Amber Benson, who was Tara on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and more recently a short-lived stripper named Mary Curtis on RINGER, is set to star in a new webseries. MARIE’S ZERO GRAVITY BAR AND GRILL will begin shooting very soon. Here’s the premise: Marooned 50 light years from Earth with little else but a computer, Marie (Benson) opens an “intergalactic bar and grill” to support herself.
According to AMBER BENSON ONLINE, the series is “‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ as seen through the eyes of Douglas Adams with a little Firefly & Red Dwarf thrown in for good measure.”
Jonathan M. Woodward, who was Holden Webster in the Buffy episode "Conversations With Dead People",
and Knox in 7 episodes of ANGEL, will co-star.
Amber Benson’s film debut was as Cheyenne in THE CRUSH (1993), which also marked the film debut of Alicia Silverstone. THE CRUSH can be streamed on NETFLIX.
