AOL Announces New Original Series Starring Steve Buscemi, “Park Bench”

AOL and Steve Buscemi have teamed-up to take over the streets of New York in the new original series, “ Park Bench,” – a local’s take on the special people, places and spirit of The Big Apple.

Through unscripted moments and conversations with average New Yorkers – as well as Steve's celebrity friends – Buscemi takes viewers on a first-hand misadventure. Discussing everything from pop culture to current events, the show, produced by Olive Productions and RadicalMedia, will convey Steve’s relationship with New York and its array of one-of-a-kind characters – taking viewers beyond mere interviews and involving them in his daily life.

Currently starring in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Golden Globe winner and Emmy-nominated Buscemi has become one of the most recognizable and well-loved actors in recent history and will bring his personal blend of comedy and styling to Park Bench.

“Having lived and worked in New York my whole life, I’m ready to take advantage of all it has to offer,” said Buscemi. “I just need to lay down for five minutes.”

AOL, in line with its dedication to original premium video content via their “AOL Originals” platform, will carry the first season of Park Bench online in the United States.

“We're excited to include Park Bench as part of our new slate of AOL Originals,” said Gabriel Lewis, Head of AOL Studios & AOL Originals. “We strive to produce and showcase programming that captures unique and authentic personalities, and this series will give audiences a glimpse into Steve's world like they've never experienced before. We're confident Park Bench will delight our existing audience as well as appeal to audiences currently unfamiliar with AOL Originals."

FremantleMedia International has partnered with RadicalMedia to bring Park Bench to the global Television market and will be shopping the series to international buyers at MIPTV this spring.

“Park Bench is a superb one-of-a-kind, eccentric show, and with the association of Steve Buscemi, top producer RadicalMedia and innovative platform AOL, we’re delighted to be taking this series worldwide,” said Hayley Dickson, Vice President, Television Acquisitions and Development, Global Content, FremantleMedia International.
