Okay. So maybe The Burg, which debuted in June 2006 and posted episodes regularly through 2008, was not the first webseries. But it was the first web sitcom made in New York, and the first to get significant press, audience, acclaim and Hollywood attention.
We completed one season to a truly fantastic response, then integrated Motorola into a 9-part miniseries in 2007, which allowed us to successfully fund the show. Our plans for additional seasons were then put on indefinite delay in 2009 due to various scheduling conflicts.
The Burg starred Kelli Giddish (later of Law and Order and Chase), Lindsey Broad (later of The Office and Til Death), Matt Yeager, Jeff Skowron, Bob McClure, Chris O'Connor and Maria Hurdle. My primary partners in this project were Kathleen Grace, Matt Yeager, Ana Veselic and Johnny North.
