We at 32nd Street Productions looked into the landscape of web entertainment. We peered long and hard at its soul and found humor and darkness within.
Our focus is to tell stories - to tell engaging and thought-provoking stories that still entertain. We are lovers of all kinds of genres, ranging from the blockbuster superhero dramas to intense independent dramas. We see our heroes in the stories that we tell and the messages that we would love to deliver to our audience, but at the core, regardless of anything, we want you to enjoy watching our work.
32nd Street Productions is founded and produced by Matthew Kreiner and Alessandro Colla. They have worked together as directors, actors, producers, and just regularly helping hands in the New York City theatre world. Our first foray as a team is Lemmings: The Series, which is releasing June 9th, 2016. We hope you enjoy it!
