Starbucks Teams Up With Three ‘Simpsons’ Writers For Its Second Web Series

22 December 2016 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Starbucks’ first branded web series, Upstanders, was an inspirational look at people who are difference-makers in their respective communities. The coffee chain’s second digital show, on the other hand, adopts a very different tone. It’s called 1st & Main, and it consists of short, animated vignettes set within a Starbucks establishment.

The brains behind 1st & Main are John Frink, Joel H Cohen, and Rob Lazebnik, all of whom have written episodes of The Simpsons. For their work with Starbucks, which they produced through their studio Tolerable Entertainment, they sketched out a few amusing stories that use some of Starbucks’ signature elements as plot points. The first episode, for example, imagines what would happen if a couple chose their baby’s name from among the ones shouted by the barista at their local coffee shop.
