Manhattan, NY, October 11, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Three New York actors -- Norm Golden, Joan Barber, and Jon Freda -- have teamed up with director Jason "JSOK" Sokoloff to create a new web series, “50 To Death” about the life and times of three boomers trying their best to live life to its fullest. Luke Crowe, National Casting Editor of Backstage Magazine, sums it up: “Like a wistful, comedic cross between Larry David's brilliant "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" and "Manhattan," "50 to Death" may eventually prove to be a must-watch series for actors and Baby Boomers everywhere.”
The pilot episode “Norm’s Thesis” lays the groundwork for the series. The “50 to Death.com” web site also sports a snazzy draggable Flash interface with new webisodes, in the 4-6 minute range, debuting every three weeks.
Golden, Barber, and Freda are all members of AEA, SAG, and AFTRA, with extensive resumes spanning theatre, film, television, and commercials. Golden is an experienced director and acting coach who had a career as a high school and college theatre teacher; Barber is a Broadway performer and a popular voice teacher; Freda is an actor, writer and licensed psychologist; and Sokoloff is an experienced director from the NYU graduate film program who has done stand-up comedy and art direction, as well as film production and marketing.
