INGENUE – star
LA Weekly columnist Lina Lecaro described Ingenue as a “superstar drag diva.” Ingenue (pronounced “on zha new”) started her drag career over 12 years ago in the heart of West Hollywood, California. Since then she has literally worked in every bar and nightclub in WeHo, building a name and a brand for herself. Her most notable gigs include hosting TigerHeat, the West Coast’s largest gay club, and emceeing SoCal’s number one drag show, the Dreamgirls Revue. Ingenue had the honor of receiving two back-to-back WeHo Awards for “Outstanding Drag Diva” and also serves as the drag columnist for WeHo Times. Check her articles out at www.WeHoTimes.com.
In addition, she has appeared in several television shows, including “Little Women,” “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best,” “The Burn with Jeff Ross,” and “Chasing The Saturdays.” Recently, she starred in a skit for “Funny Or Die,” spoofing Ivanka Trump’s current book. Her goal is to become the next Madea, taking her acting talents and character to the big screen. “Superstar” indeed!
GEORGE BARR – creator, executive producer, writer, director
The left-handed force behind “Roads To Keystone” comes from a soap-loving background. In college, he created and produced “Beyond the Ivy,” the very first soap opera ever to air on the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor’s campus. Once he moved to Los Angeles, he worked at CBS, paying bills for “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.” He then jumped over to a CBS series called “Buddy Faro,” produced by his idol Mr. Aaron Spelling. It was short-lived so Barr moved on to another show and then various other positions, learning all aspects of the entertainment business.
With RTK, Barr loves showcasing his skills as a showrunner. “No detail goes unnoticed,” he discloses. “The beauty of this dramedy is in the details. Look closely. You’ll get an extra laugh.” His goal is to get RTK to the masses and to TV Land, a perfect network for it, he thinks. In addition to writing and producing RTK, he has five more guilty pleasure television shows in various stages of development. He co-writes these with … guess who? Father Finnegan! That’s right! George Barr and Christopher Smith are writing partners, hoping to also sell one of their incredible pilots to the major networks.
BRAD ULBRICH – star
Brad Ulbrich has been acting and performing on stage and screen for years. Alec Sedgewick and Vernon Kestel are not his first forays into “hunk-hood.” His career as a “sex symbol” began with the leading role of Joseph in his kindergarten production of the Nativity Scene in his home state of Delaware. But, he quickly outgrew the constraints of the Diamond State and brought his passion for acting and writing to Los Angeles. He has appeared in various TV shows, short films, and movies and has been featured as a writer for shows like “Fashion Police” and “Steam Room Stories.” While he also spent years perfecting his singing and acting skills on stage at Disney theme parks both in the U.S. and Tokyo, it is his flair for comedy that is his most ardent pursuit. At present, he is writing and starring in his own riotous web series entitled “Status Updates,” currently in production. When he is not making people laugh with his scripts and nonsense on social media, you can find him teaching the occasional dance class in Hollywood. Oh, yes. He is a dancer too. From an Aussie stud on a web soap to Disney’s Aladdin to Jesus’ earthly father, Brad’s versatility knows no bounds.
CHRISTOPHER SMITH – star
Christopher Smith (Father Finnegan) is thrilled to be a part of “Roads of Keystone,” having been a fan of its earlier incarnation. In addition to playing the “moral authority” of Keystone, Smith is a writer, soap opera historian, and host of his own YouTube web series, “You’re Not Taping Again, Are You?” and “The YNTAAY Minis.” On the stage, he is the creator/book writer of The Good People of Sodom and Gomorrah: The Musical!, as well as Turmoil! A New Musical. His short, romantic, musical-comedy Feet First, about foot fetishists in New York City, was featured in the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Under the nom de plume C.A. Smythe, he also published the dark comedy/mystery novel The Unfortunates, available on Amazon.com. Smith also writes guilty pleasure-type TV pilots with his writing partner, who just so happened to create “Roads to Keystone.”
