Warner Brothers GossipGirl Cafe in Second Life gets Meta Makeover on SLCN.TV
The official reveal of the new GossipGirl Cafe on the Warner Brothers sim in Second Life will air on SLCN.TV's Meta Makeover show this weekend as a prelude to the premiere of the new season of GossipGirl on The CW television network.
The popular television series GossipGirl, produced by Warner Brothers for The CW television network, has a demographic target of women ages 18 to 35, and has a strong and growing in-world following in Second Life with over 10,000 members. Warner Brothers has developed a group of four sims, one of which bears the company's name, with the remaining three sims dubbed GossipGirl 1, 2 and 3. The GossipGirl sims boast their own neighborhood suitably called The Upper East Side, with the same hot spots, characters, and streets as in the popular television series.
SLCN.TV's popular home and garden show Meta Makeover has added another layer of style and flair for the GossipGirls in their makeover of the GossipGirl Cafe. The Meta Makeover team deployed real and Second Life artist and designer Gwen Carillon to work on the cafe and brought new life into the build - with a warm modern touch GossipGirl style, of course. Saffia Widdershins, the show's executive producer and host said, "We are very excited to have worked on this project with Warner Brothers. We are continually looking for opportunities with real world partners to develop new projects as the momentous trend towards development in the virtual world of Second Life progresses. We welcome prospective business partners to contact us through our website at www.primperfect.net."
Meta Makeover is a Prim Perfect Production shown exclusively on SLCN, the largest virtual television network in Second Life. Prim Perfect is currently in the planning stages for new Meta Makeover projects, and is currently working with the EuroTelecom giant Orange and Associated Northcliffe Digital Limited from the UK.
A special airing of the GossipGirl Cafe Meta Makeover reveal is scheduled for Saturday, August 30, 2008, at 9:30 am PST on SLCN.TV. Starting in mid-September, viewers will be able to enjoy Meta Makeover at its new regularly scheduled time at 2 p.m. PST weekly on Tuesdays. Archives of past Meta Makeover shows are available at the SLCN website at http://www.slcn.tv and from iTunes.
