EARNESTINE PHILLIPS, actress recently seen in “Speechless” and “The Mindy Project,” is our special guest this Sunday night!
Originally from Dallas, Texas, EARNESTINEhas appeared in a number of the most popular TV shows in recent years, including “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Southland,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Glee, Bones,” “ER” and “The Shield.” Most recently she has appeared in “Speechless” and “The Mindy Project.”
EARNESTINE is a longtime member of Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum repertory company and is a three-time NAACP Theatre Award winner for her performances in “The Tempest,” “As You Like It” and “To Kill A Mockingbird.” She is currently starring in “Trouble in Mind,” the scathingly funny backstage drama about interracial politics by pioneering African American playwright Alice Childress. The groundbreaking 1955 satire follows an integrated theater company in rehearsal for a “progressive” anti-lynching drama. The play-within-a-play, entitled Chaos in Belleville, marks the first opportunity for gifted African American actress Wiletta Mayer (portrayed by ERNESTINE) to play a leading lady on Broadway. But what compromises must she make to succeed?

Also Dropping By…
Also dropping by the show this Sunday night is 23-year old client, director and producer AARON ROBERTS. He first conceived of his online series “The Cast Members” in spring of 2014.
Meet Alex Grayson, a college coed who lives with his Grandmother, meets the financial woes of paying for his tuition and thus must join the workforce. His lack of work experience lands him a job at Royal Cinemas where bizarre and eccentric are the norm. With the perpetual struggle between upper management and the patsy “Cast Members” (the strangely endearing, yet zany and neurotic coworkers), the countless encounters with a spectrum of the oddest customers, and a disgruntled former employee persistently causing trouble at the Cinema, Alex quickly realizes that his new found employment is anything but ordinary!
Filming throughout Fall/Winter 2016, the pilot was completed in early 2017 and released in June of this year to much acclaim from fans on social media and beyond, as the episode has now been viewed over 50,000 times in slightly over a month. AARON is currently overseeing a crowdfunding campaign to bring the rest of “The Cast Members” Series 1 to life.
