Whoopi Goldberg Going Back to Sci-Fi -- on the Web
The Oscar-winning actress and current host of 'The View' is starring in and producing a new online sci-fi thriller series called 'Stream' on FEARnet. FEARnet is a horror Web site and video-on-demand network. Goldberg had briefly retired as an actress, but the 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' alum saw the chance to reach a new audience in a cutting-edge medium and jumped at the chance.
"The idea that you can be at work and check out a webisode tickles me because that is the future... I can reinvent my way of acting so that I challenge myself and see where it takes me for the second half of my life," she said.
In "Stream," Goldberg stars as Jody Quinn, a troubled woman at war with herself. The series comprises six five-minute episodes that detail three distinct periods in the woman's life. The first episode premieres January 15 on FEARnet.
