Worcester Movie Makes National TV Debut
“Sexting in Suburbia” to Premiere on Lifetime Network January 14th

The new independent film “Sexting in Suburbia” was filmed entirely in the city of Worcester in the spring of 2011. Locations included Worcester State College, Worcester Academy, Burncoat High School, Ralph’s Diner, The Beechwood Hotel, The Printers Building, and several private homes. Previously entitled “Broken Silence,” the movie will premiere on the Lifetime Network on Saturday, January 14th at 8pm, with additional airings scheduled for January 15th, and throughout the year. The film stars Liz Vassey (CSI Las Vegas) as a mom whose life is shattered when her teenage daughter, played by Jenn Proske (Vampires Suck), commits suicide after being bullied in school and on the internet. Mirroring stories recently seen in the news, director John Stimpson of Princeton, MA (The Legend of Lucy Keyes, A Christmas Kiss), hopes to raise awareness about the bullying problem facing society. “Bullying is a hot topic right now in all of our schools, this film shines a light on the cruel ways kids treat each other, particularly online,” said Stimpson.

Produced by the MA-based production company Moody Independent, which just wrapped production on the independent film “Lockdown,” also filmed in Worcester, “Sexting in Suburbia” drew cast from both Hollywood and Massachusetts. Judith Hoag (Big Love, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Kelli Goss (Big Time Rush) and Emmy award winner Ryan Kelley (Prayers for Bobby), flew in from Los Angeles to co-star with local actors Rachael Parsons, Roy Souza and Adjovi Keone. In addition, central Massachusetts actors Sarah Cote of Sutton and Kayla Harrity of Auburn, make their TV debut on the 14th. Cote and Harrity were featured as extras in co-producer Andrea Ajemian’s film “BoyBand,” shot locally a few years ago. During auditions for “Sexting in Suburbia” Ajemian remembered the women’s hard work and talent, and they impressed Stimpson. “Hard work and persistence do pay off. We’re making dreams come true, and that’s why I love making movies,” said Ajemian. Local crewmembers are also looking forward to the national TV debut of their film. Worcester resident Gina Rossi, the Script Supervisor for both “Sexting in Suburbia” and “Lockdown” says, “As an aspiring screenwriter, it’s been a dream come true to work on these films in Worcester. I’ve even been able to have my daughter help out as a production assistant on the set,” said Rossi about her experience. “I can’t wait to see the movie on TV.”

The film also showcases the music of Bolton native Pete McNamara and his band, The Pete and Mike Band. His song, “Afloat” underscores the opening credits. Worcester’s own Sam James’ tune “So Clear,” featuring Gamble and Burke also plays prominently in the picture.
“Worcester is a location-rich area in which to produce films and we’ve found the community to be extremely supportive. In addition we are helping to grow the talent and crew base in the city,” said producer and Medford native, Mark Donadio. Donadio’s producing partner Miriam Marcus added, “We are very grateful that the production tax credit is going strong here in Massachusetts, it helps us finance our pictures allowing us to spend dollars and create jobs in cities like Worcester.”
The film will premiere just two weeks before the Governor Patrick’s “No Name Calling Day” which is January 25th. Students are encouraged to wear black as a sign of their commitment to “Black Out Bullying”.
