Snakes & Lattes, the Toronto board game cafe, is developing a comedy web series to be released this September. The cafe has partnered with Bell Local, a group of community channels owned by Bell Canada, and independent film and television production company Really Awesome Days Productions. The show’s name is The Show.
The Show is set within a fictionalized version of Snakes & Lattes featuring estranged friends Max and James coming together to possibly make the cafe become wildly successful or rocket Max’s company “straight into the ground”.
Snakes & Lattes opened doors in 2010 and is owned by Ben Castanie and Aurelia Peynet. The cafe became a model for other boardgame cafes and bars over the past several years. The Show is the first fiction series offered by Snakes & Lattes, who also produce a podcast (“The Snakescast”), a game review video series, and a video series about starting your own board game cafe (“How to Snakes”).
