Jena Malone Featured in New "WIGS" Series Written and Directed by Ami Canaan Mann

Available now on www.youtube.com/wigs

LOS ANGELES, July 9, 2012 -- "Dakota," the latest scripted series from WIGS stars Jena Malone ("Sucker Punch," "Into the Wild") and is written and directed by Ami Canaan Mann ("Friday Night Lights," "Texas Killing Fields"). Dakota is a tough single mother who pays the bills by playing poker, and right now, she's down. She sees a chance to reverse her fortunes when she's invited to a high-stakes home game, but she'll need a little luck and the help of someone unexpected to get back in the black. The three-episode series begins today and will air new episodes on Wednesday and Friday.

"What I think is so interesting about Ami's script is that Dakota's a woman that you usually don't see on screen," remarked Malone. "Dakota is smart, she's got charm, she's a gambler, but it's a healthy addiction. She's doing something to better herself and it's not disgusting. So I love that there's so many layers to work with - I just read the script and loved it."

Over the coming weeks and months, WIGS will be releasing content produced with a renowned group of writers and filmmakers, all starring female leads. Upcoming programming showcases actors including: Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Beals, Maura Tierney, Michael C. Hall, America Ferrera, Jason Isaacs, Allison Janney, Jane Kaczmarek, Rosanna Arquette, Walton Goggins, Jimmy Wolk, Gary Cole, Tim DeKay, Jason O'Mara, and Catherine O'Hara.

News Corp. Digital Media Group (NDM), a division of News Corporation, is the marketing partner for WIGS.
