The wait is over. Make haste to Bablegum.com to see the first of twenty episodes of Sex and the Austen Girl, the new web series inspired by Laurie Viera Rigler’s best-selling novels Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict. Here is the series description from the website:
Two women who have inexplicably switched bodies, time periods, and lives — one from Regency England, the other from 21st-century Los Angeles — debate the pros and cons of life and love in today’s world vs. Jane Austen’s world.
Sex and the Austen Girl was developed with Laurie by Gerber Rigler Producing and Executive Consulting and marks the first co-directing effort by executive producer-directors Brian Gerber and Thomas Rigler.
We have seen many of Jane Austen’s novels adapted into popular television mini-series and theatrical movies, but Sex and the Austen Girl is the first literary work to inspire a webisodic series. Leave it to our fellow Janeite Laurie Viera Rigler to break new ground and create a new way for Austen fans to feed their addiction. Brava Laurie!
Staring Arabella Field as Courtney Stone and Faye Masterson as Jane Mansfield, episode one, “Meeting Men”, broaches a subject that has changed more than a bit in 200 years.
There are so many new media nowadays that it’s hard to keep up. But thumbs up for this!
Am I missing something or is it really only two minutes long?
Nope. Not missing anything. They are short and sweet.
Can’t wait to check this out — just not when I’m at work, hehe. :) How fun!
