LA Web Fest founder Michael Ajakwe called Vlog Star "hilarious... proof of what can be done when you have talent on top of talent on top of talent."
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
The fourth and final season of the award-winning comedic web series "Vlog Star" will begin airing July 13 on vlogstarshow.com. Written and produced by Kenny Byerly and David J. Duman through their production company Sit Thru This, and created by Kenny Byerly and Mike Ludwig, "Vlog Star" follows the misadventures of Nate Klugman (Byerly), a faded Internet video star with delusions of grandeur, and his long-suffering, torch-carrying best friend, Alexa (Chase McKenna).
"Vlog Star" was an official selection of the Los Angeles Web Series Festival for two years running (2010-2011), where it won awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Festival founder Michael Ajakwe called the show “hilarious… proof of what can be done when you have talent on top of talent on top of talent.”
New episodes will appear on the show's official website and the show's YouTube channel every Wednesday from July 13 through August 31, bringing closure to the long-running story. Trailers for the new season are currently available to view.
By the end of its run, "Vlog Star" will have produced a total of 54 episodes since its debut on September 2, 2008 – a rare accomplishment in the world of narrative web series. Throughout its run, it has been produced on a shoestring budget with a skeleton crew of as little as one and seldom more than two.
In last season’s cliffhanger, Alexa left Nate for a new manager/love interest (Ken Peterson), while Nate became the conquest of a sexy YouTube groupie (Patty Guggenheim) who may be too much for him to handle. This season, Nate finally realizes his feelings for Alexa, but it may already be too late. In the meantime, Nate continues to butt heads with his stepbrother Max (Mike Ludwig), whose success he resents, and Alexa’s roommate Shelly (Marion Kerr), who tries in vain to help Alexa escape Nate’s influence.
Sit Thru This Productions (formerly Single Play Productions) was founded by David J. Duman and Kenny Byerly to produce smart and innovative comedic web content on a modest budget. Duman and Byerly attended high school together in Pleasanton, CA, and first collaborated while working on UC Berkeley’s popular campus humor magazine, the Heuristic Squelch. Their projects for Sit Thru This include the web series "Vlog Star" and "Kenny Bloggerly’s Internet Life," as well as shorts, spoofs and one-offs including “Hollywood Dreams,” which premiered at the fall 2010 Bagavagabonds Art Explosion, “Iron Man 2 Deleted Scene,” “Jason Bourne Cooks a Quiche,” and “Disaster Movie: Meet the Writers,” as well as the parody music videos “Scrabulous” and “Credit Card.”
