Winter TV Preview: Washington Heights

Washington Heights, MTV
Premieres Wednesday, January 9 at 10/9c

Not since Broadway’s Tony-winning In the Heights has New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood garnered so much attention. But that’s all about to chance with MTV’s new docu-drama series. Filmed in the Dominican-heavy neighborhood, the show follows nine friends, several of them Latino, who take on every challenge life throws at them as they pursue their ultimate dream careers. The show features an aspiring fashion designer, a baseball player with big league dreams and hopeful hip-hop artist.
