THE HOTSPOT Olive and Mocha Olive and Mocha is a Kickstarter-funded Web series produced and directed by Suzi Yoonessi and written by Molly Hale. The main characters, Olive and Mocha, are early teens effectively portrayed by young actors April Marshall-Miller and Sophia Laurelin. The series started as a TV development project for NBC. When the rights of ownership came back to the creators, four episodes were shot and then launched on YouTube. It currently can be seen on Funny or Die.
