2017 Daytime Emmy Awards Contender Showcases “Conversations in LA” That Are Deep, Real, and Unforgettable

In this dark comedy from East Coast native Anne Marie Cummings (creator, writer, director, star) and Immediate Vision Productions these unique conversations tell 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.

Season 2 of CONVERSATIONS IN LA will continue to be filmed as single-shot episodes and will feature guest star appearances by Sterling Jones, Jack Plotnick, Rebecca Metz, and Leland Martin, among others.

“There are a lot of directors out there who like single-shots, but not everybody masters this style; it’s very tough. But fortunately, for us, we all work really well together,” Cummings stated. “It’s great to work with a cast and crew that gets, and likes, my artistic vision. It has been refreshing to discover that audiences are hungry for the characters and the in depth, and very real, conversations that make up CONVERSATIONS IN LA.”
