Lonely Girl 15 creators get another crack at turning their storytelling skills into cash, according to Deborah Netburn in the LAT. Bebo.com will host Lonelygirl15 Presents…KateModern, with a 19 year old British student, her friends, family and some occult-ish forces.
Sounds a great deal like Hex on the BBC.
Miles Beckett, Greg Goodfried and Mesh Flanders are looking for writers and directors in London, where Beckett will executive-produce. They’re all excited that there’s enough money to do the web series, which will debut in early July.

Bebo is hoping for product placement and ad tie-ins, like H & M and Cover Girl.
