Broadway Video was shooting the new series The Other Two on Amsterdam Avenue on the Upper West Side on Wednesday. The series was ordered by Comedy Central in October last year.
The Other Two is created, written, and executive produced by the duo of Sarah Schneider and Chris Kelly. Both served together as co-head writers at Saturday Night Live, also a Broadway Video production.
The Other Two stars Drew Tarver as a 29-year-old aspiring actor and Heléne Yorke as his 30-year-old sister, a former professional child dancer. As the two siblings work towards finding themselves, they have a younger brother Chase who is an overnight internet sensation, played by Case Walker. Their mother is Molly Shannon, an SNL alum. Molly Shannon and Drew Tarver worked with Chris Kelly on his film Other People (2016).
Promoted in 2016 to co-head writers, Schneider and Kelly had been writers for SNL since 2011. Schneider has also written for Netflix's Master of None. In addition to Other People, Kelly has written for Comedy Central's Broad City.
Being the neighborhood the Upper West Side is and neighbors being neighborly, actor Richard Kind walked by the set and chatted with folks.
