Mother And Son Team Create Family Friendly Romantic Comedy Webseries
“When Fact Met Fiction” premieres December 2nd, 2016 on YouTube
East Stream Studio, founded this year by Stefan Liner (CEO) and his mother Robin Liner (VP) have teamed up to cre- ate the company’s rst Webseries, “When Fact Met Fiction”—a family friend- ly romantic comedy that takes place in Southern Appalachia. The show’s two leads are played by Je Alexander (Jon Frank) and Rebekah Babelay (Olivia Smith). Supporting roles are played by award winning actor Carol Shores (Ce- leste Frank), Mondy Carter (Mel Tenant) and Madison Garris (Sunny Frank). The show will premiere on YouTube and Vimeo on Friday, December 2nd.
The story takes place in the office of Southern Sunset magazine, a lifestyle magazine owned by single mother and widow Celeste Frank. When Southern Sunset loses its lead writer with only a couple days left before an issue goes to print, Celeste is forced to call in a family favor to her brother in law Jon Frank, aka best selling romance novelist “Nathaniel Embers”.
There’s only a handful of people that know Jon is Nathaniel Embers. Jon keeps it that way for personal and professional reasons. When Jon arrives at Southern Sunset to help he’s immediately taken with the newest member of the Southern Sunset family, Olivia Smith, a young woman fresh out of college focused on her career as a technical editor.
Things don’t start o too well between the two when Olivia nds some dirt on Jon in a web search. What she doesn’t realize is the Jon that sits across from her now has changed and happens to be her favorite author, Nathaniel Embers. But Jon isn’t afraid of a challenge. He’s made up his mind to win Olivia’s heart and to do so without telling her about Nathaniel Embers.
