NEW PILOT ALERT –
On Sunday, July 1, 2012, Nina Holiday Entertainment teamed up with Bobbcat Films and ECH Productions to produce a new television pilot presentation entitled, GALS. Created and written by Cas Sigers-Beedles and Terri J. Vaughn, Founders of Nina Holiday Entertainment, GALS is a show about four, foxy women over 50 who used to be one of the hottest girl groups of the early 80s, “Ladies of Essence.”
Fay, the boss of the group, became a First Lady and started singing for the Lord after the group disbanded. Ava, very conservative and proper, married rich and became the Dutchess of Sardinia. Leona, Eco-friendly and calm, is a single mother trying to put her son Hunter through college. Cleo, the youngest at heart, continued singing over the last 3 decades, and won a Grammy in 1990, which she lets no one forget. Though Fay and Ava are sisters, and they’ve all been friends for over thirty years, the individual personalities of these women are as different as night and day. GALS proves to audiences that 50 is the new 30. These ladies are stylish, sexy, and smart.
In the pilot presentation, the group is reunited after the passing of their manager, Ollie, only to discover he has set up a pending reunion tour and left his very nice, sprawling mini mansion to his pride and joy, the original members of “Ladies of Essence.” GALS stars America’s favorite veteran sweethearts: JoMarie Payton (Family Matters, From This Day Forward), Valarie Pettiford (Half and Half, Jumping the Broom), Anne-Marie Johnson (In the Heat of the Night, Uncorked), and Sheryl Lee Ralph (Moesha, and the original Deena in Broadway’s Dreamgirls).
