Hulu.com Jennifer Beals interview

This is an interview Jennifer gave to hulu.com about the Wigs series “Lauren” now available on Hulu and huluPlus

On getting involved with the project:

JB: It started a few summers ago now, I was spending some time with Jon when he was telling me about this idea he had for this channel [WIGS], Jay was there, too. All of us started to get curious about this notion of a returning veteran and I told Jon that I have been working on something similar – [the story] is about a returning female soldier and what that transition is like. I started working with my producing partner, Lauren Donner, Oren Moverman, Tony Swofford developing a project for HBO. It’s on a similar subject but not exactly.

Interview with Jennifer Beals and Troian Bellisario

Jennifer Beals

Last Monday April 29th Jennifer-Beals.com took part on a press conference call with Jennifer and Troian to discuss their second season of the WIGS series ‘Lauren’ which premieres on Youtube this Friday May 2nd with 12 new episodes.
If you followed the first season you will know that ‘Lauren’ deals with sexual assault in the military and both Jennifer and Troian want to make sure these stories don’t go unheard and although fictionalised, ‘Lauren’ is a brutally honest portrayal of the endless red tape and cold bureaucracy that many victims of sexual assault experience while serving in the military.
