FROM THIS EPISODE

Writer/director Sean Baker is best known for Greg the Bunny and Warren the Ape on TV. His feature film, Prince of Broadway, is gritty and stark. It’s all more similar than you’d think.

Shot guerrilla style on the streets of New York, Prince of Broadway follows the story of two men whose lives converge in the underbelly of the city's wholesale fashion district and what happens when a baby unexpectedly arrives in their lives. Part comedy, part socio-realist drama, the film is an intriguing look into the life of the hustler and immigrant community.

Baker recounts finding his filmmaker's voice, casting the film, his preparation for shooting in a local community and Lee Daniels' involvement in the project.
