BORDER’D partners with OTV

In August 2018, the cameras rolled on the pilot episode of a new Latinx web series from Diginamic Productions (Adrian & Andrew Nuño) and Lauryn Lugo entitled BORDER’D, in which Michelle worked with a small-but-mighty cast of talented co-stars. Diginamic is thrilled to have partnered with Open Television (OTV) in a streaming and development agreement for the remainder of the first season of the series.

The pilot had its first public screening on April 17th at the Chicago Cultural Center. The event was very well-attended, and an enthusiastic audience delivered great feedback about the work.

BORDER’D centers around a trio of Hispanic siblings brought back to their hometown where they are forced to confront their ignored culture, past failures, and hidden secrets. Michelle is delighted for the opportunity to delve further into the rich role of the stern but loving matriarch, Magdalena, who is portrayed both in flashback sequences as a young wife and mother, and decades later as a grieving widow.
