I am here working hard in Nashville and I have sadly neglected my little blog. I have some great posts coming this week, but let's start with the premiere of the new web series, Cursed. Cursed "is the story of an angel incarnate who struggles to reach atonement in an earthly life…a single mom who tries to complete a mission to kill the last cartel leader in an effort to prove her goodness. In her good vs. bad journey she tries to balance a heart for her loved ones with her desire to ascend."
I was fortunate enough to cover the premiere for Mingle Media TV where you can also find the entire series. It was a great evening of interviews especially since I was able to talk with the creator, Yuri Brown, about her creative journey plus insightful interviews with director, Jeff Kanew, of Revenge of the Nerds fame. Finally, for those of you who are fans of The Color Purple, be sure to see my discussion about the movie with one of the stars, Jeris Lee Poindexter, who was also Oprah's acting coach on the set! If you haven't seen The Color Purple in awhile, go see it again, it holds up, and it is one of those nominated Academy Award films that should have won. I think it really is a Steven Spielberg masterpiece.
If you want to see more of Cursed, follow the series here. If you would like to see more of the red carpet coverage, head over here. See you tomorrow on Red Carpet Closet!
