VAN NUYS, Calif. — Digital Playground has announced the launch of a fan site and trailer for "Cherry," the first release from new lesbian studio Jewelbox Films that will be available on April 26.
Fans can get their first glimpse at the trailer by visiting JewelboxFilms.com. The special fan site also contains exclusive cast photos, free downloads, wallpaper and is optimized for iPhone and iPad users.
Mainstream actress Judy Thompson plays Cherry, the owner of a lesbian strip club.
“Experiencing raw, feminine passion intersecting with art made coming to work a blissful dream," she said.
Kay Brandt, who wrote and directed "Cherry," remarked, "This is the first big step for Jewelbox and Digital Playground. We've taken a huge leap as a creative team, breaking ground in a new area of the market. The landscape was ripe for this type of filmmaking, taking the girl/girl niche market to a new level. We're ready to move forward and blaze a new cinematic trail."
Cherry’s girlfriend is played by Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele. “This is my first ever all-girl movie — and I loved everything about making it, especially the amazing lesbian sex scenes! My fans will get to see a different side of me and I think it’s going to rock their worlds!”
Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis said “Cherry” is taking DP in an exciting, new direction.
“I am so proud of what Kay Brandt has done with Jewelbox," Lewis said. "The quality you’ll see in ‘Cherry’ is unlike anything being done right now in girl-girl. From the lighting to the dialogue to the erotic, provocative sex — this is incredible filmmaking.”
"Cherry” also stars Nina Mercedes, Sinn Sage, Celeste Star, Lux Kassidy, Ann Marie Rios, Vicki Chase, Ash Hollywood, Raylene, Zoey Holloway and Diamond Foxxx.
Director Kay Brandt and “Cherry” star Judy Thompson will be at the international lesbian festival The Dinah 2011 April 1-3 in Palms Springs, Calif. They will be screening the “Cherry” trailer and connecting with fans.
