Two years ago

I talked about the television show that was filming on Catalina Island and my experiences working as an extra on the production. It was fun, easy, and damn good money. I'd totally do something like that again, and considering my plans to move over to the big city and need for income, probably will!

Anyway, they filmed the first six episodes, wrapped up, said farewell, and went off to shop it around and see if any of the networks picked it up. Sadly, none of them did.  Surprised me (and others) quite a bit, because although I've only read the scripts and saw the scenes I worked in, it actually was quite a decent storyline, entertaining, and hey - you can't beat the scenery!  I thought it was far better than the last major production filmed here a few years earlier, (coughFallingInLoveWithTheGirlNextDoorcough) which was picked up (coughHallmarkChannelcough) and seems to air at least once or twice a year still.

But at long last, that television show has caught a break. It's being released directly to Hulu, so anyone can watch it online anytime they want.  The first two episodes are already up, you can see them here:twentysixmiles. So check it out and let me know what you think! 

Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for the skinny dark haired girl wandering through the background!

NO WAI! I'll definitely watch that when I get a chance.

I looked into being a movie extra but it's so hard to find an opportunity that isn't a total scam.

Arrrrgggghhhhh! Hulu hates Canada and its loose file sharing laws. :( Sigh.
