Kenny stars in Mayne Street online

From ESPN: to Stream First Original Web Series Mayne Street

Kenny Mayne Stars; Plays Himself

For the first time, will stream an original scripted series titled Mayne Street starring ESPN personality Kenny Mayne and a cast of characters featuring special guest appearances. Mayne will play himself in a fictionalized version of life at the center of sports television. Mayne Street will launch November 11 and was shot in and around Bristol, Conn., and New York City.

The ESPN veteran known for his dry wit and offbeat sensibilities, maneuvers through each of the 15 three- to five-minute webisodes in the kind of clever and entertaining style that has made him one of ESPN’s most popular personalities. Mayne’s re-occurring foils consist largely of his fictional production crew which includes his producer, Sarah (Alison Becker); cameraman, Video Cowboy (Jon Glaser); production assistant, Jordan (Jordan Carlos); network executive, Mintz (Ben Schwartz); Mintz’s right hand, Robin (Aubrey Plaza); as well as other ESPN personalities including Scott Van Pelt, Neil Everett and others.
