Typically at this time of year we say “out with the old, in with the new”.  But tonight on F4F Radio we kick off 2012 by having it both ways.  We welcome back the familiar voice of two-time guest Christin Mell as part of a brand-new bimonthly segment.  As co-owner of the Tellofilms website, Christin will visit F4F once every two months to talk about the newest major project launching on the site.  Tonight we will also be joined by Julie Keck and Jessica King, the two halves of the “King is a Fink” team.  Tonight’s topic will be the brand-new webseries “I Hate Tommy Finch”, starring Nicole Pacent (“Anyone But Me”) and Shannan Leigh Reeve (“Cowgirl Up”).  While IHTF, which was written by Julie and co-directed by Christin and Jessica, may have premiered last year as a stage play in Chicago, it was always intended to be much more than just a local theatrical production.  A live performance of IHTF, complete with audience and live music, was recorded and then edited for its release this month as a webseries.  If successful, the hope is that this can lead to future opportunities for people everywhere to enjoy something that was previously only available to those in a specific location.  And considering stories about lesbian characters are even today something of a precious commodity, these opportunities become more important than ever.  Our guests will talk about everything that went into making this unique production, what role Tellofilms will play in all of this, and their goals for the future.  Joining me tonight – joining me every night, in fact – will be my new cohost/coproducer Kim Pritekel. UPDATE: Co-lead actress Nicole Pacent will also be joining us!
