LIFE: I’M ON A SHOWTIME DOCUSERIES – “3AM” DEBUTING MAY 28TH

IMG_6031

Yes, you heard me right – I’m featured on a ShowTime Docuseries and as I type that I’m still questioning how I got here. Literally. I went from wanting to stay behind the camera when I started my career, to bending against my views on social media (see the upper left corner of my social channels, titled “Vashtie Sells Out”) to now being featured on sort of reality TV. It started in ’06 when I reluctantly started blogging and I started to meet you guys – sending me messages and me realizing that I had friends all over the world just like me! So I continued to share!

 

Anyways, Sure this isn’t your typical show and it is in fact shot beautifully, but still…I have no idea how this will turn out, but it shall be interesting.

3-am

  • Josh (“The Fat Jew”), an internet celebrity and self-described “Magellan” of nightlife in the Big Apple;
  • Kirill (“Kirill Was Here”) a nightlife photographer who gets even the most uptight girls to strip in the clubs;
  • Vashtie (“Va$htie”) a gorgeous DJ forced to deal with her troubled past;
  • Markus, a glamorous doorman and stand-up comedian who decides who’s in and who’s out; and
  • Samantha (“Abby”) a beautiful escort who longs for a more normal life but struggles to walk away.

In each episode, characters are tracked across a single night, building to a special “3am moment,” when something important and life changing happens. Stories cross not only the night but also the season. Our subjects’ lives may all be different but they all share one thing in common – a love for the wild ride that only happens at 3am. Buckle up.

 

Read the PRESS RELEASE:

Los Angeles, CA (May 11, 2015) – Ever wonder where the night will take you in the city that never sleeps? Take a penetrating joyride into the bizarro world of late-night New York City. 3AM is a high-energy documentary series that follows a cornucopia of characters – drag queens, artists, escorts, and other insomniacs, all trying to turn fantasy into reality while flaunting every rule in the book. Executive Producer Dick Wolf says, “There’s nothing like this on TV.” Anything goes at this hour, so leave all inhibitions at the door. While most respectable folks are tucked in at home, the bolder and braver outlaw set are out defying the norms of acceptable and conventional behavior in a search for love, sex, fame and notoriety that can only come as the clock strikes 3.

3AM is a docu-series that weaves together the stories of five New Yorkers – Josh (“The Fat Jew”), an internet celebrity and self-described “Magellan” of nightlife in the Big Apple; Kirill (“Kirill Was Here”) a nightlife photographer who gets even the most uptight girls to strip in the clubs; Vashtie (“Va$htie”) a gorgeous DJ forced to deal with her troubled past; Markus, a glamorous doorman and stand-up comedian who decides who’s in and who’s out; and Samantha (“Abby”) a beautiful escort who longs for a more normal life but struggles to walk away. In each episode, characters are tracked across a single night, building to a special “3am moment,” when something important and life changing happens. Stories cross not only the night but also the season. Our subjects’ lives may all be different but they all share one thing in common – a love for the wild ride that only happens at 3am. Buckle up!

 

+++++++++++

The filming was intense and at times I was just overwhelmed and over it, but I can’t believe it’s finally done and about to debut. I hope you all enjoy it, or in the very least find it entertaining. A lot of it is the me you know, but here and there I share elements of my life that are more private and revealing. Here goes nothing!
