ITVFest Brings The BEST Indy Entertainment to Los Angeles Now Thru Aug 5th

Last night we attended the Opening Gala and Red Carpet for the ITVFest in Hollywood. We had an amazing time and got to interview lots of great talent! While we were waiting for our red carpet correspondent extraordinaire Kristyn Burtt, (stuck in LA traffic, imagine) I personally got to do the first  interview with Eric Lange and we talked about fabulous Twenty Six Miles series (6 episodes) entered in the festival. I can personally tell you, I watched the Preview (and blogged earlier this week about it as being my favorite pick of the Fest).

Eric Lange

Eric Lange

Eric is a very talented actor that you may have seen in the IKEA branded webseries, “Easy to Assemble” with an amazing ensemble cast, has been on Lost, Weeds, CSI, Monk, Criminal Minds and many more TV shows and have just finished up two films. You can watch his interview with us on the red carpet later today on Mingle Media TV’s Red carpet report.

The series Twenty Six Miles can be seen tonight at the ITVFest screening. I highly recommend this series for you to watch (come join me tonight at the ITVFest!! In addition to Eric, John Schneider is the lead character and you can see Jessica Tuck (“Judging Amy”),  Daniel Quinn (“Without a Trace”), Tessie Santiago (“Good Morning, Miami”), Aris Avril (“Gilmore Girls”), John Billingsley (“The Nine”), Jordan Garret (“Death Sentence”), Spencer Locke (“That’s So Raven”), Hannah Dworkin (“Zack and Cody”), Diamond Dallas Page (“Wrestlemania”) and “American Idol” alumnus Kimberly Caldwell. There are also some cameos by SAG Award winner James Denton (“Desperate Housewives”), whom we also interviewed last night, Golden Globe winner George Segal (“Just Shoot Me”), six-time Emmy nominee Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”),  NASCAR champion Carl Edwards and recording stars Los Lonely Boys.

With that said… here’s the program for the ITVFest. You can also go to panels each day from Polishing Your Pitch to Getting Sponsors for your Show. (click here for schedule) Oh yeah… almost forgot, you can also watch some of the panels on our favorite LIVE streaming partner Stickam! So if you’re not in Los Angeles, have no fear…

ITVFest Starts Thursday: Do YOU Have Your Tickets?

How do I begin to tell you how excited we are to be going to the opening night and covering the red carpet? Okay, so we like to talk to celebs and producers of media we love to watch… that’s why we’re here. We love to be entertained and meet the creative genius on the nights like this when they shine so bright.

Here’s a taste (my choice) of what you can see while attending the ITVFest this year. I found a very cool preview for Twenty Six Miles >> chick-flick, feel good, yes I wanna see it Friday night…

Here’s the synopsis: Jack Kincaid could not figure out how to balance a successful career with a successful marriage. Ultimately, Jack’s wife filed for a divorce and takes the kids to Catalina. Suddenly, the man who had it all has found himself with nothing, except for an excuse to start over and re-build his dreams.

It’s no secret that Illeana Douglas, will be there, she is getting the Innovator Award from ITVFest for her work on “Easy to Assemble” (http://www.mydamnchannel.com/easytoassemble)… The expected list of celebrities includes, James Denton, Craig Robinson, Jamie Kennedy, John Billingsley, Kenny Johnson, Judd Nelson, Eric Lange, Sophie Monk, Gunner Wright, Sam Page, Candice Afia, and well… you’ll just have to wait to see our Red Carpet Report with Kristyn Burtt!

Check out the schedule and buy your tickets ahead of time at the ITVFest website.
