Stay Tuned TV Awards which happened on June 6th. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the work of independent creators and producers. Frank Zanca and Timothy Ryder, the founders of Stay Tuned TV, put on a fantastic show to honor the shows on their site. The night was emceed by Todd Bridges, AKA Willis on Diffr'ent Strokes. Todd kept us laughing throughout the night, but I will say it was interesting timing given that Gary Coleman had passed away the week before. Regardless, he was an entertaining host and it was thrilling for me to interview an 80's TV icon.
Mingle Media TV, but attend the event. I was also thrilled to discover a funny new web series called The Actor Diaries created by and starring Kate VanDevender. I think a lot of actors here in LA can relate to her stories and laugh along with her. She ran away with Best Actress in a Comedy and Best Comedy that evening. Now, go support a new show and check out episode one:
