LET'S HELP OUT A COUPLE OF LADIES!
Alexandra (Aphrodite in Xena:WP) Tydings and Claudia Christian (Babylon-5) need our help. They are pitching a kick-hinder action-adventure TV show to MGM on Tuesday July 24 (it was originally for Thursday before, but it was rescheduled).
Their pitch is a time travel show called Hourglass. There are two critical things about this show: (1) it is about TWO WOMEN having adventures side by side (sound familiar?) -- not a woman and her MALE sidekick or not a guy and his feisty female sidekick; and (2) it is being created by women -- not some guys who thought it would be cool to have a female hero, etc etc). They got their foot in the door. What can we do to help? Go to their website (http://www.hourglass1.com/) right NOW. They want to get as many visitors as possible before the meeting on Thursday to show MGM that (1) there is interest in two women helming an action-adventure-fantasy show, (2) there is interest in Tydings and Christian doing such a show, and (3) that there is interest in doing a time travel show (okay I am a geek, I looove time travel shows and it is painful to watch 7 Days...okay???).
We love our action-adventures, and we love them MORE when they are intelligent women doing intelligent but fun action-adventurey things.ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CLICK RIGHT HERE. You can look at the site or not. It's fun. But the important thing is that this is a vote you can make to show MGM that chicks do not need male sidekicks...we want some chicks to have chick sidekicks. Anyways, please, this is a time where WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
So help out these ladies and allow ourselves to get some quality kick-hinder shows! Click away. Please.
