David and Hannah Cashman have promised their family a fun Christmas getaway, but when they arrive at a grand, old house in the snowy woods of Washington and are greeted by familiar construction foreman, the kids realize their parent’s plan to make it a working vacation; renovating the place in the hopes of flipping it. Alicia, the eldest, is annoyed but the younger kids are soon distracted when, wandering through the creepy mansion, they find a stash of old toys in an abandoned playroom and take to them instantly.
Before long, they seem to be inseparable from their new playthings, much to the consternation of their nanny Rose who, along with Alicia, senses that something in the house is not quite right. As stranger and stranger things start to happen, Rose and Alicia have a hunch that there may be more to the history of the old house than the Cashman’s are letting on. Can the family escape with their lives – or will they stay forever in the crumbling house, never to celebrate another Christmas again?

Historic First 24/7 Live Queer Female TV Channel Premieres Globally Oct. 29th
Revry, the first global LGBTQ+ virtual cable TV network, today unveiled the newest addition to its lineup of free linear TV channels with OML on Revry –the first 24/7 live TV channel exclusively catering to queer womxn (lesbian, bi, trans female, gender non-binary, queer, etc.).
This announcement adds to Revry’s suite of boundary-defying queer entertainment on its apps and FAST channels (“Free Ad Supported TV”)–available for free globally to over 250+ million households and devices in over 130 countries.
The OML on Revry channel furthers Revry’s mission of 360 degree LGBTQ+ representation by highlighing queer female or femxle stories in a truly “always on” environment and free of charge. This unprecedented move expands on the company’s early 2020 unveiling of its new queer-focused live, multi-channel platform–a niche twist on the growing emergence of free virtual cable TV networks such as Pluto TV, Peacock, and XUMO.
Initially launching with four FAST channels– including Revry News (the first queer news network)–Revry has expanded with today’s announcement of OML on Revry, the company’s first 3rd party FAST channel to live exclusively in Revy’s virtual cable TV ecosphere. “I’m incredibly proud of the brand we’ve built and the relationships we’ve cultivated with the LGBTQ+ community for the last decade,” shares OML founder, Shirin Etessam.
“What started as a portal to curate and share quality lesbian video content has become a powerful platform to launch, stream, distribute and promote some of the very best LBTQ+ content online. We are thrilled about our partnership with Revry as its multifaceted global platform will allow us to reach a greater audience and to make Femxle-driven LBTQ+ content accessible to an even broader audience. Truly a win-win-win for all of us: Revry, OML, and our community.”

Entertainment Professionals Launch COVID Film Certification to Reopen Hollywood Safely
“American Chopper” Executive Producer Franco Porporino Jr., along with a team of industry professionals, announced today the official launch of COVID Film Certification, an inventive program designed to educate and prepare production crews and talent on set to ensure Hollywood can resume production safely.
The program is a “one stop shop” for the safe resumption of production, including an industry-specific safety exam for production personnel, crew and talent to comply with CDC guidelines and other best practices on set, a Compliance Officer training designed for those in a supervisory role, EPA approved PPE available for purchase, and full consulting services by seasoned showrunners to create customized budgets for production EICs.
“Many producers are facing significant hurdles in light of all the complications and challenges posed by COVID-19,” said Franco Porporino Jr., creator of COVID Film Certification. “Production companies need to get back to work, but must do so in a way that prioritizes health and safety for all personnel, and with this program, production companies and studios can welcome their employees back with peace of mind, knowing that each person is fully informed on how to safely navigate production during this pandemic.”
The COVID Film Certification program features training modules that cover industry specific COVID-19 protocols and best practices for all pre-production and post-production personnel. Upon completing the course and passing the exam, all of which are administered online, test takers will receive a certificate valid for one year.
The COVID Film Certification also offers training for Compliance Officers who oversee all COVID-related health and safety issues on set. COVID Film Certification has also partnered with a private healthcare company to provide licensed registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and licensed practical nurses, eliminating the need to hire multiple compliance personnel. With this option, production companies can have professional RN or NP Compliance Officers on set.
“As we all navigate this pandemic, safety for our crews and talent must remain our highest priority, and Big City TV, along with my partners at the Content Group, were not satisfied with simply ‘meeting protocols’ for our shows,” said CEO of Big City TV and Executive Producer, Lori Rothschild Ansaldi.
“Our goal is to always go above and beyond for our clients and talent to ensure that we create and maintain safe and healthy work environments, so every crew member and talent across Big City’s entire portfolio of projects will be trained and certified by COVID Film Certification.”
Along with Rothschild Ansaldi, the COVID Film Certification’s advisory board consists of an array of industry experts, including Ra Kumar of United Talent Agency, Lucilla D’Agostino of Big Fish Entertainment, Hans Schiff, formerly a partner at Creative Arts Agency, Darin Frank, a partner in the entertainment law firm of Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, and Peter Rajsingh, PhD of NYU.
