This part is a fun departure from her recent roles on Easy to Assemble and Sparhusen and I can't wait for the audience to see it
New York, N.Y (PRWEB) March 9, 2010
Emmy -nominated actress, writer, and producer Illeana Douglas (To Die For, Six Feet Under), creator and star of two of the Web's most-successful original series: The IKEA-sponsored Web comedy Easy to Assemble and its musical "mockumentary" spin-off Sparhusen; will guest star in two episodes of The Temp Life, CJP Digital Media’s Streamy-nominated comedic Web series sponsored by SFN Group (formerly Spherion Corporation), about the trials and tribulations of hourly temp workers.
In episodes scheduled for April 5th and April 26th, Douglas will play "Eve Randall," a steely CEO who crosses paths with scheming former temp agency boss "Nick 'Trouble' Chiapetta" (played by Wilson Cleveland); uptight Head of Human Acquisitions, "Alina Deloris" (played by Rachel Risen); and IT temp trainee "Nancy Roder," the fan-favorite character created/played earlier this season by actress, writer, and producer Taryn Southern, best-known to Web TV audiences for her roles in Private High Musical, Sony Crackle's Woke Up Dead and TheWB.com's Sorority Forever.
Douglas recently wrapped the second season of Easy to Assemble including last month's special three-part Easy to Assemble: Flying Solo miniseries. Easy to Assemble and Sparhusen have received a combined 8.2 million organic views since October and seven nominations in the upcoming Streamy Awards.
"We're thrilled that Illeana agreed to be a part of the show," said Temp Life creator/star Wilson Cleveland, SVP and director of CJP Digital Media. "This part is a fun departure from her recent roles on Easy to Assemble and Sparhusen and I can't wait for the audience to see it."
SFN Group has sponsored The Temp Life since 2006 when longtime agency partner CJP presented the concept of creating an original online comedy series as an alternative vehicle aimed at reaching a more message-averse and Web-savvy audience. Since its November premiere, the first 12 episodes of The Temp Life's fourth season have garnered over 2 million views across Web, video on-demand and mobile platforms. In addition, a dedicated Temp Life iPhone application released earlier this month, now allows users to watch episodes and monitor real-time Twitter feeds of available employment opportunities across SFN Group’s family of specialized professional and general staffing businesses.
"We have had incredibly talented people involved with The Temp Life this year, and we are honored to have Illeana Douglas helping us end this season on the highest of notes," said SFN Group Senior Social Media Strategist and Temp Life Producer, Melissa Waldon.
The Temp Life can be seen online at TheTempLife.tv, YouTube, My Damn Channel, Facebook, Effinfunny.com and Daily Motion, as well as on iTunes, Roku, Boxee and Sony Bravia Internet Video Link via Blip.tv. The current season is also available on-demand in over 2 million U.S. hotel rooms via LodgeNet and as a dedicated iPhone application.
