Mariann Aalda & Iona Morris
Mariann Aalda is a Mid-life Everywoman who has struggled through and survived all the stages: first wife, second-wife, ex-wife, mother, step-mother, working mom, stay-at-home mom, daughter, daughter-in-law, daughter-out-law, parental caregiver, mid-life orphan, empty-nester -- and now, mother-in-law, grandmother (or "Nana," as she prefers to be called) and divorcee. With the theatrical production of "MOIST! -a "sexistential" musical-comedy, which she co-wrote & co-stars in with Iona Morris - preparing to open Off-Broadway in 2009, she's also a "Sex & the Single Girl" poster child for the divorced, middle-aged woman -- a modern-day "Mary Richards" ...with a little more baggage and mileage on her. She's also very, very funny...with a built-in daytime and prime-time TV fan-base. Reality TV- Hilarious 30-minute episodes following the real life of actress, Mariann Aalda, as she traverses the tricky career terrain of transitioning from ingénue & leading lady to leading lady & "old broad" while also attempting to create a new personal life, post-divorce and empty nest. It is an expansion of the webcom, which would be running concurrently. Sitcom- Hilarious (continuing the theme) half-hour scripted sitcom. Like the sitcoms based on the comedy of Bill Cosby, Ray Romano and Roseanne, it is based on situations from the real life of Mariann Aalda outside of show biz...with the expectation that this show will meet with similar success.
