Perched on the 9th floor of The # 3 West Club overlooking Rockefeller Center invited guests were the first to learn about the first venture of Broad Street Pictures, LLC.  Broad Street Pictures is founded by Alysia Reiner and Sarah Megan Thomas. Producer/Actress Alysia currently plays the roles of  Fig in the wildly successful Netflix drama Orange is the New Black and D. A Parks in the new Shonda Rhimes ABC hit How To Get Away With Murder. Philadelphia's Sarah Megan Thomas is the executive producer and writer of the movie Backwards, now available nationwide in stores including Walmart and on most on-demand services. She also starred in it. Both of these ladies have substantial resumes of acting roles in familiar shows.

These two females are making a name for themselves in Hollywood, a place still male-dominated. The party was a launch for their new film about women in business, Wall Street to be exact. Guests also met writer Amy Fox, who wrote the movie. Fox recently had her play, Heights, adapted as a feature film. It starred Elizabeth Banks, Glenn Close and James Marsden. It premiered at Sundance and was released nationwide. Amy said "I did a lot of research" for this new script for Broad Street Pictures. She also teaches at NYU.

Guests mingled with Alysia, Sarah and Amy as well as other guests. Alysia's husband David Alan Basche, who plays  on TVLand's The Exes, was happy to chat with guests. Other stars mingling with guests in support of their friends Alysia and Megan were Carrie Preston of The Good  Wife. Margaret Colins (Backwards, Gossip Girl, As The World Turns), Beth Ehlers (Guiding Light and All My Children) and Amir Arison (The BlackList, Zero Hour, Law and Order SVU), among others.

Good luck to this dynamic duo on their first collaboration. These two females should be quite a forward force in Hollywood in years to come, Is Pink the New Blue?
