America's cute-but-troubled sweetheart is in a new movie. No, it's not one of those things you see in theaters, in this case it's on the Oxygen Network. It certainly sounds like a wacky work of art:
LOS ANGELES, January 11, 2005 - What you can't do, teach! Enter Nadine - a 30-something, down-on-her-luck matchmaker who can't even seem to fix her own loveless love life. In Oxygen's newest romantic comedy, Nadine in Date Land, actress-comedienne Janeane Garofalo stars as Nadine, owner of a dating service that needs a professional revamping soon to prevent her business endeavor from closing its dating doors. The two-hour Oxygen original movie premieres Saturday, June 25 at 8pm/7C.
To get the inside scoop, we turned to Debby Beece, who's Oxygen President of Programming. According to her, "Janeane's brilliant talent and comedic timing makes Nadine irresistibly loveable... Our audience will find themselves cheering for the underdog every step of the way." Yes, I'm sure they will.
Two medium market newspapers are the only ones I've found so far that have given any recent attention to this oeuvre. And, strangely enough, they're both in the South. See "With 'saccharine' factor out, Garofalo happy in role" or the oddly similar "Janeane Garofalo jumps in front of the camera for TV movie, but radio is her main focus".
