CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX

Series Premiere April 2013 on Gwist TV! – 8 Episode Season 1 announced

FIFTY2&NINE is thrilled to announce the launch of a new web series, CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX, to be featured on Gwist TV (www.youtube.com/gwist). The series is schedule to premiere in late April or early May, 2013 with an eight (8) episode first season.  (**please note this is a change of date from the earlier announcement)

CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX will feature a host of New York City talent including Erica Linderman, Najla Said (Palestine), Jaygee Macapugay (Emerald Man), Christopher Kromer, Maggie Carr, Hadrian Castro, Joel T Bauer (Friends and Relations) and Stephen Tyrone Williams (currently in Lucky Guy on Broadway). Guest stars in season one include Max Rhyser (The Austerity of Hope), Carol Hickey and night-life persona Marti Gould Cummings, with additional guest stars to be announced soon.

CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX was created by Executive Producers Blake Drummond and Adam Fitzgerald (kef theatrical productions), co-founders of FIFTY2&NINE. The series will be directed by Mr. Fitzgerald with Mr. Drummond as Director of Photography. The pilot episode was written by Aubrey Benmark, Jason Michael Matthews and Brian Fountain Murray.

CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX is about the complexities we face in our past and present relationships. Set in New York City, CONVERSATIONS W/ MY EX focuses on three ex-couples (one gay, one straight and one lesbian) and their varying levels of modern interconnectedness. From owning a business together to trying to avoid each other, the ex-couples must deal with the array of choices each has made to participate in (or avoid) those interactions.

FIFTY2&NINE, founded in 2012 by Adam Fitzgerald and Blake Drummond, is a film, television, web and commercial production company that strives to make high quality on-camera content with an eye toward social consciousness. FIFTY2&NINE’s first project, a PSA for the “Think B4 You Speak” campaign, won a national Talent House competition judged by The Ad Council and Brett Ratner. Fitzgerald and Drummond were honored for their work at the GLSEN Respect Awards ceremony in Los Angeles alongside Simon Halls & Matt Bomer, Marilyn & Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Bob & Harvey Weinstein.

GWIST, launched on January 14, 2013 from Logo TV founder and veteran cable and digital media executive, Matt Farber, (http://www.gwist.tv). Gwist stands for “TV With a Gay Twist,” and is designed to appeal to anyone who enjoys a gay sensibility, and will feature weekly short-form series starring established LGBT talent and gay YouTube stars. Working closely with the YouTube team, Gwist will also incorporate innovative uses of the Google+ Hangouts platform into programming.

Risks and challenges

Hey it's Blake and Adam!!!

Thank you so much for visiting our Kickstarter page - we are so passionate about this series and hope you will be too!!

GWIST is going to feature our series starting April 1, 2013 - it is a HUGE moment for us, and we are overjoyed - but also, a little scared...

We are creating this webseries on a shoestring budget - we want to produce quality that doesn't break the bank. With your help, we can finish the first season, and continue on to future seasons. We started Fifty2&Nine just one year ago, and we get a little giddy at how far we've already come. If you can help make Season 1 a reality . . . you have no idea how grateful we will be. And we promise to use your money wisely.

We know times are tough. We are doing whatever it takes to make this happen because we believe in this project. Whatever you can do, however you can help, we need you!

Love and light,

Blake and Adam
