On November 19, MOCAtv premiered the first six episodes of its new 12-part web series, “Feast of Burden,” written and directed by filmmaker Eugene Kotlyarenko and produced by galleristMieke Marple, both L.A.-based. The experimental soap opera, which borrows from John Waters and daytime television, features a group of friends preparing for and attending a dinner party hosted by the unfaithful Benjamin and his uptight writer girlfriend Mercedes. Alexis, Benjamin’s neurotic mistress who brings rat poison to the dinner, Petey, the couple’s landlord who crashes the party, and the love-starved Jimmy Yukon (played by Kotlyarenko), who can’t keep his hands out of his pants, round out a quirky cast of real-life friends and underground figures assembled by Kotlyarenko and Marple.
