LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Actor-Writer Sofia Gonzalez and Lift Off Pictures today announced the upcoming release of a 6 part web-series comedy.
"We Need toTalk" is about six romantic breakups, based on true stories, written and performed by Sofia Gonzalez (see WNTT trailer here).
All episodes were filmed, directed, and edited by Jaime Gonzalez of Lift Off Pictures.
Comedian Sofia Gonzalez was inspired to create the series after she attended a dinner party where the topic of conversation turned to bad breakups. "We pretty much realized that I had the most outrageous and funny stories at the table. My actor friends encouraged me to produce the six web episodes," Ms. Gonzalez said.
Teaming up with her brother, director Jaime Gonzalez, they produced "We Need To Talk" (#WNTT).
"We were extremely fortunate to cast some of LA's most accomplished comedians. All six episodes will be launched at once, in late June. The online release will occur simultaneously with a L.A. premiere red carpet event," Mr. Gonzalez added.
Episodes, for example, feature the boyfriend who took Sofia to Starbucks to tell her he got someone else pregnant; the charming actor who insisted she still recommend him to her talent agent even though they were parting ways; and the woman with whom she accidently went on a lesbian date with to see The Vagina Monologues.
Sofia has had some bad luck in terms of romance, but great luck in terms of hilarious break ups. Her hope is that these stories will help similarly affected viewers heal through laughter.
