MOGUL: DONNA ON THE GO GOES FOR AN EMMY
"Donna On The Go" Goes For An Emmy
by Kristin West Actress & Producer
Have you ever said to your roommate, "Hey let's create a show together and go for an Emmy?" Then perhaps you have something in common with Peggy Lane and Donna Russo of "Donna On The Go", a web series aptly tag lined "Two women, an iPhone and a Walker".
Donna and Peggy's journey to Emmy recognition has not been a typical one. "Donna On The Go" is a web series designed to raise awareness for people with challenges. While many venues have made progress having ramps, and scooters etc, there are still many obstacles to overcome. "Donna On The Go" is a lighthearted look at some of them.
Peggy and Donna are roommates in real life, and together, they've chronicled the daily challenges Donna faces pursuing her acting and dancing career in Los Angeles while having Turner Syndrome and FSH Muscular Dystrophy. Of the show, renown TV critic Terri Jones said, "Lane captures a tone that is delicate, honest but not brutal, sweet but not saccharine, and most of all hopeful." Both Peggy and Donna recently discussed their joys and challenges making this show on What Women Want Talk Radio with Judy Goss and me.
