SERENDIPITY POINT FILMS, BARNA-ALPER PRODUCTIONS AND BIG MOTION PICTURES FIND BAKO’S G-SPOT IN HALIFAX
May 13, 2008, Toronto, Ontario — G-Spot, the provocative and hilariously sexy comedy series from Serendipity Point Films, Barna-Alper Productions and Big Motion Pictures for Showcase Television, announces that start of principal photography for Season Three began in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Thursday, May 8, 2008. Production will continue on the eight new half-hour episodes through June 17, 2008. G-Spot Season Three will air exclusively on Showcase during the 2008/2009 broadcast year.
G-Spot Season Three will be more frank and sexy than ever as the trials and tribulations of Gigi played by Brigette Bako, the series’ star, creator and writer, continue to enchant viewers. The fun and craziness continues with Gigi, Stella (Heather Hanson), Roxy (Kimberly Huie), Rick (Ian Alden) and Livia (Stephanie Moore) and their adventures. With scandals galore and an unplanned pregnancy, their lives grow more complicated, more exciting and funnier than ever! In Season Two, Gigi kicked butt and stepped forward with both feet firmly planted in the uncharted territory of being a woman in Hollywood. In Season Three, our heroine Gigi lands a role in a television series and rekindles a romance with her high school sweetheart who encourages her to write about her life. It all seems perfect, until…
“They say the ‘third time is the charm!’” said Brigitte Bako. “We’re so thrilled to be back for a third season to further explore the lives of all of the characters—in 100% pure uncut G-Spot fashion!”
“The new season will continue to entertain and delight audiences. Brigitte’s unique style of comedy is brilliant and we also have a fabulous supporting cast. We’re so grateful to Showcase for their support and enthusiasm,” said executive producer, Laszlo Barna.
G-Spot Season Three is executive produced by Brigitte Bako, Laszlo Barna and David MacLeod. The series is being directed by Wendy Hopkins (Corner Gas), Stephen Reynolds (This Hours Has 22 Minutes) and Brian K. Roberts (Little Mosque on the Prairie). It is written by Brigitte Bako, Karen Hill and Johanna Stein.
