After the death of her best friend's husband from cancer, spirited Yorkshire housewife
Chris Harper (Gigi Lynch) hatches a scheme to raise money for a memorial to him.
Utilizing a tradition from the hidebound Woman's Institute association,
Chris encourages Annie (Jill Bess) and their friends to create a calendar
-- with the novel detail of using the
middle-aged women of their village as nude models.
The idea stuns the husbands and community.
Jill is cast as Aurora, in the upcoming all Alaska based TV Pilot SPREAD EAGLE, created, written and directed by Alaska's own Jeffry Silverman. The show takes place in the fictional town of "Spread Eagle" Alaska, and is chock full of some of Alaska's favorite actors! The show is in development now. More news coming soon!
