series from today’s top storytellers and unique new voices.”
Senior Programmer Liza Domnitz added, “We are delighted to be back in person and present a specially curated selection of independent series at this year’s Festival. Eclectic, funny and melancholy, these untold stories offer a glimpse into life through decades of adulthood – from the wave of independence found in your twenties, to the well-earned confidence that comes with life in the ’80s. We look forward to introducing these unique characters to the world.
