Elena Melener Launches New Series ‘The Mom List’ Showcasing Mommyhood and Margaritas


Being a Mom is hard work. And, many of you make it even harder by setting goals about Mommyhood that you’ll probably never be able to reach – nobody could.

That’s exactly what actress Elena Melener is about to take on with her new comedy series The Mom List. Launching today on Facebook, The Mom List offers up some homegrown shenanigans that every Mom (and Dad) will be able to identify with.

A Mother of three, Elena created the series as a way to stay creative, but also to showcase “one of the hardest roles anyone could ever play.” Based in New York, she has been a working actress and voice-artist for years, including voicing the cute Snuggle Fabric Softener bear and Robot Reba on the kids show, The Backyardigans.

Marieve Herington and Beth Curry Turn Wedding Bliss into Belly Laughs with 'Pleasant Events'

In case you didn’t realize it, we are right smack in the middle of Engagement Season. Beginning Thanksgiving and extending through Valentine’s Day, someone you know is very likely to pop the question.

So, what better way to celebrate than with the new original comedy web series Pleasant Events. Take a tactless ex-wedding planner stuck in the 90’s along with her sweet but inexperienced niece and you get laugh-out-loud wedded bliss.

The 10-episode series comes from Actors/Creators Marieve Herington and Beth Curry, who came up with the idea from their own experience as singers in wedding bands. Previously, Marieve has become known for playing quirky characters on TV sitcoms and for voicing the cartoons Ice Age, Lion Guard and Doc McStuffins; while Beth shined on Broadway in Legally Blonde: The Musical and starring on tour in Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein.

Actress/Creator Kincaid Walker gets intimately funny in new web series ‘Hug It Out’

Families do it. Friends do it. You and your bro’s do it (sorta). Now, total strangers are getting their hug on from you guessed it -- professional cuddlers.

This new strangely intimate occupation is what motivated actress and creator Kincaid Walker to create her new comedy web series Hug It Out. She’s also brought along a lot of very funny people to snuggle up with during the 6-episode series.

Since I’ve never been much of a hugger myself, I caught up with Kincaid Walker to find out more.

New Comedy Web Series Declares 'There Are No Second Takes in Life...Take 2' -- just kidding!
Born out of the fear of filmmaking, the new original comedy web series There Are No Second Takes in Life…Take 2 is anything but fearful. Sketch comic and actor Stephen McNamee created and stars as a down-on-his-luck actor who records all the pitfalls and roadblocks of his career right from the safety of his own apartment.

Stephen took an interesting approach to overcome his filmmaking fear. He decided to do pretty much everything himself. That’s right -- he shot all 38 episodes without using any crew behind the camera. Aspiring to be more than a simple vlog series, he did bring in 23 actors and 17 bands to share their talents throughout the project.

To entertain fans further, Stephen has also created special interstitial segments as a companion to the series. These include episodes of his original mini-series The Powerpuff Girls: The Teen Years; along with Famous Meet-Cutes In ...Read more

New Comedy Web Series 'WingWoman' Picks-Up Plenty of Role Reversing Laughs


We all know the traditional pick-up situation. A dude brings his buddy as a ‘wing man’ to assist with picking up the ladies. And, in today’s society it’s not uncommon for women to also bring their best gal-pal to help out.

But, what if a man was to rely on a woman to help him meet the lady of his dreams?

This redefinition of traditional gender roles is the premise of the new original comedy web series WingWoman (www.WingWomanTheSeries.com).

This hilarious series comes from actress/creator Victoria Barabas, who also stars as the savvy matchmaker for a hopeless romantic, played by Jackson Palmer. Keeping with the strong female leaders, Victoria brought in rising director Michaela Myers to helm the project. She also turned to the opposite sex for input, with the co-writer brother team Robbie and Joey Wunder.

I recently caught up with Victoria Barabas to ...
