WHAT WE ARE:
Parker & Steve is an indie "bromcom" webseries about two regular guys facing financial woes, dating disasters, hilarious awkwardness and the best "characters" New York City has to offer. Steve is a struggling writer- busking for change as a street statue performer by day, trying to write the perfect novel by night. His roommate and best friend, Parker, is an aspiring rap artist, but he's having some trouble rocketing to stardom. In the meantime, he's running late, goofing off - and oh yeah, he has a van if you need help moving. Together they brave the scary elements natural to being late "20-something" single artists in the city - and through the blood, sweat, tears and humiliation, they each come to realize that what they truly have is each other.
