The Devil Wears Prada meets Girls in the premiere of Labeled, a new original sitcom on Brooklyn On Demand
Lindsey Goodman and Brooklyn-based Jessie Katz have written and directed the new original series Labeled through their recently launched production company Piano Factory Pictures. The sitcom stems from the ladies' own experience in working together for Prada in 2007.
Labeled premieres Monday, Dec. 14 and you can watch episodes 1-3 on Brooklyn On Demand, online and on Roku.
Labeled follows the frustrated employees working in public relations for Mirello, the most prestigious fashion brand in the world. It’s the job everyone would die for – that’s slowly killing them.
While most of their time is spent catering to A-list New York society, this group of misfit characters finds that the image they are selling at work is far more glamorous than the reality of their own lives. Bound together by a disdain for the fascist fashionistas who oversee them, they are led by the lovable lost soul Carly towards a rebellion that could ultimately change their life behind the label.
We're very proud to announce that Brooklyn On Demand has been nominated for one the first annual Brooklyn Innovation Awards!
