Victoria Gordon - Show Biz Legacy Blooms On The Internet

"Pilot Season," a comedy anthology miniseries premieres February 23
LOS ANGELES - Feb. 11, 2021 - PRLog -- What becomes a legacy most?

If you are actress-singer-creator VICTORIA GORDON, it means taking all of the things you learned growing up in a show business family and making it your own.  To that end, Gordon, a third generation entertainer, turns her well-earned respect for the past into new creations for new audiences.  In addition to preparing for some of her "sold-out" socially distanced cabaret concerts later this Spring, she's also about to launch a new self-produced anthology web series that demonstrates how even in the pandemic era, the show must go on.

"The web series is based on a collection of stuff I've written over the years," explains Gordon of the series, called – playfully – "Pilot Season."  "Every one has a different cast, a different story, and all fit the requirements for 'pandemic' filming – just a few characters and minimal, practical locations," she explains.  With a comedic tone she describes it as "Gilmore Girls" meets "Better Things."

If the idea of a spirited young woman under the age of 30 producing her own comedy special seems daunting, it'd help to explain that Victoria was literally born that way.  "I grew up in a family of storytellers and creators. Everyone on my mom's side was a musician."  In fact, her great-uncle, Dr. Ernst Katz, was the founder of the world famous Los Angeles Junior Philharmonic Orchestra and served as the conductor for 69 years, and was a Southern California institution for decades.  It was with the Junior Philharmonic at the ripe old age of two when Victoria was first pushed out on stage by her mother, with the instruction to deliver the baton to Dr. Katz.  "I don't remember it, but apparently I stole the show," she says today.

On her dad's side, Victoria is the granddaughter of legendary comedy writer Al Gordon, who joined the writing staff of the legendary "Jack Benny Program" just before it made the successful transition to Hollywood. The Emmy-winning Gordon later wrote for Carol Burnett, the Smothers Brothers, Flip Wilson, "Three's Company," and "227."  "Growing up in that house, I had two options," says Victoria.  "I could either get some attention by talking, or let everyone else overtake me.  Once I did, I didn't hold back."
