MUSIC LICENSING DEAL WITH ERIC SHIVELEY
City's Edge has completed a licensing
agreement with Colorado musician Eric
Shiveley for show segments expected to be available in spring
2003. Shiveley expands the roster of emerging Colorado talent with
agreements to include their songs in the soundtrack of City's
Edge. "Shiveley's poignant, stylistically aching work lets us
incorporate emotive pop sounds you might normally hear in David
Lynch projects like 'Twin Peaks' and 'Blue Velvet,'" explains Robert
Berg III, producer.
FEATURING THE LEGENDARY MISS JOEY LANE
City's Edge makes a Christmas wish
with Joey Lane, the legendary drag queen who's former titles include

two-part City's Edge episode, premiering Dec. 24, 2002, and Jan.
7, 2003, features Lane's first soap-opera appearance. Lane guest-stars
as herself, a gorgeous bar-hopper who becomes the object of a City's
Edge character's inebriated fantasies.
2003 SEASON BEGINS!
The 2003 Season of City's Edge starts
today with the premiere of "Bed, Office, & Beyond -

deals with Boulder artist Katoorah
Jayne for music in Episode 4 (coming next spring) and again

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DENVER HOME TO NEW FRONTIER OF VIDEO PRODUCTION
-- It's new! It's sexy! It's at the frontier of entertainment ...
and it's produced in Denver! The latest wave in digital video production
gives "soap opera" a new meaning ... one your mother and grandmother
never imagined! A show made for the busy, wired, urban professional,
the self-employed lone-eagle, the stay-at-home mom, the college
student, and anyone else with a sense for adventure, a touch of
voyeurism and a desire for a bit of saucy entertainment to break
up their day. CITY'S EDGE
is a new digital soap opera written, produced,
and performed by Denver-area artists that premieres this spring
on the Internet! At home, at work, on the road, or in a cybercafe
on the other side of the planet, you can watch the dramas of your
favorite characters unfold anytime you want. You'll meet Lexi Parish,
a beautiful, young, vibrant, Ivy League urbanite, who moves to Denver
from New York to become a Senior Producer for Lightspeed, Inc.,
a Denver-based Internet company. With the help of her hipster assistant,
Brad Williams, she quickly gets entangled with a diverse cast of
characters. From Dani Hartley, the flirtatious office "party girl",
to the tall, handsome, and ambitious Jonathan Price, a Denver stockbroker
with a penchant for beautiful women, to Patricia Ryan, the sophisticated
wife of a powerful industrialist, to escaped felon-on-the-run, Trent
Mason, Lexi's life in Denver will never be quite the same! With
high production values rarely seen on the Internet, and a hot, cutting-edge
music score, each episode of CITY'S
EDGE leaves the viewer wanting
more and always wondering what will happen next! Charter subscriptions
