Who is Nupita? And how shady did she get at her screening in Wicker Park, Chicago?
In her pilot for Open TV Presents she is the alter ego of Curtis (Mister Wallace), cast out of her relationship with Reyes (IamKiam Studios), because their new lover, Gia (Saya Naomi), is moving in and Curtis can’t afford to move out. Curtis creates Nupita to diffuse the tension.
#NupitaObama is also our most fabulous self, the diva ready to headline any event last minute, commanding the stage and crowd! She took over Chicago during July and introduced herself to the neighborhoods of Lakeview, Wicker Park and Pilsen!

Open TV Presents is designed to test the production, development and reception of queer television through a series of pilots about artists exploring alternative relationships. Come watch the artists debut new performances, then watch the episode and tell my graduate assistants what you think. Feedback matters both to the scholarship and as we work to develop more episodes.
