Double Espresso

Show Summary

What exactly is Double Espresso? This is a Web Series that "caffeinates" contemporary buzzwords and phrases with a blend of word play, philosophical nonsense and politically indirect half-sense in the form of mini-sodes or espressodes (as we call them). Our mission is not to create another banal and sterile "made for television" web series. We're aiming dangerously higher, demystifying the mass media's mixed messages, satirizing corporate doublespeak, poking holes in political hyperbole and unraveling the common and uncommon usage of every day language. Double Espresso is the creation of Michael Arturo, a New York born theater professional, who has more than two decades of credits as a playwright, screenwriter, actor, photographer, videographer, producer and now a web series creator. Manuel Bermudez, a graduate of USC film, a filmmaker, actor and stand-up comic, is featured along with Arturo. With Bermudez's stand up comedic talent and Arturo's background in theater, the espressodes are animated in the style of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Steven Colbert, Woody Allen and the Theater of the Absurd. Together, the intellectual wise cracking duo debate and dissect topics that range from the recession to corporatism to identity politics to meaning of being 'Found Dead'. Produced by Norma Vega, Double Espresso marks her debut as a producer and segment director. And filmmaker/director Mark Coger rounds out the company.
