This week's segment continues a series on lesbian webseries which started last week with my interview of Angela Robinson and Alexandra Kondracke from "Girltrash!". Since 2002, Tina Cesa Ward has won awards for both her stage direction and her short films, but her biggest claim to fame may be her creation of "Anyone But Me", the hit webseries about a teenage girl trying to adjust to a move to the suburbs and, more importantly, away from New York City and her girlfriend. The series is currently in its second season on the Internet, and Ward has been its director and co-author from the very first episode. In that time she has earned Best Writer and Director nominations for the 2010 Streamy Awards, while the series itself has picked up honors for Best Writing and Best Drama at the 14th Annual Webby Awards and a Best Actress in a Drama Streamy for Rachel Hip-Flores. Our interview will touch upon all aspects of the first two seasons, including the series development, the advertising campaign, and the future for Vivian, Aster and Sophie. We'll also talk about Ward's other directorial efforts and what may be in store for her next.
