The creators of the new web series Bartlett are offering a second sneak peek at the musical comedy show ahead of its world premiere on Vimeo on Demand January 30. Take a look at the musical number “The Ballad of Enoch Bartlett,” starring Freestyle Love Supreme’s Anthony Veneziale and Nate Duncan from the show, in the video above.
The six-episode original comedy Bartlett is created by Martin Edwards and Chrissy Mazzeo. The show follows a group of advertising execs in Silicon Valley who fight their character flaws and fondness for dysfunction to perfect the art of the pitch, both in life and at work.
The show features a cast that also includes Lin-Manuel Miranda, White Famous’ Utkarsh Ambudkar, Emmy nominee Don Reed, Mazzeo, and newcomer Eirinie Carson.
Original songs in Bartlett were written by Veneziale, supervised by Tony and Emmy Award winner Bill Sherman, and produced by Jeremy Fisch and Joel St. Julien, who appears in the series. The show features a score by Peter Golub.
Veneziale, Ambudkar, and Miranda are all part of Freestyle Love Supreme, the improv hip hop group that also includes Hamilton’s Christopher Jackson and Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart.
“When it comes to rich topics to explore as storytellers, advertising has got to be at the top of the list,” says Bartlett star and creator Mazzeo. “From Mad Men to Bewitched to every ad we relish on Super Bowl Sunday, this is a world worthy of creative exploration.“
