SoCal Connected Buys FBLA Brunch

We were going to list the shows that have yet to feed us a meal just prior to lunch. But it would be much easier just to mention the only one who has – SoCal Connected.

They invited us, Kevin Roderick (who we missed saying hi to) and cast and crew to a screening to celebrate the beginning of their second season.

Only one season? These people have won awards for two years in a row – how does that happen?!

Speaking of which, we talked to producer Angela Shelley about the SoCal Connected coverage of the Station Fire. “We won a Golden Mike for that,” noted Shelley. “Breaking news? We’re a weekly program.” Yep, it does not speak well for our local news teams. You know…since it was the biggest fire in the history of the city and no one seemed to be able to get their pancake on fast enough to report what was going on.

Anyway, the shindig was held at the KCET studios, the oldest continually used studio in town. Most notably where Sex Kittens Go To College with Mamie Van Doren was filmed. Made back when movies actually meant things.

The second season debuts this Thursday.
