NEW YORK (March 11, 2014) – The multitalented Latina actress VANESSA VERDUGA is back and kicking-ass once again as a superheroine fighting against injustice and defying stereotypes in the second season of the award-winning web series “JUSTICE WOMAN.”
With over 1.4 million views worldwide, the comic-book stylized comedy-drama series centers around Sofia Escala (Verduga), battling the legal system by day as an Assistant District Attorney and then as the costumed crime fighter ‘Justice Woman’ by night. In her struggle to fight unfairness, corruption and inequality, our superheroine makes her way through various comedic adventures, sneaking into offices, leaking details to the press and simply out-smarting the bad guys with her brain.
The all-new episodes reveal Justice Woman on a quest to prove the innocence of the wrongly incarcerated migrant worker, Jesus Lopez. And, Season Two wouldn’t be the same without the return of her ‘closeted’ office mate Robert Gallion (Lee J. Kaplan), crime-fighting by her side during the day and as the extravagant side-kick Roberta by night. Also returning with big laughs this season is the sexually obsessed office chum Ruby (Mary S. Porter).
As the creator, writer, producer and star of the series, Verduga is thrilled to bring a second season to her fans. “I am proud and excited by the success and progress of ‘Justice Woman,’ especially by the overwhelming support of a heroine who is relatable to all women, independent of whether they're Latina or not. Something I believe is very important as it illustrates how we all have the same needs and desires for equitable treatment.”
Fans aren’t the only ones who’ve been paying attention to “Justice Woman.” The original series garnered high-praise for its first season, including earning Verduga an Outstanding Lead Actress Award at the LA Web Festival and the Excellence in Multimedia H.O.L.A. Award for from the Latino community for writing, directing, producing and acting duties.
“Justice Woman” has also earned official selection nods for the upcoming 2014 Los Angeles Web Festival and 2014 Vancouver Web Festival, a nomination for the 5th Annual Indie Series Awards and six nominations for the 2014 Rome Web Awards.
Verduga also recently launched a new comic book she wrote titled “Justice Woman Begins,” which tells the story of how the dynamic duo, Justice Woman and Roberta, met as children.
