Popular Series Hollywood Girl in Production for Sophomore Season
In Hollywood, "The Road to stardom is full of missteps"
Los Angeles, CA February 9, 2012- Independent production company, La Dolce Zito Productions, announced today that the popular Web Series, Hollywood Girl, is currently in production for its second season. If you haven't heard of the series yet, the show goes something like this, if Entourage, Sex and The City and Friends had a baby, it would be a "Hollywood Girl".
From Executive Producers Courtney Zito and Taryn Teigue, Hollywood Girl follows the comically blundering, yet inspirationally uplifting, life of celebrity hopeful, and beautiful disaster, Quinn Monroe. A self-proclaimed cliché (aspiring actress by day and waitress by night), Quinn feels her dreams of silver screen stardom actualizing as a waking nightmare of never-ending obstacles and roadblocks. Broke, tired, confused and, constantly tripping over her mark, she's literally bruised, but delightfully determined. With life, heart, spirit and the carefree, fun-loving support of her three best friends, Quinn looks past the setbacks and black-and-blues to see her shining star on the walk of fame, which to her isn't too far ahead. Or maybe it is. She is determined to conquer Hollywood, but the road to stardom is full of missteps. "Two steps forward and ten steps back," like the show's original theme song says, "She's there for life: She's a Hollywood Girl."
In 2011, after airing only four episodes, the series was selected and screened by the International Television Festival in Hollywood, CA. Courtney Zito, who plays the lead character of Quinn Monroe, was nominated by the festival as "Best Actress in a Comedy". (She lost to veteran Missy Pyle) Also in 2011, Time Warner Cable's INdTelevision, a channel dedicated to emerging indie artists of all types, snagged the series very early on for their on demand line up which is currently available on the West Coast.
After a hiatus to focus on the Production Company's other projects, the series has just started filming their sophomore season which will have 13 episodes (as opposed to six in their first season) “We are taking more chances this season, we have learned a lot and we want to take the show to the next level.” Said the show’s creator, Courtney Zito. According to Zito, They have amped up the writing, the locations, the acting, the cast, and have some notable television actors joining them in season two.
Danielle Bisutti (Last Man Standing, Hot in Cleveland, Body of Proof) will be back as Pascha Maneer, a movie star who surprisingly befriends Quinn after she tackles Pascha on the Red Carpet in season one. Ralph Cole Jr. (Dexter, Big Time Rush, Desperate Housewives) will be making a guest appearance in a hilarious scene in the new season's second episode, and Ronnie Butler Jr. (True Jackson VP, First Day, and most notably as President Barack Obama in the musical YouTube sensation "Modern U.S. President") will be joining the cast later on in the season. Details of his role are not being released at this time.
Series Cast: Shawn Ashley, Caitlin Biship, Robert Grant, Clarissa River Harlow, Kelsey Scott and Johnny Wactor. Producers: Melissa Teigue and Jon Santos.
Season Two will air in April on www.hollywoodgirltv.com and www.youtube.com/hollywoodgirltv.
12.13.11Gearing up for Season 2!
We start Season 2 production in January of 2012! We are so very excited about what's in store for Quinn and the gang in Season 2 and we think you will be too! Stay tuned...
