VIDEO: Ladies of TV and Broadway Respond to DJ Lubel with 'The REAL Women of LA' Parody
Happy Panda Productions presents the debut of their latest comic video sensation, "The REAL Women of LA". Intended as a parody response to comic DJ Lubel's viral music video "The Women of LA", this hilarious short features appearances by actresses from TV, Film & Broadway. Check it out below!
"If DJ Lubel's 'Women of LA' showed us the vacuous, superficial, uptight, gold-digging, status-climbing side of women of LA, we wanted to show the hilarious, fun, smart and sexy side of the REAL Women of LA who love to get it the f*** on and laugh at ourselves in the process," explains Deborah S. Craig (CW's "Hart of Dixie"), who served as Creator and Executive Producer of the piece.
"We were so excited to bring together some of the coolest chicks we know in LA to make this video," adds co-producer Milena Govich ("Rescue Me", "Law & Order"). "Because the truth is, most of us really don't take ourselves that seriously and relished the opportunity to show the fun and sexy sides of our personalities."
Along with Craig and Govich, the video features an impressive roster of talented ladies, including Broadway's Lisa Datz, Jacqui Polk, Haviland Stillwell and Jessica-Snow Wilson. Also lending their talents to the project were composer George Shaw ("Agents of Secret Stuff") and editor Mark Cope (writer/creator of "Most Popular Girls in School").
