Social Peephole Web TV Show with @DigitalKadi on Mingle Media TV 10/25
Meet Carol Ann McCracken, Star of McCracken Live! the Next Queen of DIY TV
There’s nothing more entertaining than watching an immaculately coiffed Do-it-yourself TV show host who has to tap dance her way through a series of mishaps on-set while keeping cool. Carol Ann McCracken’s sharp tongue can be heard in clips not meant for broadcast in this original web series created by Brian Beacock and JohnYvelington.
Viewers will watch as Carol Ann aka Tyler Hanson tries to keep her composure amid crazy fans, failing marriages, frantic co-workers, a meddling mother, a struggling cable network, and an epic scale identity crisis while wearing six-inch high heels! McCracken Live is the newest edition of comedic webseries on Mingle Media TV, where we know that anything can happen on LIVE TV. As the series creators say… Stir ‘til boiling and put it on live TV and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
In the spirit of Halloween – we invite you to join Carol Ann in the Kitchen for her Halloween Special!
