The North Pole: Oakland-Based Comedy Web Series About Gentrification & Way More
The North Pole is a political comedy web series about three best friends born and raised in North Oakland, CA, who struggle to stay rooted as their neighborhood becomes a hostile environment. Across seven outrageous episodes, Nina, Marcus, and Benny fight, dream, and plot hilarious schemes to save the place they call home. Facing both gentrification and global warming, they combat evil landlords, crazy geoengineering plots, and ultimately each other.
Written and produced by Josh Healey, directed by Yvan Iturriaga, the series features an all-star cast and crew and is executive produced by Movement Generation. With a creative team consisting of Oakland poet Chinaka Hodge and cameo appearances from (friend of BAS) W. Kamau Bell, Mistah Fab, Boots Riley and Ericka Huggins, you know this show is gonna be lit.
