“The Big O” a Twofer Web Series (Official Press Release)

Oscar Winning Screenwriter, Pamela

Wallace and Mingle Media TV CEO,

Stephanie Piche, Team Up to Produce “The

Big O” a Twofer Web Series / Feature

MMTVN is pleased to announce that CEO, Stephanie Piche, will be teaming up

with Oscar-winning screenwriter, Pamela Wallace, to producer a series based

on a provocative look into women’s sex lives, including the secrets they don’t

tell their best friends.

Online media and interactive web TV network company, Mingle Media TV (MMTVN)

announced today that CEO and Executive Producer, Stephanie Piche and Academy

Award winning screenwriter, Pamela Wallace, are producing a new (twofer) digital

web series and feature entitled “The Big O,” is a sexually focused, psychological

drama aimed at the adult female market with an emphasis on the coveted 18-34-

year-old demographic.

The Big O is a provocative, no-holds-barred look into women’s sex lives, including

the secrets they don’t even tell their best friends. The first season will have a story

arc that blends all ten, ten-minute episodes together which will be released on a

weekly basis as a web series and will also be released as a 100 minute long feature

film for distribution.

The Big O’s lead character is a beautiful female therapist in her early 40′s who helps

women with their complex intimacy issues along with her younger attractive male sex

surrogate colleague who will help the “clients” work through their phobias and

inhibitions. The “clients” are women who have issues ranging from lack of sexual

desire, inability to be emotionally intimate, or inability to have an orgasm and are

complicated by, and sometimes caused by, the men – or occasionally women — in

their lives. All of the characters are relatable to the female audience with the tone of

the episodes being extremely up close and personal, as the “therapist” has frank

and insightful exchanges with her clients one-on-one or two-on-one when the “sex

surrogate” is involved, giving the series a compelling intensity. Despite the

sometimes-sensitive subject matter, the series is imbued with hope and an

empowering approach to women while having those hooks to keep the audience

guessing about what’s going to happen next. It is the plan of the producers to create

several seasons of this series as the story opportunities are endless.

Crowdfunding and Brand Sponsorships

The production duo will be launching an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign at Noon

Pacific on Tuesday, May 7th and will offer two types of perks including perks for

brand sponsorship with exposure during the production process utilitizing the existing

social reach of the MMTVN network who has over 12K fans on their Facebook

communities, over 25K Twitter followers and are a YouTube Partner with over 3

million views. The Big O team are looking for brands who want to reach the female

audience from travel and hospitality, ready-to-wear retailers, jewelers, restaurants,

florists, auto manufacturers, home décor, technology, mobile communications as well

as hair and beauty brands. By giving supporters and fans behind the scenes access

to the production from pre to post, The Big O social / transmedia story tellers can

authentically share how the brands tie into the support of making this project possible

from wardrobe, set dressing, to hair and makeup and include CTAs, call-to-action, for

sharing links, discounts, and other benefits to fans.

Why Crowdfund?

Traditionally, a screenwriter would shop a script and sell it – in fact, that is what Ms.

Wallace has done in the past with 19 screenplays that have been made into movies,

except for this story, she wants to keep this an “Indie” project as its topic is so

sensitive in nature. She has put a lot of work into outlining the story arcs, creating

characters, envisioning the scenes and vetting the “therapy” aspect with script

consultant Dr. Kimberley Taylor, Psy.D clinical psychologist and prominent

relationship therapist, to make sure it is an accurate portrayal of how to work out the

challenges women face. Ms. Wallace is a master storyteller, she’s proven it over and

over and has wanted to create a digital series utilizing transmedia storytelling where

the subject of sex, love and intimacy can be explored without censorship and

constriction of traditional television / cable boundaries. Plus, her idea to create this

series with an overall story arc so all the episodes tie together as a feature for

distribution is brilliant.

The team is in hopes of attracting top “named” talent from the Director to the lead

actress and actor along with the other cast members (they have some amazing

women they want to work with on their short list).

MMTVN’s team hopes to start casting by middle of July, get their location

scouted/secured, have key crew on board and start shooting sometime in August or

early September. They can’t guarantee dates at this point as there are variables

including director and cast schedules still to be named, but they will keep their blog

and IndieGoGo campaign updated on their progress on a weekly basis.

If you’re in Los Angeles and want to work on this project, you can contact them at
