Tubefilter features The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy

Posted on August 28, 2014 in Misc Press, Press

Bree Brouwer, over at Tubefilter, has written a couple of articles about us.  That’s right, more than one!

Here are her articles:

1) Fund This: $55,000 Needed for More Adventures of Peter and Wendy

2) ‘The New Adventures of Peter + Wendy’ Casts Strawburry17, Jim Beaver

Here’s a little of what she says about the show:

“The team working on this production couldn’t be more top-notch. Walters and Rhodes have previous experience in transmedia productions, which contributes to their obvious attachment to and fantastic representation of their characters. The supporting cast, which consists of Brennan Murray, Graham Kurtz, and Lovlee Carroll, is entertaining and well-picked.”

Neverland Welcomes Gay Character Smee

Posted on August 26, 2014 in Announcements, Interviews, News, Press

We are proud to announce that the character of Smee in season two of The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy will be gay.  While this absolutely won’t define him as a character, it is important for us to touch on various aspects of life and growing up in our show.

There is a really great article at LGBTeen.com that has interviews with Kyle, Shawn and Jenni.  Here’s some copy-and-paste…. but you should really read the whole thing if you’re interested!

“Growing up is different for everybody,” said Kyle Walters, co-creator and star of the show. “We’re trying to touch as many versions of that, creating various characters so that hopefully everyone can relate an aspect of the show to their own journey.”

“Each character in our show represents a unique path and/or struggle with growing up. Smee will be no different!” said Walters. “He will be dealing with finding himself in the world as a gay man while also being an assistant to a big-time businessman, Hook.”

However, according to the show’s co-creator and writer Shawn deLoache, Smee’s sexuality won’t be the character’s main plot point. “Smee will be a strong, intelligent, layered character who just happens to be gay,” said deLoache. “Basically, we studied who Smee was in the books, who he really was at his heart … and dropped it into our world to see who he would become.”

In today’s issue of USA Today, our Peter Pan and co-creator, Kyle Walters, was quoted.  You can check out the online article here.  Or rush off to the newsstand to buy your own copy!

here’s a link to our indiegogo campaign: bit.ly/saveNPW

Here’s what Kyle said:

“This Web series transformed Peter Pan from the boy who wouldn’t grow up into a 20-something man child who wouldn’t grow up. So basically, every other millennial. Set in the small town of Neverland, Ohio, this quirky series follows the adventures of advice vlogger Wendy Darling, her two immature brothers, her bossy friend Lily and her best friend Peter Pan. The series just finished its first season with a bittersweet ending and is raising funds on Indiegogo for a second season.”

Thanks Hoai-Tran Bui for the wonderful article!

Geek Insider interviews Paula Jenni Shawn and Kyle

Posted on August 14, 2014 in Interviews, Press

Paula Rhodes, Jenni Powell, Shawn deLoache and Kyle Walters spill secrets!

Julia Tilford over at Geek Insider interviewed some of our cast and crew in this exclusive interview.  She says:

In a world of Netflix original series winning Emmys, episode lengths becoming longer and seasons becoming shorter to accommodate actors’ schedules, and the rise of the webseries, it’s safe to say that traditional TV is changing. You can go online now and find a series that is just as interesting, well-written, and well-made as many of the shows on primetime. And if you love geeky references and a cast who interacts with their fandom, well, that’s just gravy!
