)-- "Guiding Light" viewers need no longer mourn the loss of their favorite stars. Earlier this year a group of talented cast and production members from the show, led by Fiona Hutchison and Tina Sloan, from the canceled daytime serial "Guiding Light" came together to establish 9after7 Productions. The independent production company announces the roll-out of its first project, a straight to DVD feature film entitled "La Lumiere." The company's primary goal is to create films, television programming and web content tailored to their loyal GL fans as well as soap opera and mainstream viewers worldwide. "We have an extraordinary opportunity to be able to tap into the incredible energy, love and inspiration which had always been the core foundation of this remarkably timeless show–– to create innovative entertainment and provide it directly to the fans. They have been the motivating force of daytime for well over fifty plus years and should not be forgotten," said Hutchison smiling. "We're, as the classic rhythm and blues band The O'Jays once said, starting '… a love train, love train… Don't you know that it's time to get on board, and let this train keep on riding, riding on through..."
The company has decided to take an inventive approach in marketing its first project. 9after7 Productions is going directly to the global consumer. By offering a Limited Edition DVD of "La Lumiere," 9after7 Productions plans to raise enough capital to cover all of the costs of the production and create seed money for numerous projects to follow. The awe-inspiring actors and actresses tentatively on board are: Beth Chamberlin, Robert Newman, Fiona Hutchison, Justin Deas, Elizabeth Keifer, Frank Dicopoulos, Crystal Chappell, Kim Zimmer, Michael O'Leary, Grant Aleksander, Orlagh Cassidy, Rob Bogue, Mandy Bruno, Bradley Cole, Ron Raines, Tina Sloan, Tom Pelphrey, Yvonna Kopacz-Wright, Kurt McKinney and many many more.
"We're unbelievably excited to be moving forward with our first venture," said Sloan. "And we're depending on the love and devotion of our dedicated fans, as well as the entire daytime community to support our work. This is an unprecedented chance for avid viewers all over the world to finally make their voices heard. What we intend," added Sloan, "is to create a new kind of light."
"La Lumiere" will be available for pre-order starting on Sunday, May 1st, 2010 at: www.newkindoflight.com.
