"YOU ME HER" (Season 2)  -  Television Series 

Cast:  Greg Poehler (Welcome To Sweden), Rachel Blanchard (Snakes On A Plane, Fargo, Peep Show), Priscilla Faia (Rookie Blue), Melanie Papalia (The Newsroom, Suits)
Network:  DirecTV's Audience Network
Production Company:  eOne Television 
Music Supervisor:  Mason Cooper
Status:  Post Production  

SYNOPSIS:  Centering around a suburban Portland, Oregon married couple, YOU ME HER pays homage to classic romantic comedy even while contorting it into “polyromantic comedy”: What began as an impulsive  “date” between the suburban husband Jack and neophyte escort Izzy in season one, spun into a whirlwind scenario that included Jack’s wife Emma. After running through the gauntlet of emotions and societal opinions, we find in season two the embrace of a unique relationship – and how sometimes what we thought we knew, or knew we thought, or felt, gets turned upside down when playtime ends and real life enters back in… 

MUSIC NEEDS: INDIE and EMERGING ARTISTS and Songs (unsigned okay) - open to Males, Females, Bands  
**Special Notes:  this season we are still targeting a “Portland style” artist/music approach (actual Portland artists not a requirement for pitches, but let us know if they are)… not drastically different from last season, but aiming more contemporary/hip/today and edgy/alt cool…

Synopsis: Season 3 saw Mia Rochlan (Ashley Greene) and Ethan Kelly (Cole Hauser) cross paths in Chicago, drawn into the dangerous worlds of the Russian mafia, the DEA and FBI, and government espionage. Was Mia the victim she claimed to be or the manipulative femme fatale who’d stop at nothing to get what she wanted? Ethan straddled the fence of his ex-army experience, working straight jobs or going rogue, stepping outside the confines of the law in order to bring his business associate attorney Marty Stein (Richard Schiff) to justice… Ethan had to make a decision on trusting either Mia or Marty as they have to cooperate in order to pull off a complicated heist.  Season 4 brings the show back to its previous San Francisco setting with its characters facing skeletons from the past and seeking revenge…
