"Gal" Friday! Jessica Palette

Jessica Palette was a contestant in the 2008 VH1 reality show, Scream Queens; which featured ten contestants competing in challenges including working with bugs, gore and stunts as they participated in a horror-acting boot camp. Prior to that short-run series (eight one-hour episodes), Jessica supported herself by working as a waitress while she pursued an acting career.

I was contacted last week by writer and director Travis Legge, who is currently in preproduction on a web television series called "The New Adventures of Miss Masque", starring Jessica Palette (pictured; left & above) as the granddaughter of the golden age heroine, Miss Masque.

Here is a brief summary of the series: "Diana Bowman, granddaughter of the original Miss Masque, discovers the truth of her family heritage upon inheriting her grandmother’s worldly possessions. Seeing how awful the world is, and inspired by her grandmother’s youthful crusades, Diana adopts the identity of Miss Masque and begins patrolling the city as a vigilante hero. With the assistance of a retired superhero form the 1940’s the new Miss Masque begins a series of adventures fighting crime and standing for justice."

The New Adventures of Miss Masque will be the pilot for an ongoing web series featuring various public domain superheroes from the 1940’s. Episodes will be available online for free in standard definition, with HD versions (including exclusive behind-the-scenes content) available for a paid download. If the first four webisode story arc performs well, "The New Adventures of Miss Masque" will become an ongoing web series.

Travis is seeking crowd funding in support of his efforts to make this web series. If you would like to help him out with any size donation, please follow this link for additional information. I know that any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Catacombs is pleased to help spread the word and to have Jessica serve as this week's duly elected "Gal" Friday. I can't wait to see her in costume!
