LOS ANGELES — Maddy G Productions tapped California-based doll maker Sinthetics to create a life sized doll of Tasha James, the star of the company's newest series "It's a Tasha Thing."
The new comedy series premieres today for free at MaddyGTV.com as well as on social sites like YouTube and DailyMotion.
"When Maddy G approached us about this project, Marie was not talking about having us build them a prop, she was looking for a character," a Sinthetics representative said. "She had a laundry list of things she wanted: Ultra posable, super-realistic and expressive. It just so happens that our creations fit that bill already. Combining our innovative designs with the reputation of Maddy G Productions and the energy Marie Madison brings to every production, it was a no-brainer for us to get involved."
"It's A Tasha Thing" will include six episodes in the first series, all available for free on the studio's WebTV channel. The official web site for the show can be found at ItsATashaThing.com.
Maddy G is best known for the comedy series "Regarding Jenny" that featured an Abyss Creations RealDoll in the lead role played by Jenny Densuke.
The film has played international film festivals, on television in Sweden and has been shared on Youtube.
"Everyone loves Jenny," Maddy G's Marie Madison said. "But I wanted to take it a step further. It's more than just writing scripts for dolls. With social networks like YouTube and Facebook, the audience has got really involved in our world where life size dolls live alongside the rest of us. I want to push the envelope and see what else is possible in this realm we created."
