New project: Paris Connections
I wanted to let you all know about my exciting new project! Paris Connections will be a direct-to-DVD premiere movie featuring one of my fave heroines, Madison Castelli. I can’t wait for you all to see it!
And… here is the official press release.
Celebrated bestselling novelist Jackie Collins to create and produce original content for home viewing.
Amber Entertainment to co-produce.
Mega selling author Jackie Collins, whose 27 New York Times bestsellers have collectively sold over 400 million copies worldwide, and whose latest novel “Poor Little Bitch Girl,” published by St. Martin’s Press on February 9th, is partnering with Amber Entertainment to co-produce a series of premier DVD’s. The DVD’s will feature one of her most popular characters, Madison Castelli (“Lethal Seduction,” “Deadly Embrace”). The first movie, Paris Connections, is a romantic thriller, that will be shot in Paris. Principle photography starts February 1st.
Paris Connections will be produced by Ileen Maisel, Mark Ordesky, Lawrence Elman and Jackie Collins, and will be directed by Harley Cokeliss.
Collins notes, “I love the concept of creating quality entertainment and bringing it directly to my fans without addressing any network concerns or limitations. Madison is one of my most popular characters and I get fan requests from readers who want to hear more about her. This will give me an opportunity to bring more of her stories right to my fans. It’s an innovative idea to give the consumer something really exclusive.”
In addition, there are three more planned movies in the “Connections” series.
In the past Jackie has written and produced ten hours of prime time for NBC productions – “Lucky Chances” starring Nicollette Sheridan, Vincent Irizarry and Sandra Bullock – and “Lady Boss” starring Kim Delany. She also produced for CBS “Hollywood Wives – The New Generation” starring Farrah Fawcett, Robin Givens and Melissa Gilbert.
