Meet Shanna Roberts Salée, just 28 years old and already a director and producer of her own television series titled "Mistakes were Made" based in Montreal.
From French Canadian background, Shanna grew up in the West Island. She has extensive experience in media arts, and completed a degree in Communication studies at Concordia University. She's worked as an Assistant Director in Film and Television. In the last year, she has worked on Sony/Crackle’s The Art of More, starring Dennis Quaid and Kate Bosworth, and Bravo’s acclaimed cop drama 19-2 (which just won last night Best Drama at the Canadians Screen Awards). Her first novel The Lying Juilliards was published in August 2015 by Thought Catalog Books.
I had the privilege to interview Shanna last week and got the inside scoop on what's coming next in the Montreal based television series MWM.
Quixote Productions has officially announced a second season for the millennial-centric comedy MWM. The series follows the lives of three girlfriends as they weave their dubious path to adulthood, one mistake at a time. Shanna stars as the main character Clara, an independent and self aware young lady who is struggling with the balance between love and not caring about love.
The irreverent series focuses on the obscure complexities of modern day romance, success, and why millennials are not yet fully formed human beings.
The girls are back! Season 2 is coming in stronger than ever, with longer episodes, and appearances from recognized actors in the biz. Of course, to find out who you'll have to tune in for yourself. The shooting will begin in April and will launch in late September... Keep your eyes out for this eccentric new hit you won't want to miss it.
