Jason Mewes has been very busy lately. We know him from cult classics like “Clerks” and all of the Jay and Silent Bob”projects, and earlier this year, Will Harris spoke to him about new TV projects. Now, he’s starring in a new and innovative online TV project on Chill.com called “Vigilante Diaries,” a high energy, fast-paced ride into the dark world of vigilante justice with plenty of guns and blood. The show also stars the lovely Jessica Uberuaga, who you can see in the slideshow above. You can check out the trailer below.
We’re seeing a revolution in how TV shows are produced, with Netflix changing viewing habits and now also shaking up the landscape with original programming. We’re also seeing online TV shows catch on through sites like YouTube. Chill.com is pushing the envelope even further with “Vigilante Diaries,” as the first two episodes have been produced, and now they’re asking the audience to help in getting a full season made. If they reach their goal of $50,000 in paid downloads in 30 days, they will start shooting the new episodes right away. It’s pretty simple – if they find an audience, that audience will help keep the series alive. With Jason Mewes in the lead role, sexy co-stars like Jessica Uberuaga, and an edgy storyline with plenty of action, the prospects look pretty good.
We’ve been fans of the beautiful Joy Bryant since she appeared in “Antwone Fisher” and we’ve enjoyed watching her have a successful career in Hollywood. Now she’s taking on a new project with “Across the Board,” a new web video series produced by Reserve Channel, an original YouTube channel. It’s an action talk show hosted by Joy where she dives deep into conversation with celebrity guests while they board around. In the episode featured below, Joy invites her “Parenthood” co-star, Erika Christensen, for a day of paddle boarding and girl talk. The duo discuss Christensen’s beginnings as a child actor, her role as a teenage drug addict in “Traffic,” being a curvy woman in a pencil-thin business, and her faith as a Scientologist.
We were sold on this as soon as we saw the two of them in bikinis, but the interview is excellent as well. We think Joy is onto something here. Check it out and look for new episodes as well.
