Our favorite Medford native, Extra host Maria Menounos and her long-time boyfriend Keven Undergaro showed up at the Boston Film Festival the other night for a sneak preview of their new film, Serial Buddies which made its premiere at the festival. The movie was filmed in Connecticut last year. Undergaro wrote and directed the film, and Menounos stars in, and co-produced.
According to Undergaro in a recent Access Hollywood interview, the film is based on a former friend/employee of Undergaro’s with a “disconnected sociopathic personality.” The cast includes Christopher Lloyd, Kathie Lee Gifford and her daughter Cassidy (yes, you read that right) and Artie Lange of The Howard Stern Show fame. Lange made news in early 2010 after a suicide attempt in his home. He later recovered and returned to the comedy stage. Speaking of the “King of All Media,” Undergaro and Menounos visited his show back in April; check out some adult-rated snippets if you dare.
Serial Buddies doesn’t have an official release date yet, but based on the buzz we hope this wacky made in New England comedy gets picked up soon.
