CULVER CITY, CA - MAY 02: WIGS co-creators Rodrigo Garcia (L) and Jon Avnet arrive for the party to celebrate the one year anniversary of The WIGS Digital Channel at Akasha on May 2, 2013 in Culver City, California.
The small screen allows for more intimate stories ... But within that arena, we still can produce ... sophisticated psychological portraits.
We’re looking forward to hearing what fans think of the new installments of these series but are hoping to introduce them to new viewers as well ... The inability for content to ‘become old’ is one of the qualities intrinsic to the platform that drew Julia Stiles to WIGS. As a writer, director and actress on the channel, she is a huge advocate for us and we’re truly blessed to have her amongst our talented cast and crew on both Blue and Paloma.More quotes »
