Opening Wednesday, April 24th, from 6PM - 8PM
At long last, #OTVWednesdays have returned with a fresh cycle of premieres for the 2019 season! Every Wednesday in April we will be at the Chicago Cultural Center with an evening of releases. On April 24th join us for OTV Presents: Renee, Good Enough & Kings and Queens
Renee is a dark comedy about an elder millennial woman serving as caretaker for her ailing and abusive parents at the expense of living her own life.
In Good Enough, attempting to hold it all together, a group of Chicago-based friends face their flaws and learn to love themselves as a string of messy decisions unravel during Sunday supper.
In Kings and Queens, drag performers and best friends Polly Glamory and Stevie Stars ditch their boring college graduation to compete in the last round of a drag competition. Their relationships with each other and everyone around them are tested as they try to become the best performers in the most competitive drag scene in the country.
OTV – Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple communities marginalized by the market and society.
