Docuseries, Humans of New York coming to Facebook

Over 10,000 interviews completed and counting, all accomplished by one man. What started off as a blog that transformed into two New York Times best sellers that followed with social media pages is now becoming a docuseries. Of course, it is no other than “Humans of New York.”

Creator, Brandon Stanton began his work of documenting New Yorker’s lives in 2010. With a single photograph and just one paragraph to tell compelling stories, he uploaded each feature to his blog, “Humans of New York.”  Seven years later, his blog has expanded into capturing the tales of people from 20 different countries and launched into popularity amongst social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook.

Starting next week, stories from “Humans of New York” docuseries, produced by Oscar-nominated producer, Julie Goldman (“Life, Animated”), will be released weekly on Facebook’s video viewing page, “Watch.”

After 400 days of filming and conducting over 1,200 interviews, the project will be condensed into twelve, 30-minute episodes and based on the same intimate and candid conversations with strangers told on his blog.

With the popularity established on Facebook that has gather over 18 million followers, the docuseries is being used to fund the video page, that contains both shorts and large-scale projects such as the “Last State Standing.”
