Park Bench

Park Bench is a new kind of “talking show” straight from the mind of born and bred New Yorker and host, Steve Buscemi. Featuring a mix of surprise celebrity appearances and spontaneous interviews with people on the street, Park Bench will convey Steve’s unique relationship with New York and its array of one-of-a-kind characters.
