Last night was the world premier of new documentary series Startupland, by DC director Justin Gutwein (pictured third from left) at E Street Cinema in downtown DC. The series will follow five entrepreneurs from different walks of life as they attempt to get their start up businesses off the ground. For an indy production, Startupland has some pretty big names attached to it. Venture Capitalist Jonathan Perrelli is the main producer, and the pilot episode we saw featured an appearance by former AOL Chairman and CEO Steve Case and LivingSocial founder¬†Tim O’Shaughnessy. Case walked in right as we were leaving, so we didn’t get to talk to him, but other notables in attendance were Hollywood on the Potomac’s Janet Donovan,¬†Rebecca Cooper from WJLA, and Pamela Sorensen from Pamela’s Punch.
