The big news today is the pending debut of PASSIONFLIX, a new streaming, on-demand entertainment service that’s the NetFlix of romance. Passionflix is the brainchild of three extraordinary women. In this “League of Extraordinary GentleWomen,” there’s an award-winning team: pro producer/directors Tosca Musk and Jina Panebianco, and expert screenwriter Joany Kane. (Some of you might know the Musk name; Tosca’s brother Elon founded Tesla and Paypal.)
Besides offering an exciting on-demand selection of beloved romantic films and series, they are also filming high-quality movies and series, many of them based on best-selling books in the romance genre. September 2017 is the launch date, but they just opened for Founding Member and Pre-launch subscription deals, so I snagged a special limited-time invitation for my readers right here from Tosca to get your Passionflix membership first (described below).
They have just wrapped filming on romantic comedy, Hollywood Dirt, based on a novel by Alessandra Torre, who is a New York Times best-selling novelist. Other films are being made from popular authors including my friends Melissa Foster and J. Kenner, and Jill Shalvis, Sylvia Day, and many other favorite chart-toppers. This is an important step and outlet for authors and women in film, and one I whole-heartedly support. This is the A-team, and the project is smart and first-class all the way. It’s by women and for women, but we sure welcome you sweet fellows, too. (Plus, you get to see romance from our point of view–and that can’t hurt!)
The BON Factor
Of course, there are the Hollywood blockbusters and small films in the on-demand stacks, too. The founders were dishing over The Thornbirds (one of their faves, so you know their good taste), and other classics, new movies, and series. I got a peek at the site under development and it’s utterly fabulous. I might never write again… (just kidding!). From Mr. Darcy to Mr. Grey, it’s all there, along with a BON rating. What’s a BON rating? Glad you asked: Barometer of Naughtiness, from 1 to 5. They seem to have thought of everything, thank you.
Founding Memberships & Pre-Subscriptions
Tosca gave me a special backstage pre-launch deal to share with my friends and readers. It’s only good for a limited time, so if you’re interested, grab it now. There are two levels, one with special perks, and another screaming economy deal, so you can select the one best for you. (I couldn’t resist the Founding Member deal!) Choose the one you like and join the party!
