Sophie Brooks, writer/director of The Boy Downstairs, speaks about how she sees a first date, confusing social agreements, and the importance of food in building a relationship with family and friends. Improv from Matthew Shear, sweater girl Zosia Mamet, the performances of Arliss Howard, Sarah Ramos and Fabrizio Brienza, flashbacks and visual cues, dry cleaners, and filming in Prospect Park, Brooklyn round out the final chapter of our Valentine's Day conversation.

Anne-Katrin Titze: Diana and Ben's first date takes place in Prospect Park with the Boathouse in the background. They don't have rowboats there.

Sophie Brooks: Correct.

‘Simple Pickup’ Bags 30k Subs in Under 3 Months

Summer is right around the corner—and as DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince explain in their anthem dedicated to summer madness, “the weather is hot and girls are dressing less.” So fellas, it’s time to dust off your game and get to work. But if you’re feeling a bit rusty, don’t worry, Simple Pickup has got your back. The new series on YouTube, reminiscent of DIGITs (now trying out a ‘softer side’ since the departure of the series former host Italian male model Fabrizio Brienza) features a charming trio—Jason, Jesse, and Kong—as they shamelessly (and most of the time unsuccessfully) hit on girls and catch the rejections on camera. Each episode, released every other Wednesday, is based on some particular parameter or premise: “Clowns Pick Up Girls,” which features the boys dressed up in ridiculous outfits, “Guys in Wheelchairs,”which is pretty self-explanatory,

15M Views Later, ‘Digits’ Tries Softer Side, Spinoffs

We first wrote about Digits the week it launched last fall, amazed at the spectacle that was a real life Italian male model (Fabrizio Brienza) trying shamelessly to score phone numbers of New York City ladies. Sure, it was a little odd and perhaps a little creepy, but not surprisingly Now some 15 million YouTube views later, as Digits gets its third season under way, the show has a new host, new look and even its own spinoff series. They have shed the slightly creepy middle-aged model for young German-British YouTuber Colleen Prietz (aka ThePickupChick). Technically this is the show’s second host switch, trying out Lesley as a female version of a streetwalking pickup artist. At the time some fans balked at the replacement of cheesy Fabrizo, and the viewership numbers declined for the second season. But four episodes into the third season, the viewership numbers are trending even higher

Ladies, Can I Get Your ‘Digits’?

Stop reading. Just watch the video first. This one is too good to pass up. Italian male model Fabrizio Brienza (yes, he's really a model) hits the streets of New York showing off his years of pickup artist mastery in The Digits Show which just popped up on the interwebs this week. It's beauty is its simplicity. There's nothing creepy about a 40-year old womanizer stopping 20-something female joggers, right? This little gem only has one episode out, but already blows away VH1's short-lived The Pickup Artist. Fabrizio's even has wallpapers (of himself, naturally) and ringtones of his best pickup lines—"Maybe I should question you... can I get your number?"
