Not content with being a celebrity spokesperson for both the Breaking The Chains
organization, as well as the American Diabetes Association Los Angeles Chapter where she was recently named to the celebrity cabinet, and having a huge following thanks to her role of Tamara Kaplan in Awkward
, Jillian Rose Reed has made the move into producing and announced her first project titled Elevator Stories.
She has just launched a Kickstarter
campaign to help fund the web series and as well as producing, she will also have a key role as Samantha, an artistic lesbian who is falling for central character Ezabel. Joining her in the cast are Hayley Marie Norman, Sujata Day, Oskar Rodriguez and Nicole Percent.
The synopsis of the series reads:
“Elevator Stories is a modern-day love story told through glimpses into the bizarre world of Ezabel (serial dater) and Samantha (comic book artist), by way of their apartment building elevator. Each episode is a page out of Samantha’s comic book about the happenings among the building's diverse (and often a little crazy) inhabitants, including Samantha’s best friend/roommate Bonnie and a good majority of Ezabel’s recent exes: Adam, Tatiana, and (her future ex) Frank.”
Explaining why she wanted to be part of the project, Reed said:
"I got involved with Elevator Stories originally because I liked the premise and the character. Now that I'm so deeply involved, I think it's an important subject matter. I'm excited to be a part of an LGBT project and really hope we get the chance to make it."
