We are still searching for our perfect writer! We have it narrowed down to two wonderful people and hope to have the perfect person chosen soon. We’ve thrown around some really exciting ideas which makes me chomp at the bit to get started filming. It’s going to be a great show.
So excited to work with co-producers and co-actors Lisa-Marie Newton and Anne Hallinan on this web-series. We’re still working on the concept, but want to share my journey with you. I will be writing about it 2x/month, so if you’re interested, be sure to sign up for my mailing list.
