Sabrina and Kelly Aldridge, the famed twin actresses from MTV's "8th & Ocean" and Actor Timothy Woodward Jr. (Palmetto Pointe) plan to attend the premier and red carpet fundraising benefit for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina

As talks between the WGA and the AMPTP (Association of Motion Picture & Television Producers) resume this week (Dec. 4, 2007), there is little hope for a quick resolution. However, there is a new hope and focus on dramas often overlooked by TV network programmers and critics - such as H20 Entertainment's "Whittaker Bay."

Due to the month-long WGA (Writers Guild of America) strike currently crippling TV and film production in Hollywood, the overdue attention is increasing around North Carolina drama set for its premier and fundraiser this Sunday, December 9. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the WGA is to deliver a counterproposal to the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers' (AMPTP) recent offer relating to residuals for new media streaming.

Hollywood Reporter spotlighted the TV series, filmed on location in Wilmington, N.C., - along with its star cast, Timothy Woodward Jr., Sabrina and Kelly Aldridge - in last month's cover story and special issue, Made in America. "Whittaker Bay," set to air beginning Jan. 5, 2008, on Superstation WGN. The show is also being marketed in 95 countries by Reveille International, which just signed the Hollywood East drama.

The cast features the twin Aldridge sisters from MTV's reality series, "8th & Ocean," and the feature film "Deck the Halls". The cast will be be on hand at the Dec. 9th premiere at historic Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington, which will double as a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina.

"Whittaker Bay" is 30-minute drama about four families - the Bannigans, Visteds, Coles and Hawkins - suburban elitists who seem to have the perfect life in their coastal North Carolina community.

Reveille International is one of the leading distributors of innovative and distinctive content from major producers across the globe and has just signed "Whittaker Bay."

"Our international team is always searching for great partnerships and cutting-edge and provocative programming, and we believe we've found that with Actor Timothy Woodward Jr. and Whittaker Bay cast," said John Pollak, vice president of International Distribution and Creative Affairs for Reveille International. "We're confident 'Whittaker Bay's star-studded cast and powerful drama should raise a few eyebrows of our clients overseas."
