Show Notes: DoG, Episode 2

Jake asked me to write a paragraph of show notes for Episode 2 of Delusions of Grandeur – just a little insight to the shooting process. It was fun to give that window. Those notes are here.

DoG – a launch date, all the same

Lots of news: Delusions of Grandeur, the slated ABC Family show, launched this week – yesterday in fact, October 4th, as we all expected… but not the way we expected.

And now, to have a person write an open letter …

Press Release: Decorated performer Tara DeFrancisco (SC, iO, ComedySportz, ABC Family), pulls one lucky audience member out of the audience to become her COstar in this production.

Tara & CO will …

Benefit for Vinny D!

Come. Donate. Send love. Vince DeFrancisco is the brother of Tara DeFrancisco – and he is one great dude.

Additionally, Vinny owns his own business, and their insurance …
