Summer on the lower east side, and once again our neighborhood is a film set. In the last couple days alone we’ve seen Song One and Tracers occupy the streets. Today Comedy Central is giving it a go. The network will be shooting scenes in Hell Square for a new pilot called Bad Advice from My Brother.

Bad Advice from My Brother is the latest blog concept adapted for television. Website author Jordan Pope Roush is penning the script for the half-hour project which stars comedians Reggie Watts, Miles Fisher, and Mike Castle. The Plot follows the adventures of two brothers. Per IMDB:

[There’s] Jason, the older, not necessarily wiser brother who has spent most of his post-college life chasing women and the almighty dollar on Wall Street, and Ben, his younger brother who wants to follow in his footsteps. When Ben moves in, Jason sees this as an opportunity to reflect on his mistakes and steer Ben onto an opposite path. Unfortunately for Ben, Jason’s advice is usually bad and creates more problems than solutions.
