Man-Babies, the independent TV comedy pilot I produced (with Ruya Koman) and co-starred in (with Tyler Hollinger, Collin Smith, and Surina Jindal) won seven awards at NYC Independent Film Festival this weekend. In the TV pilot category, we took home:
BEST COMEDY, BEST ACTRESS (me! haha!), BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Surina Jindal), BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Collin Smith), BEST ENSEMBLE CAST, BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN (Kory Diskin), and BEST COSTUMES (Fern Cozine).
I also had the immense pleasure of participating in a panel hosted by Jeff Ayars about creating your own work with some of my personal heroes, Tyler Hollinger (creator of Man-Babies), Sonja O'Hara (creator of Doomsday, Astral, and many more shows), Michael Melamedroff (direcotr/producer of THE PROBLEM WITH APU), and Victor Cruz (BLUE BLOODS, creator of THE STOCK ROOM). We had a wonderful time sharing our war stories with a packed house, I absolutely love meeting and speaking with emerging filmmakers.
