Fair to say, HBO's latest series The Neistat Brothers, which debuts on June 4th, is not like anything you have ever seen before.

Each of the eight episodes spans six weeks in the lives of art-world brothers Van and Casey Neistat. Consisting of experimental shorts, the series is a comedy/drama mix with biographical vignettes such as "smuggling authentic maple syrup into Amsterdam" and "the search for Van's biological father." The brothers are known for pioneering online video content, and in that vein chose to use consumer-grade equipment to shoot and edit the show. While this is their first stab at episodic television, the Neistat brothers have made over 200 short films (including iPod's Dirty Secret, below), many of which have been shown at festivals, museums and institutions around the world. UPDATE: Here's Filmmaker Magazine. And the WSJ.
