About

WE ARE MAKING SEASON 2!

We are so excited to make season two of OM CITY. Season one was a huge success beyond our wildest dreams. OM CITY has now been seen in more than 95 countries, we are a critics pick in the New York Times, featured in USA Today's "WEB TO WATCH" and voted "BEST WEB SERIES" by Decider.com. 

CHECK OUT A TEASER FROM SEASON 1!

Most importantly we have received so many inspiring messages and emails from around the globe from yogis and non yogis alike saying how much the show resonated, inspired and entertained and how they really want more episodes! So we are ready to go!

"No web show blew me away quite like Om City did this year. Not only is the clever yoga dramedy heartwarming and refreshing, but its production value rivals even the biggest budget online productions the web has to offer."- Decider

Our creative team is in place; writer/directors, actors, producers, cinematographers. It was a dream experience for all those involved in season one and everyone is on board and excited to go for season two.

We are looking to raise more than double what we raised for season one. Because everyone worked for free or almost free and all the locations were donated and a lot of the gear was discounted or borrowed we were able to make it on a shoestring but we can't ask for the same favors again. We want to be able to pay everyone their rate and make season two even better!

"Heartfelt and hilarious...Between Barr’s gal-next-door appeal and the series’ superb production value and soundtrack it wouldn’t be surprising to see Om City picked up as a longer form series in the very near future. At the end of Season One’s seven episodes, we’re reminded why cable networks (a la HBO and High Maintenance) are adopting these short form gems as their own." - Decider

So we need everyone's help in donating and spreading the word to make OM City Season 2 a reality!
