"#HighlandPark" is a digital series comedy created for new media that is inspired by and set around the happenings and culture of Highland Park, CA with one main goal in mind: To spread #love, #community, #celebration.
The 5-episode pilot season includes comedic shorts touching on gentrification in the area with Juanita & Diego, where this couple is offered advice by a chola "Virgen" apparition named Concepción; Drinking with Friends about a Latino "Alice in Wonderland" fundraising party for a dog; and Basketball Diaries where two buddies chop it up over b-ball every week on dating, jealous women and chola rockers. The first five episodes are set to be released starting this fall.
The pilot series stars Jeremiah Ocañas, who is also the series creator, writer, director and producer; Wallace Carranza; Jenna Macari; Regina Gomez; Roody Bonnai; Kevin Jasso; Cheryl Umana Bonilla; Maricela Guardado; and Jeanette Godoy.
The series also includes a not-to-be-missed dance number with Highland Park's vibrancy as its back drop, choreographed by Marissa Herrera, and featuring original music by recording artist Korina López "La Dama de la Banda".
Cinematographer is Raul Leal. Produced by Gabriela López de Dennis. An original Lone Stars Entertainment production.
