Fictional Fares will bring literary drama to ride sharing on the Legion of Leia podcast!
On this week’s Legion of Leia podcast, myself and my co-host Anastasia Washington welcome Jenni Powell, Paula Rhodes, Omar Najam and James Brent! This insanely talented group of people are working on a new web series called Fictional Fares. They’re currently crowdfunding on Seed and Spark, and you can check out the campaign here!
Fantastic Fares is a web series where fictional characters from your favorite literary works appear in the back of a ride share car service. Also, each episode will tie into a charity campaign! (They tell you all about it in the podcast!)
Even better? Here is their inclusion statement! “Fantastic Fares may exist in a world of fantasy, but our cast & crew represent some of the best of our diverse real world. Over half of our team is female (like the actual population) & nearly half are people of color, so our audience shall see themselves represented in our human library.” The cast includes actors like Tara Platt, Brea Grant, Leo Camacho, and, of course, James, Omar and Paula!
Here is more info on the show: “Join our Driver and Nrr80r (Get it? Like the narrator in a book? Of course you do, our audience is smart like Holmes!) as they escort the likes of MacBeth, The Three Musketeers, The Little Mermaid, and more around town.
“But who our Driver happens to be is a mystery to be solved! Come along for the ride and test your mental library to identify characters before the reveal, and on the longer journey, to piece together clues and figure out which beloved character has been at the wheel.
“With a carpool full of beloved faces from screens large and small, and a library Belle would be envious of, this is going to be a trip you don’t want to miss!”
