This morning I had a great, informational breakfast with Women in Film Los Angeles (WIF) Special Guest: ANN LEWIS ROBERTS. Ann is Senior Vice President,
Programming and Development ABC Media Group, ABC Entertainment Group/Daytime. I loved this lady as she shared her path, answered questions and gave her time. She also mentioned Babette Perry Vice-President Head of West Coast Broadcasting at IMG who is also a delight!
While at the breakfast I met Bridget & Jen from www.dogandponycreative.com
DOG & PONY is an award-winning graphic design agency. We create strategic advertising and marketing deliverables for entertainment, film, and brand clients.
I sat with two very intelligent women, Orly Arava who has a fantastic spiritual drama project she’s working on. Fascinating to hear about! Also Carrie Ainsworth http://pro.imdb.com/name/nm2111187/ Producer at E! Entertainment Television, E! News.
While the Q and A was going on Mario Lopez, Extra host and TV personality came in to do a radio show. I’ve actually met him before when he was a host on the talk show, The Other Half. I was a guest. LOL, he told me I have a great look and should be in Soap Opera’s. Hum, Mario you might be on to something. I hear my niche is comedy but would love to be in a Soap Opera! I’ve seen him at various restaurants and on a flight.
Just before leaving I introduced myself to another actress Ruth Otero Soap Opera’s who Variety Magazine chose as one of their Ten Comics to Watch. http://www.ruthyotero.com
Everyone at WIF breakfast were kind, smart, well dressed, and a pleasure to meet. I appreciate WIF for having functions like this to help all of us in the entertainment industry by providing networking opportunities with useful information.
