HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Vanessa Verduga has many projects on her plate. She is filming the second season of the webseries "Justice Woman." A comedy that follows the story of Assistant District Attorney Sofía Escala (played by Verduga), who is determined to fight injustices within the legal system, the series is written by and stars Verduga. The series also stars Lee J. Kaplan, Luke Guldan, Mary S. Porter, Omar González, Nina Rochelle, Colin Blackard, Alison Ryan, Lino Del Core, Chiz Schultz, Jessica Fontaine, Tom Mahon, Stephen Sheffer and Josh Rodríguez with webisodes being helmed by Verduga, González, Del Core and Robert Gregson. It will premier in March 2012. For more information, click here or here. She is also co-producing the film H.O.M.E. (The Passenger) by Gaslight Films.
