Just in time for the holidays, Crystal Chappell‘s Venice has dropped its first trailer and set a release date. (Happy Thanksgiving/Christmakkuh!)
The much talked about web series featuring former Guiding Light costars Chappell and Jessica Leccia will debut on Dec. 4 and the first teaser is enough to make any Otalia fan’s heart burst with glee.
That’s a lot of plot for 12 six-minute episodes! It’s also more lesbian affection than Guiding Light managed in many, many seasons.
In a podcast on venicetheseries.com, Crystal and Jessica talk a little bit about being handcuffed when it came to showing physical affection on GL, but they both expressed respect for their characters and gratitude for having been involved in Otalia’s love story. And they were eager to talk about this new project.
One of those gifted, enthusiastic heart-pourers is out musician Jen Foster, who wrote Venice‘s theme song, “Venice Beach,” which you heard in the trailer. (You can listen to or download it at Jen’s MySpace.)
Yesterday, Jen Tweeted: “Can I just say…such powerful, positive energy around “Venice”…Kimmy has been amazing, and I can’t wait to meet Crystal & everyone else!”
Venice really does feel like it’s infused with uncommon energy and affection. Most web series’ are labors of love, but the production value of this project seems to be amped up a notch or two.
What do you think of the first teaser trailer? Are you excited for the premiere on December 4?
