Days of Our Lives alum, Sally Kirkland who played the role of Tracey Simpson for 22 episodes in 1999 debuted in the two-episode season 2 finale for 2017 Daytime Emmy Award-nominated digital series, CONVERSATIONS IN LA which began streaming Wed, 12/13/17 via iTunes and Amazon. The Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning icon joins the cast as "Evelyn James," a recovering methamphetamine addict who be-friends "Alex" (Brett Benner) at Narcotics Anonymous.
CONVERSATIONS IN LA, is a dark comedy from East Coast native Anne Marie Cummings (creator, writer, director, star) and Immediate Vision Productions that tells a modern-day story about a young Hispanic man (Gustavo Velasquez), who’s already had a fair amount of sexual experience and is genuinely searching for a meaningful relationship whose world collides with Michelle Macabee (Cummings) who is dealing with career transition, pet loss, and menopause. While Michelle’s age is something Gus grapples with, for a time, it’s Michelle who’s torn between her desire to just have sex with the young Gus versus be in a loving, committed relationship with him.
Michelle turns to her pet loss therapist for help and her two close friends, Alex and Nicole (in the midst of denying their own mid-life crisis’), witness Michelle’s transformation and become obsessed with redirecting her life down a path they deem acceptable and “normal.” On the surface, CONVERSATIONS IN LA is about finding what makes us feel alive, whatever stage of life we’re in, but beneath that, it’s a story about self-discovery and finding who we are without the influences of those around us.
Cummings and Velasquez received 2017 Daytime Emmy nominations in the lead acting categories for Daytime Digital Drama Series, as well as Vanita Harbour for her supporting role.
CONVERSATIONS IN LA is currently in pre-production for Season 3 which begins filming early next year.
