Writing on his Huffington Post blog about the new episodes of his artworld soap opera series As Da Art World Might Turn, Linzy states, "The new version continues to center around Katonya, Big Feet Freddy, and Sholeva Sure's melodramatic journey through 'their' contemporary art world, but also introduces a set of new characters. It stars myself, Natasha Lyonne, Leo Fitzpatrick, Tunde Adebimpe, Sara Stern, Gabe Culver Mendola, and Steve Loff. It was shot at Arts@29 Garden Harvard, where I am an artist in residence and Linden Street Studios where my classes meet."
