Our boy Phillip Jeanmarie caught up with one of NBC's cult soap Passions' biggest supporters, TV Guide's Michael Logan, to talk about life post-Harmony, including starring in Nate Golon's hilarious, Hulu.com web series WORKSHOP! Peep what Jeanmarie has to say about the difference between playing an intersexual serial killer on daytime and doing an independent TV series.
TV Guide Magazine: Workshop is very cool, very funny. How does it feel to make a series and help realize a creative vision without interference from a bunch of loser know-it-all schmoes at a network? It's the new wave!
Jeanmarie: And it's so much better than sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring. I get to go out there and act and be proactive. This is guerilla filmmaking and it's very freeing. I now feel kinda fearless. Looking back at Passions, I was overwhelmed by the intensity of the work and always so worried about screwing up and missing lines. It kind of traumatized me. I didn't have as much fun as I should have. It's a privilege to be able to act. You gotta have fun with it. READ MORE
Alright boys and girls, the day has finally arrived! The first two episodes of Nate Golon's hilarious, independent dramedy WORKSHOP have premiered on Hulu.com! In an unprecedented move, WORKSHOP is the first independent, half-hour series to be distributed on Hulu, and my business partner Luke Kerr and I couldn't be prouder to be on board as associate producers this season!
Well peeps, Luke and I have some really exciting news to share with you. The second season of Nate Golon's insanely-funny, independent TV series WORKSHOP has been picked up for distribution on Hulu! Golon, who co-created the series with Kimberly Legg, signed on the dotted line late this past week. We couldn't be happier for our boy, especially since Luke and I are associate producers on this season, so a victory for WORKSHOP is a victory for the entire Daytime Confidential/Pop Confidential family!
I caught up with Golon, who also stars in the series as struggling actor Jeff Reynolds, for an exclusive sneak peek at Season Two of WORKSHOP, which will debut sometime in mid-to-late March (Actual premiere date TBA). If you thought the first season of WORKSHOP was jam-packed with spit-out-your-vodka-all-over-your-keyboard moments for Jeff and his motley crew of struggling thesps (including Passions' alum Phillip Jeanmarie as Jeff's scene-stealing roommate Adam), you ain't downloaded nothing yet! Just wait 'till you see the arc featuring That 70's Show's Don Stark! But don't think it's all hijinks; Golon has added plenty of soapy drama this time around, not to mention soapy stars, like As The World Turns' Marie Wilson (NutMeg). If you don't believe me, keep reading and find out for yourself!
Daytime Confidential: Dude, congrats on the Hulu deal! How did it come about?
Nate Golon: Thanks so much! Getting the Hulu deal was months in the making. When we were still in production on Season Two of WORKSHOP in October 2010, a friend of mine, Canyon Prince, contacted me and told me he was running the first ever New Media Day at the Anaheim International Film Festival, and asked if I wanted to include WORKSHOP. We put together a 10-minute first episode of Season Two, and previewed it in Anaheim. I met a guy named Keith Knee, who had helped make another web series, Blue Movies, one of the most watched shows on the Internet. Keith told me he really liked the show, and though we could present it to Hulu. Four months later, with Keith's help and advice, and the help of another associate of mine, Garrett Law at Attention Span Media, Season 2 was picked up!
