HOORAY!


Below is a copy of the official press release that just went out... If you want to see the special "message" video, click here.

I'm so excited, I can't even tell you... It's such a privilege to get to do this show, and the fact that the network and the viewers want us to come back for another season is a tremendous compliment.

To all of you who have supported this show, all I can say is: THANK YOU.

Thank you for watching on tv, thank you for downloading the episodes, thank you for taking the time to contact Logo and Showcase with your feedback, thank you for emailing them to ask for a second season, and - especially - thank you for your kind thoughts and words of support throughout this process. I'm looking forward to posting about what goes on in the making of a show's second season (and yes, I'm sure it will involve epic amounts of coffee and vanilla creamer). And more than anything, I'm looking forward to delivering a kick-ass season 2 that you will all enjoy.

Again, thank you.

LOGO GREENLIGHTS SEASON TWO OF EXES AND OHS WITH SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM STARS MICHELLE PARADISE AND MARNIE ALTON
Greenlight news comes on heels of release of Exes and Ohs: The Complete First Season DVD

New York, NY – May 21, 2008 – Through a special video message posted by Exes and Ohs stars Michelle Paradise and Marnie Alton at Logo’s AfterEllen.com, Logo today announced the greenlight of season two of Exes and Ohs, the first-ever scripted comedy about lesbian friends and relationships for a basic cable channel. The eight-episode, half-hour scripted series – based on the short film The Ten Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide – will premiere in early 2009.

The announcement, made by series creator and star Michelle Paradise and co-star Marnie Alton, is now available for viewing at AfterEllen.com, the nation’s top-ranked lesbian-themed website, which helped propel Exes and Ohs’ first season success through video blogs about the show and a powerful community of fans who shared in the show’s experience. The news was announced on the heels of the availability of Exes and Ohs: The Complete First Season DVD at retail stores and at the shop at LOGOonline.com.

Exes and Ohs follows the adventures of Jennifer (Michelle Paradise), a documentary filmmaker and her search for Ms. Right, telling the story of lesbian survival in life and love in Seattle, WA. Jennifer tries to keep up with the high-drama dating world, fulfill her creative ambitions, avoid the danger of professional and romantic complacency and embrace the “rules” of lesbian life, love and community.

Jennifer is surrounded by a group of close and diverse friends: Sam (Marnie Alton), was Jennifer's first love but is now her fun-loving, commitment-phobic ex-girlfriend; long-time partners in love and business Chris (Megan Cavanagh) and Kris (Angela Featherstone) are trying to run a home-based pet accessory enterprise while overrun by pets with whom they’re too in love to give up for adoption.

Exes and Ohs will air on Logo's 24/7 television channel and significant features will be available at AfterEllen.com, home of the exclusive Exes and Ohs video blog and the largest and only community of Exes and Ohs fans. Exes and Ohs Executive Producers are Michelle Paradise, Lee Friedlander, Billy Grundfest and Blueprint Productions (Noreen Halpern & John Morayniss).

Yay!

Okay, for that you get an interesting random language tidbit...cuz i gather you dig languages, too.

Here goes...Lloyd and Floyd are actually the same name (Llwyd orig. in Welsh). English speakers have problems producing the lateral so we ended up with two variations trying to mimic the Welsh. Break that out at your next happy hour! Congrats. Of course it just dawned on me that you may know this already...if that is the case please pass on to another linguophile ;-)
