From Salem to Northvale, NJ - The Cast of Days of Our Lives Holds Book Signing in Jersey Celebrating 50 Years on #NBC

It's hard to believe that those Salemites have been loving, scheming, serial killing, celebrating, back from the dead rising, partying, laughing, gossiping, University Hospital working, super coupling, Hortoning, Bradying, Brady's pub dining, marrying, mall-walking, mysterious drug-trying, lake house visiting, Christmas-ball hanging and oh so much more since DAYS OF OUR LIVES #DAY50 began in black and white so long ago.

Review of Winterthorne: Wonderfully Wicked and Entertaining: A Web Series To Watch

Winterthorne - Watch it.

Like most people of my generation, (I am not a millenial) I am not used to watching web series. I'am a soap gal. And a TV gal. 

But I am being enticed to the Internet because of all the soap people populating these shows.

Knowing some of the people involved in a new four part series, Winterthorne, I decided to give it a look.

Winterthorne is produced by Michael and Barbara Caruso Productions and written by Michael. Michael is a web series pioneer, known for DeVanity. Starring in this four-part mini series with Michael are Martha Madison (DOOL), Lindy Gray (Dallas), Kristen Storms (GH) Gordon Thompson (Dynasty), Kathleen Gati (GH), Josh Thrower (Seeing Past It), John Paul Lavoisier (OLTL), Kevin Spirtas (DOOL, OLTL), Ron Hanks (Golden California) and Conrad Bluth (Nickelodeon). 

It takes a bit of a change of habit to start watching web series. If you're like me, and you're used to watching TV at night, shutting off that TV (unless you are viewing it on a device) and using your computer like a television takes some planning. I decided night time after prime time was time for web viewing.

The thing about turning on a computer to watch a show is the distractions. A boob tube is just one screen, and you have to switch a channel to get distracted. So watching a web show takes some concentration. Email is just one click away.

Alysia Reiner and Sarah Megan Thomas' First Broad Street Pictures Production Equity The Movie Selected for the 2015 Creative Coalition Spotlight Initiative Film

Broad Street Pictures' new drama, Equity, the first female-driven Wall Street movie, is honored to be selected as a Creative Coalition 2015 Spotlight Initiative Film.

 “It’s exciting to see a notable female-led film being released, especially with only 1.9 percent of recent Hollywood releases being directed by women.  Not only is this the first film that showcases the executive women of Wall Street, it’s also a film that artistically and deftly weaves a thrilling tale set in the financial arena,” said The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk.  “The Creative Coalition is proud to count Equity among other notable films in the 2015 Spotlight Initiative slate.”  

Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) stars with Alysia Reiner in Equity
"Our goal was to make the best movie we possibly could that totally disrupts the way women are portrayed in film," said Broad Street Co-founder and actress Alysia Reiner. “We are thrilled to be chosen as a Creative Coalition Spotlight Initiative film," adds Broad Street Co-founder/actress Sarah Megan Thomas.

The Creative Coalition's Spotlight Initiative is an integrated partnership that champions the art and craft of independent filmmaking by providing cause-related marketing strategies and issue campaign resources that allow the film’s message to reach beyond the movie screen.  By bringing in influencers from the business, entertainment, arts, and policy arenas to support Spotlight Initiative films, The Creative Coalition is able to promote socially relevant, independent filmmaking.
