SERENDIPITY POINT FILMS AND BARNA-ALPER PRODUCTIONS FIND BAKO’S G-SPOT
August 10, 2004, Toronto — G-Spot, the provocative and hilarious new eight half-hour sex comedy series from Serendipity Point Films and Barna-Alper Productions announces start of principal photography on August 23rd.
Closely based on the life and romantic misadventures of Brigitte Bako, the series’ star, creator and writer. Fresh off the bus from Montreal at the tender age of 19, Brigitte landed a prized role in Martin Scorscese’s New York Stories and seemed destined for superstardom. Unfortunately this hasn’t quite yet happened. Now in her 30’s, she’s gained more than enough experience on what life is like for a single girl from Montreal struggling to come into her own in the world’s entertainment capital.
G-Spot is a frank, sexy, and hysterical glimpse into the mind of a one-time acting prodigy whose early roles in critically acclaimed films have since given way to an ever-growing stint as a late-night, B-movie star. Bako as “Gigi” is determined to make an all-out comeback: in her career and with men. Tag along with our uproarious heroine “Gigi” as she shares her sexual conquests, embarrassing auditions and various pitfalls from which she always rises, never seriously deterred, to re-define herself as an actress and as a woman.
“Brigitte is a wonderful untapped well of comic talent. This is going to be a fun ride” said executive producer, Robert Lantos.
“It has been such an incredible experience being writer and creator of my own show and I feel so lucky to have such an amazing team behind me“, said Brigitte Bako.
“I was attracted to this project because of the scripts and the opportunity to work with Robert. I used to do stand up comedy so I get funny and Brigitte Bako is a talent that people are going to be talking about.” said executive producer, Laszlo Barna .
Julia Rosenberg and Brigitte Bako are executive producers along with Robert Lantos and Laszlo Barna . Peter Lauterman is supervising producer. Peter Bray is Producer.
G-Spot is produced in association with TMN, Movie Central, a Corus Entertainment Company and W Network and is financed ty the Canadian Television Fund created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian cable industry, CTF Licence Fee Program, the Government of Canada: Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the government of Ontario: Ontario Film & Television Tax Credit.
