Jennifer Beals on WIGS, new YouTube channel
Web series are not a novelty in our days of high speed Internet. Usually, they are low-budget, feature relatively unknown actors and they do not create a lot of publicity, except in certain circles of fans and viewers. One good example of such web series is “Girltrash” that employed young actresses, some of whom appeared in “South of Nowhere” and “The L Word”. Though the audience was big enough, most of the viewers were the fans of both shows.
This is not the case with the YouTube’s new channel, WIGS, that will run short scripted series featuring strong female characters and employing female writers and directors. The channel will be managed by the director Jon Avnet (Black Swan) and Rodrigo Garcia (In Treatment). The series is getting plenty of publicity because they star such veteran actors like Jennifer Beals and Virginia Madsen, and popular young actors like Julia Stiles, America Ferrera, and Dakota Fanning.
