This charmingly fresh and funny dramatic series from writer/director Jennifer Nash capture the moment when our world changed, and how our lives changed with it.
(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Hollywood, California Jun 28, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – The Last Saturday Night is a brand-new fiction podcast based on the true stories of people navigating through the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, domestically and worldwide.
In the first of 10 episodes, the warning signs of lockdown rear their ugly heads. As sanitizer supplies run dry and the once-bustling streets of Los Angeles are suddenly empty, Gigi (Sherilyn Fenn), a single mother of four and our narrator, is the only one among her social circle to realize that everything is about to change. Gigi decides to enjoy the luxury of indoor dining with friends one last time before the inevitable becomes official. As the series unfolds Gigi’s family and friends make life-changing decisions, leading to optimistic, life-affirming outcomes.
Led by Sherilyn Fenn, made famous for her role as Audrey Horne in the hit TV show Twin Peaks and is also known for Gilmore Girls and Shameless, the podcast also stars Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight. Best of the Best), Jennifer Elise Cox (Web Therapy), Tim Russ (Star Trek Voyager), Charlene Tilton (Dallas), Allison Dunbar (Startup, The Sopranos), Vincent M Ward (The Walking Dead), Chris Browning (The Lincoln Lawyer) and the legendary Edward Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) in his final role.
The Last Saturday Night is based on the real-world experiences of writer/director/executive producer Jennifer Nash, a professional actress, and casting director. While the entertainment industry was shutting down production, Jennifer saw an opportunity and switched her focus from film and TV to podcasts, a format that was feasible to produce remotely.
The stars aligned as Hollywood’s finest, bored and restless in self-isolation, fell in love with her script and jumped on board. Contactless delivery and retrieval of microphones were arranged. From the depths of an international health crisis, and with the help of executive producers Michael and Emily Wall of Meisterkhan, LLC, a delightful podcast was made.
“With two leading ladies in their 40’s and 50’s, The Last Saturday Night is a fresh voice for an underrepresented demographic,” says ElectraCast CEO Mark Netter. “These characters are funny, vulnerable, sweet, and often ridiculous, while remaining genuine throughout. We are delighted to be working with series creator Jennifer Nash, who has created the most positive lockdown series imaginable.”
