Nice Girls Crew: Season 2
Directed by Tanuj Chopra
They’re baaaack! After a sizzling and successful debut in 2012, Sheetal Sheth, Lynn Chen and Michelle Krusiec return in this CAAM-produced, web-based comedy about three best frenemies and their cray cray antics in a book club. Sophie (Chen) is the human Rainbow Brite, wreaking sunshine even as she reveals her inner Dexter. Geraldine (Krusiec) is the badly permed, cult-leader potentate, whose talents range from interpretative dance to balancing martinis. And Leena (Sheth) is the unabashed thug-ess in heels, whose constant refusal to actually read any books is matched only by her trademark tardiness.
In Season 2, the book club moves to Sophie’s home, where the young entrepreneur capitalizes on a booming cupcake business and hires a personal assistant, Donatello (the dashing Leonardo Nam, The Perfect Score; The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift). Leena takes an immediate interest in this hunky new help, providing a very loose interpretation of the term manservant. Meanwhile, Geraldine goes deep into the world of motivational speaking, morphing into a self-ordained self-help guru and spreading words of wisdom and weirdness to all who will listen. We’re also introduced to Geraldine’s worldly, slightly raunchy mother, played by the iconic actress Tsai Chin (Joy Luck Club).
From emerging writer/producer Christine Kwon and award-winning Sundance director Tanuj Chopra (Punching at the Sun), Nice Girls Crew 2 also boasts the cinematography of Anne Misawa (Treeless Mountain; Jack & Diane), as well as guest spots from comic maverick Parvesh Cheena (Outsourced; Friend Me), and Youtube darling Anthony Ma.
Sheetal Sheth, Lynn Chen, and Michelle Krusiec will be in attendance, along with Tanuj Chopra and Christine Kwon.
