FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OMG!! THE REAL WORLD AND IN-GAME POLITICS COLLIDE:
SEASON 4 OF THE GUILD AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 22
New DVD Release of Felicia Day’s Wildly Popular Web Series
December 21, 2010 − Hot off the cliffhanger to Season 3, Codex (Felicia Day) scrambles to justify her impetuous encounter with Rival Guild Leader, Fawkes (Wil Wheaton), to herself and her Guild. It’s Guildie vs. Guildie when Vork announces a fundraising competition for design rights to the new Guild Hall. Meanwhile, Zaboo and Vork deal with a real-world house guest, Tink and Clara pair up to make some quick cash, and Codex’s computer problems force her to work at a real job (OMG) with Bladezz (OMFG!).
With more than 65 million views web-wide, THE GUILD’s popularity continues to grow (Ms. Day boasts more than 1.7 million followers on Twitter). The original comedic web series has won numerous awards, including the SXSW, YouTube and Yahoo Web Series Awards in 2008, and 3 Streamy Awards in 2009: Best Comedy Web Series, Best Ensemble, and Best Actress for Ms. Day. Most recently, THE GUILD expanded into a graphic novel series from Dark Horse Comics, and a new trade paperback (all three issues in one bound edition, with added features) was recently released in November 2010.
Felicia Day is known for her roles in Joss Whedon’s hugely popular Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Next spring, she will appear for the first time in the SyFy Channel’s hit TV series, Eureka. Produced by Kim Evey (Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show,) and directed by Sean Becker (Emmy award-winning short film, Parallel/Parallel), THE GUILD also stars Vincent Caso as “Bladezz,” Jeff Lewis as “Vork,” Amy Okuda as “Tinkerballa,” Sandeep Parikh as “Zaboo,” and Robin Thorsen as “Clara.” (http://www.watchtheguild.com).
