The comedy jury consisted of Kim Cattrall, Janet Pierson and Aaron Yoo. After the awards brunch this morning, Truth Slash Fiction took way three awards! Best Pilot in Comedy, Best Actress in Comedy for Jordyn DiNatale and Virgin Produced Choice Awards. Read IndieWire's article on all the winners here.
Check out Liz Shannon Miller's review of Truth Slash Fiction. "Not a diamond in the rough but a real gem, “Truth Slash Fiction” is more than just a show that captures a fascinating element of the zeitgeist. Ostensibly about the adolescent women who turn their obsession with boy bands into erotic fan fiction, this incredibly well-produced pilot also managed to capture an authentic teenage voice on a level beyond your typical CW drama. As just a teenage drama, “Truth Slash Fiction” would be enjoyable. As just an examination of fanfic culture, it would be accurate and valuable. But the combination proves irresistible."
