Chicago 139 Productions announced that Angie Campbell has joined the cast of Staydream, taking over the role of Alex.
Born in Milwaukee, this Chicago-based actress originally studied psychology before returning her focus to her passion: acting. Ms. Campbell now pursues acting and improv full time. She has since appeared in a variety of short films and web productions, as well as the television show Chicago Fire.
Initially hearing about Staydream through a friend, Ms. Campbell was excited to audition for the role of Alex, stating, “I was immediately drawn to Staydream’s quick, witty writing and characters that felt real.”
Future episodes of Staydream are currently in pre-production.
Post-production work has been completed on the pilot episode of Staydream and the producers have set a date for the premier. Chicago 139 will make the link public on its website on December 4, 2017.
“I could not be happier with the result of the hard work we’ve put into this production,” said Dave Grundgeiger, executive producer of Staydream and founder of Chicago 139 Productions. “We set out to develop a project that is funny and that is rich in story and characters, and I believe we have accomplished that. Our inspirations are Master of None, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, New Girl, and 30 Rock.”
Fans still have time to get on the Staydream mailing list and get advance news about the ongoing production and access to special offers not available to the general public. Fans can signup on the website.
Chicago 139 Productions has launched a new website for its Staydream comedic web series, a project being filmed in and around Madison, Wisconsin.
The new website, located at www.staydream.tv provides information about the show, a look behind the scenes of the production and an inside look from the point of view of principal actor Nadia Geiger, who plays Nadia Klempner on the show.
The production is the first web series to be shot in the Madison area in recent memory and was written and filmed by a Madison-based crew. Professionals actors in the series hail from Madison, Milwaukee and, most recently for some, Hollywood.
Madison-based Chicago 139 Productions has established a writers room to begin work on a new comedic web series to be produced in the Madison area. Dave Grundgeiger, executive producer for the Staydream project, said writers have begun to meet weekly to hammer out ideas for the pilot.
“We have a great group of creatives who have come together to work on this project,” Grundgeiger said. “I’m very pleased with what we’re seeing so far and expect to have a finished pilot script within the next few weeks.”
Madison-based Chicago 139 Productions announced today that the company would create and produce a comedic web series here with the goal of releasing the pilot in 2017. Dave Grundgeiger, owner of Chicago 139 and executive producer for the Staydream project, said the series would seek out cast and crew who live and work in the local area.
“We have so much creative talent right here. I’m absolutely certain we’re going to see more and more great film projects coming out of Madison, and we want to help drive that growth,” Grundgeiger said.
Chicago 139 expects to launch a writers room to develop ideas for the pilot. For more information, contact the company.
