LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- New Generation Entertainment is excited to announce the new comedy web series, "OFf & RUNNING". Season one consists of 7 episodes that will run weekly this fall. The Season Premiere will launch October 1.
Set in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier, the show follows LEIA, a bright-eyed young woman in search of her FOREVER job. With friends CHRISTIAN and MARS by her side, the three amigos embark on a series of crazy yet amazing adventures that end with valuable lessons about friends, family and adulthood.
The show's underlining message is positive and relatable: with a little determination, creativity and the help of friends, anyone can follow their dreams. Never mind a few hilarious (and unforgettable) bumps in the road along the way.
"This family-friendly show fills a major gap in today's programming," said the show's creator Cheyann Montiel Reagan. "We believe the show's positive message can help bring people together."
The show, which was created on a shoestring budget, was made possible with the help of friends, family and fans. Often, Reagan used Facebook to recruit extras, promote open casting calls and even tapped into the creative talents of fans with a contest for the show's official poster.
"The fact that we could create an entire web series with no major funding reinforces the show's message: With some hard work, determination and the help of others, anything is possible!" said Reagan. "Now that we're making our dreams come true, we want to inspire others to do the same."
As part of the show's grassroots promotional campaign, the cast conducted a month-long motivational tour, where they screened teasers from the show's YouTube channel at nearly a dozen local schools while talking to students about the importance of never giving up on their dreams.
Leading Actress Emma Caltrider and Show Creator Cheyann Montiel Reagan are now being featured on the Social Network Show (www.thesocialnetworkshow.com) with Jim Nico and Dr. Jane Karwoski.
The season premiere of "OFf & RUNNING" can be viewed beginning October 1st on www.YouTube.com/OffandRunningWeb.
