"What makes OM City really gel is Jessie Barr’s performance. Barr is like a toned-down Sarah Silverman and makes Grace an incredibly likable character that you can't help but root for."- The Culture Files
"No web show blew me away quite like Om City did this year. Not only is the clever yoga dramedy heartwarming and refreshing, but its production value rivals even the biggest budget online productions the web has to offer."- Decider
"Heartfelt and hilarious...Between Barr’s gal-next-door appeal and the series’ superb production value and soundtrack — not to mention its slew of guest stars, including Chris Messina, Maryann Plunket, Mike Godere, and James Waterston — it wouldn’t be surprising to see Om City picked up as a longer form series in the very near future. At the end of Season One’s seven episodes, we’re reminded why cable networks (a la HBO and High Maintenance) are adopting these short form gems as their own." - Decider
"Equal parts funny, charming and real..." - YOGANONYMOUS

OM CITY was created by husband-and-wife team Jessie Barr and Tom O'Brien, who are both actors and filmmakers as well as yoga teachers. Critically acclaimed indie filmmaker Tom O'Brien (Manhattan Romance & Fairhaven) directs the series. Jessie Barr stars as "Grace" and produces the series with Tom O'Brien as Maggie Cassidy Films along with Massoumeh Emami.
OM CITY began as a project that was largely self funded with additional donations from friends and family. A teaser was shot in three days with a very small but hugely dedicated cast and crew who donated their time. The next phase of the process was a successful fundraising campaign for a full season of the series via KICKSTARTER.
