Executive Producers Kelsey Grammer and Tom Russo Present Messina Captor Films' "The Salon" Digital Series for 2020 Emmy® Award Consideration
By: Frank Tobin Public Relations
"The Salon" pivots from the comedic to the dramatic with an ensemble cast that mirrors the culturally diverse richness of the world outside the "The Salon's" rarified atmosphere. The storyline punctuates the zany and unlikely friendships that are formed among employees and customers amplified by contemporary issues ripped from today's headlines.

"The Salon" features Harry Shearer, Kate Linder, Luis Jose Lopez, Mason Grammer, Eddie Buck, Akende Munalula, Candy Washington, Vanessa Garcia, Chalo Savino, Jeanette O'Connor, Jennifer Lee Weaver, Gail Bearden, Derek Washington, Anthony Tai and Tommy Geraci, with a cameo by KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.
Messina Captor reflects on her project: "'The Salon' is a microcosm of our world and I am delighted that it has resonated with so many of our viewers 18+, many of whom have remarked how welcome it was to have a comedy come into their lives during these challenging times. It was always my hope that people would see a little of themselves in one of more of these characters. I like to describe as series as the juxtaposition of truth and reality, fantasy and fact, and perfection and imperfection. We were so fortunate to be able to complete this project during the pandemic with a masterful post-production. This included expressive music by Judith Owen."
"The Salon" is based upon Captor's award-winning short film, "A Couple of White Chicks at The Hairdresser"
Key crew credits include: Lori Glasgow(Co-Producer);
