NEW YORK – February 21, 2012 – Oxygen takes viewers to the small, close-knit community of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and surrounding neighborhoods including Coney Island, Brighton Beach and Bensonhurst in Oxygen’s newest docu-series “Brooklyn 11223,” premiering on Monday, March 26 at 11PM ET/PT. The series provides a voyeuristic look into the lives of a group of twentysomething friends whose once rock-solid friendships have been torn apart by betrayal.
Bay Ridge was made famous by the iconic film “Saturday Night Fever” thirty-five years ago. The film's coming-of-age themes of longing for escape and rolling with a tough crowd remain very much the same today. Nothing is more important in these Brooklyn neighborhoods than loyalty, respect and family. This is the story of someone who may have broken that code during an evening clouded in mystery when one friend may have betrayed another by seducing a boyfriend. Vividly shot in a lush documentary style that showcases the urban streetscapes of Brooklyn, “Brooklyn 11223” follows the story of childhood friends Joey Lynn and Christie and their respective group of friends as they spend their summer learning about themselves, the bonds of friendship and the price of betrayal.
“Brooklyn 11223” is produced by Ish Entertainment with Michael Hirschorn, Wendy Roth, Ethan Goldman and Lenid Rolov serving as executive producers.
