The Bannen Way Nabs Two Webby Nods!



Crackle.com
's juggernaut web drama The Bannen Way is continuing to dominate the Internet content awards circuit. The addictive serial has been nominated for two Webby Awards, Best Drama and Best Editing. See, I told y'all this show was the bomb! Literally...lots of explosions in this one, I bet Vanessa Marcil thought she was on the set of Mobster General Hospital again playing sexy-as-hell supermodel/music exec, Brenda Barrett, as opposed to sexy-as-hell thief/Bannen bed buddy, Madison. Congrats to uber talented creators Mark Gantt (who also stars in the title role) and Jesse Warren. Now can someone put this show on network TV already? NBC oughta be on bended knees begging Sony for this show!

See Why I’m HOOKED on The Bannen Way!


From Crackle: 4: The Proposition

Okay, it is so not fair to compare The Bannen Way to any of the other web series we cover, considering the sleek, sexy serial got a $1 million investment from Sony, but a hella hot story doesn't cost much, and The Bannen Way definitely has one! Series creators Jesse Warren and Mark Gantt (who also stars as Neal Bannen, the coolest thief since Danny Ocean) definitely have a winner on their hands with this soap for guys about a thief who finds himself between the Mob and a hard place. General Hospital sex bomb Vanessa Marcil as the cunning Madison, certainly doesn't hurt the situation! Check out episodes 4-9 of The Bannen Way, then for more on the red hot series, visit my new favorite website for original, scripted content, Crackle.com!

DC Exclusive First Look: Sexy Vanessa Marcil Pics From New Web Series! (Photos)


Check out these scorching images of General Hospital and Las Vegas alum Vanessa Marcil from the set of her new Crackle.com web serial The Bannen Way. Marcil plays Madison, a sexy, street smart thief, who proves a ready match for series protagonist Neal Bannen (Mark Gantt). Here's what the Crackle.com PR peeps have to say about Marcil's character:

"Madison is a beautiful street thief and brilliant con-artist. No one can be sure what she's up to, where she's from, or if her name is even Madison. She proves to be Bannen's match when he tries to recruit her for a job but his manipulative tactics don't work on her. Their relationship is a constant chess match that usually ends in a stalemate. She can be his greatest asset but often times turns out to be his foil."

This show looks FIYA! Take a look at the pics below.
