About The Project
The idea for Soiled Doves came about when Becca had a dream about the three of us, dressed as saloon girls, kicking demon ass in the wild west! The first script was 15 pages and read like a high school musical. Ha! With lots of hard work every Tuesday and Saturday night (see ya later, dudes!), we've strengthened our writing muscles, and now the 3 main characters, Rosemary, Annette, and Dee (RAD), live in a realistic world full of beauty, danger, grit, and unease. This labor of love has taken us to creepy cabins in old ghost towns, where fly strips hung over our bunk beds while we slept (pretty sure we swallowed a few). It has taught us about the pioneering women of the west and the sacrifices they made to survive frontier life. It has brought us the most inspiring, talented, and caring artists; a tribe that brought the world of Soiled Doves to life in a Teaser for the pilot at Paramount Ranch (also home of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman- yessss) and a 13 Episode Web Series in Joshua Tree, Big Bear, and a one bedroom apartment we transformed into eight different locations. These shoots further helped us explore the characters more fully and refine the story of Soiled Doves to what it is today. After 6 years of working, learning, and gathering our tribe, we are ready! It’s time! TO. SHOOT. THE. PILOT! At the reins, we have the badass director, Lauren Tracy, co-founder of Blue Fever. We have a diverse group of incredible actors. We have the passion, the drive, the experience, and megaLOVE for this story! Although we’ve had opportunities to sell our show, we believe there is no one better to share Soiled Doves with the world than the three ladies that birthed, raised and continue to give our everything to it!
Inclusion StatementUnlike most Westerns, our story is written by 3 women about 3 women. But we don't stop there. Women will also be in the limelight behind the camera. Our pilot will be Directed and Produced by women, and we are committed to filling crew positions with many uber-talented ladies!
