Selene Luna Posts Final Episode of Hollywood Confidential, Series on Misfits in Showbiz

Posted on Wed, Mar 9, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Not all things that come from Los Angeles are bad. Look at Al Davis and the Raiders. No. Wait. Forget that one. Here's another: comedian and actress Selene Luna. She pals around with Margaret Cho, and she's long felt an affinity for San Francisco's queer population. She used her comedic talent, for example, in public service announcements against Proposition 8. Let's see Al Davis do that. (She's also a burlesque dancer - whoa whoa whoa, don't go there, forget about Al Davis already.) Anyway, Luna who stands 3-foot-11, has been hard at work on a series about the frustrations faced by self-proclaimed misfits in showbiz. It's called Selene's Hollywood Confidential, and she posted the third and final episode online today.

The first episode went live Feb. 22, and the second one about a week later.

Luna writes on her blog that she got the idea for the series a long time ago but couldn't persuade TV execs to spend the money to produce it. So she went to Kickstarter to raise it herself. She exceeded her goal of $5,000.

Now that this project is behind her, we trust Luna will soon book her next San Francisco performance.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
