In May, YouTube announced they would be hosting
a lineup of original video channels, in a possible attempt to compete with network and cable television. Among the new offerings was WIGS
, the (NSFW
) brainchild of director/producer/writers Jon Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia, of original, scripted dramatic series and short films exploring female characters.
The first, 15 episode series, Jan
, starred Caitlin Gerard, Virginia Madsen and Stephen Moyer. They also have Behind the Scenes videos.
A short film, Serena
, starred Jennifer Garner and Alfred Molina.
A third series, Blue
, is currently "airing," and will have a total of 12 episodes chronicling "the struggles of a mother [Julia Stiles] who secretly works as a call girl." That series also stars David Harbour, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Kathleen Quinlan and Sarah Paulson. Behind the Scenes videos
have also been posted. Stiles was interviewed on NBC's Today Show
and by Adweek
about the project.
New 5-8 minute long episodes are posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Nudity, language and adult topics may make them nsfw for some viewers.
"Director's Cut" videos (like this one)
are also available for some episodes (linked on episode pages) if you're logged into YouTube and over 18. Spanish-language episodes
