Dramedy TV pilot “Its what she would have wanted” starts its festival run this month at the Nashville Film Festival, which started October 1 through Oct. 7.

Further festival showings include Mill Valley Film Festival, which runs Oct. 9 through Oct. 18, and LA Shorts Fest, which runs Oct. 2 through Oct. 31.

The film centers around Maggie (Marie Selma), who welcomes four of her oldest friends back home after the unexpected death of one of their own. She convinces them to fulfill a childhood pact - destroy all evidence of their friends most embarrassing secrets. Their plan proves less than fool proof when long-buried resentments begin to rise, and the group realizes Maggie is dealing with more than the loss of a friend.

The pilot was written by Semla. Desiree Staples, whose most recent short The Influencers” garnered several wins on the festival circuit, appears as Steph and also served as Executive Producer.
“We are so excited for our female-driven comedy pilot to be premiering in 2020 on the virtual festival circuit. At its core, this piece is about the complexity of female relationships and friendships as we grow into adulthood, and how we navigate with others through grief,” Staples said. “The humor in the piece is so visceral as well, with a darkly comedic look at the information and secrets that we try to hide in order to protect others. It was an honor to work on this piece with Nate Trinrud and Marie Semla, and we are thrilled to be showcasing the pilot this Fall at these three festivals, with the next steps of finding a platform for the entire first season of the series.”
Kimia Behpoornia, Suzanne Turner, Lindsay Chambers, and Chris Lee round out the ensemble cast.

“Its What She Would Have Wanted” was directed by Nate Trinrud and produced by DesiMo Productions, Andrew Tolbert, Addison Heimann, and Britta Rowings.
