The great and colorful, and everybody’s favorite, actress Donna Pescow will be joining us on Ken Boxer LiveMonday, July 30th, 2018. 

“In 1977, Pescow played Annette in the John Travolta film Saturday Night Fever. For this role, she had to relearn her Brooklyn accent (which she had significantly reduced for professional reasons). While her role, and the film, were huge successes, she later went on to appear in television roles for most of her career. For this role, she was the New York Film Critics’ third place choice for their award for Best Supporting Actress. (Wikipedia)

“Also in 1977, Pescow joined the cast of the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, portraying Celena Arquette. The role proved to be brief, lasting under a year, but it helped to launch a successful television career for Pescow, including roles on two other ABC soap operas in later years.” (Wikipedia)

These are only her most prominent roles.  There are many, many more.

Please join us for a very exciting show.

Ken Boxer Live welcomes actress and producer Melanie Marden to our TVSB Ken Boxer Live studios.

To quote from Melanie Marden’s bio:

“Melanie Marden is an award winning actress and producer who became popular when she was chosen as Mattels’ life-sized Barbie. She went on to star in a series of Super Bowl commercials, which is when Melanie caught the attention of producers, who quickly offered her the lead role in the film Pigs, an American Pie-like film. This is where the world first met Melanie. Final Draft, with James Vanderbeek, a movie written with Melanie in mind, followed shortly after.

“An entrepreneur and humanitarian at heart, Melanie founded a beauty and wellness concierge company.  Flashing her high voltage smile and exuding enough energy to single-handedly fuel the West Coast power grid, it’s no wonder Marden has become one of the hottest new talents.”
