the press release... and the title!

The network has done the official announcement of our show... which means I can now do the official announcement of our title!!!!

Are you ready? (drum roll please)

The show will be called..... "Exes & Ohs" :-)

Below are two of the pieces of the press release that I've found.

One reads:

MTV's Logo has ordered six episodes of Exes and Ohs, a scripted comedy about lesbian friends and relationships, from Blueprint Prods. Based on the short film The Ten Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide, production begins this week in Vancouver and will premiere in 2007. Exes and Ohs follows the adventures of Jennifer (Michelle Paradise), a documentary filmmaker, and her search for Ms. Right in Seattle, WA.


Another (available at http://www.advocate.com/news_detail_ektid39487.asp) reads:

Logo begins production on lesbian sitcom

Exes and Ohs, the Logo channel's new lesbian comedy series, has begun production in Vancouver, Canada, network president Brian Graden announced Thursday.

Exes and Ohs follows the romantic entanglements of Jennifer (Michelle Paradise) and her gay pals in caffeinated Seattle. One of those friends is Crutch, a wannabe rock star played by gay actress Heather Matarazzo.

The sitcom is based on the short film The Ten Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide. Paradise, Lee Friedlander, Billy Grundfest, and Blueprint Productions serve as executive producers on the show. The six-episode, half-hour series will premiere in 2007. (The Advocate)


I guess that means our shooting location is no longer a "secret," so I can now feel free to mention that, yes, we are in Vancouver... and, yes, it's raining again. ;-)

And now, back to work!!!


shooting, day 1

Wow... um.... quite a "little" gap between production and shooting where Someone (we won't name names - no blame here) didn't update her blog AT ALL!!!!

Thank you all for your patience.... It's been quite busy on this end. The past 2 1/2 weeks have been filled with script rewrites, interviews, hirings, meetings, meetings, and more meetings. It's been absolutely fantastic! I love doing this more than I can say... this (being an EP/Writer) feels like I've found my perfect niche in the Hollyworld. And today begins my other perfect niche: Acting!

Yes, folks, today is the very first day of shooting!!! I'm so incredibly excited that even though it's now 6:15am and I should be taking the towel off my head so I can get downstairs for the van by 6:30, I just had to come online and write a little post to share my happiness with all of you. :-)

But I can't be late, so I'll sign off now and take care of this little towel-on-head issue... More later, I promise! Stay tuned!

This is going to be a damn fine show... I can tell you that for sure!
