tellofilms Presents Season Two of the Popular Web Series #Hashtag
January 20, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsJanuary 20, 2015 - tellofilms, the prolific creator of quality lesbian and queer content, proudly presents the second season of the popular web series "#Hashtag." From inappropriate selfies to OK Cupid intrigue, "#Hashtag" follows the love lives of two technology-obsessed best friends in Chicago. After leaving fans hanging at the end of season one, tellofilms will release the highly anticipated first episode of season two on January 18, 2015 at 11 a.m. PST.
In "#Hashtag" season two, friends Liv & Skylar try to reconcile the impulse to over share with a chance at true connection. While Skylar combats heartbreak by pursuing Internet fame, Liv juggles her #IRL girlfriend with an online flirtation that's about to get just as real. They may have mastered the #follow, but will they #fail at the follow through?
Written by and starring Caitlin Bergh and Laura Zak and directed by Christin Baker and Jessica King, the new season features the on-screen return of Marnie Alton, Remy Maelen, and Kate Black-Spence. It also adds the talented Stefanie Sherk and Heather Chrisler to the "#Hashtag" ensemble.
Naming "#Hashtag" one of the "15 Women-Driven Web Series that Could be the Next 'Broad City'" 'IndieWire' wrote: "the series is a great showcase of [Bergh and Zak's] different comedic styles. Bergh's character is bubbly, warm and a little oblivious where Zak's is sardonic and skeptical. They're a pleasure to watch."
Bergh and Zak, both former Chicagoans who have relocated to Los Angeles, returned to their former home last summer to shoot the new season. Zak spoke of the continued partnership with tello: "We are grateful to tello for giving us the chance to apply what we learned the first time around toward an even stronger, funnier story-line, and even more compelling characters in the new season. As our protagonists grow and change, we develop as filmmakers alongside them."
"I can't wait for audiences to watch season two," added Bergh. "We took everything that fans loved from season one and brought it to the next level. There are twists that no one will be expecting."
