Snakes and Lattes TV show

Snakes & Lattes gets its own TV show

On the heels of announcing plans for a sprawling new location on College St., the latest news regarding wildly popular board game cafe Snakes & Lattes is that it's the star of a new television show.

Dubbed simply "Snakes & Lattes: The Show," the sitcom is thoroughly inspired by the staff and patrons of the cafe, as well as board game culture, which continues to rise in popularity. While the cafe in the series is fictionalized, there's no doubt as to its source material.

"I know first hand that Snakes & Lattes is filled with hilarious and genuine people that don't shy away from being themselves," explains direction Drew Dafoe. "The show hopes to capture exactly how board games help the community connect to each other and everyone who walks through their doors."

Filming for the initial episodes wraps in the next couple of days with an eye towards a September air date. The series will stream online for free, which is sure to attract some serious attention to the new location. Talk about good timing.
