What’s left for a thirty-something washed up pop star struggling to overcome a publicly humiliating downfall? That’s the question at the center of the quirky new comedy series “RILEY” premiering this fall. The series stars actress and Executive Producer Jennifer Cetrone as Riley and Emmy® Award Winner Joe Hernandez-Kolski as Riley’s boss at her new job, an online and telephone psychic hotline. Written by award winning screenwriter Tracey Maye, the first 3 episodes of the series will go into production in late July. Visit www.rileytheseries.com for additional information.
@RileyTheSeries (Twitter, Insta + FB) is being independently produced by the boutique company From The Ground Up Productions, Inc. headquartered in Malibu, CA. Following the initial online release of the first 3 episodes (Fall 2016), From The Ground Up will seek a distribution or brand partner to assist in producing the remaining 9 episodes of season 1, which are already written.
The initial 3 episodes of the series have already been awarded several screenwriting honors including: Winner of Best Short Comedy Screenplay (Houston Comedy Film Festival), Official Selection (Hollywood Comedy Shorts Film Festival), Finalist (Downbeach Film Festival, Marqui Lights Screenwriting Awards, Aura Screenwriting Awards) and Honorable Mention (California International Shorts Festival).
The entire season 1 bible and all 13 episodes are currently complete. These deliverables are available for release to industry professionals on a case by case basis. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your request.
