New York Picture Company is a new media lab that creates ambitious work on popular platforms.
Their original work includes the New York Picture Company Show, a live late-night talk show from their bathtubs Tub Time, and the popular cooking-show parody Cooking for One: with the Crying Chef.
In addition to original comedic work, NYPC works in branded content. They have been commissioned to produce spec commercials by Anheuser-Busch®, DAILIES®, and Prevacid® and sold a commercial to Frito-Lay® as part of their relaunch of LAYS® Wavy. Their prize-winning commercials and branded short films have achieved success by marrying brand specific goals with their own unique and absurdist comedic voice to create engaging and highly shareable content.
NYPC looks forward to creating their short film, an original superhero comedy called ZERO ISSUE.
