August 1, 2012 - This month, the “Made in NY” Marketing Credit showcases a collection of independent films and a new comedy series. Advertising for the productions will be seen in subways, on bus shelters and in Taxi-TV.

In “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” premiering on FX on August 9 at 11pm, the commentary and sketch comedy show will take on politics, pop culture, race and other topics of the day.
