Earlier this year I was approached by Yeal Shavitt about her web series Split. I checked out the first episode, which was all that was available, and loved it! It is an interesting fantasy web series featuring an LGBTQ character. After watching the episode, I interviewed Yeal about the series which she created, wrote, and stars in.

Recently I had the chance to watch a very interesting and fun web series called I Gotta Be Me, which involves impersonators of the Rat Pack (if you don’t know who that is, it includes Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.), whom I love! This is an awesome web series I highly recommend watching when it is available to the public. It is also filled with a very diverse cast. Recently I interviewed director and producer of I Gotta Be Me, Steven Bloomer.

In June I went to my first VidCon in Anaheim and it was amazing! For anyone who doesn’t know what that is, it’s kind of like an online content convention–some people call it a YouTube convention, but there’s so much more out there now than just YouTube.

I enjoy discovering web series–there are so many great ones out there that more people need to know about! Recently I discovered an absolutely amazing pilot for a new web series called Intricate Vengeance! It turns out that it is from the creative mind of someone we have chatted with before–writer, actor, producer, and director Wilson Cleveland. So we took some time to chat with him about this amazing new series!

Sometimes Canada gets it right: Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Whiskey, Canadian bacon, and along with those, a unique Canadian detective television show. Murdoch Mysteries premiered in January, 2008, based on the mystery novels of the same name by Maureen Jennings, who also acts as an executive producer. The series is seen on Canadian television CBC, but through fortuitous channel surfing, it was found to also be airing on Ovation, a U.S. cable television network, under the title The Artful Detective.
