Productions Branded Sources Promotional & Brand Integration Partners
MWG Entertainment, a multi-platform digital production company, launched a new web series “Road To The Altar”, starring Jaleel White (Family Matters) and Leyna Juliet Weber (As The World Turns). “Road To The Altar” premiered on various platforms across the Internet and mobile including YouTube.com, Joost, Sling, Koldcast, and Zillion TV.
“Road To The Altar” is the story of one man’s journey through Weddingland. In a series of interviews and on-location videos, all shot in a mockumentary aesthetic, the audience is invited to watch the planning, negotiating, and taffeta napkin setting, very serious business. Our hero, Simon, is the young groom trying to negotiate this ride with all the reason he can muster. Stylistically similar to The Office, “Road To The Altar” taps into the humor and insanity inherent in that oldest and most sacred of human traditions, the wedding.
