Cheri Oteri Signs on to play the lead in Film Being Shot in Philly

Finally life is coming back to the film industry in Philly, I hear that Cheri Oteri has signed on to play the lead in a film being shot in Philly. The project is the dream of three South Philly gals, Krystal Tini, Jennifer Tini, and Monique Impagliazzo (who used to work for Barwood Production) who currently live in LA but are bringing it back home to Philly to film.

Turkey Movie

You’ll recall Cheri was on SNL 1995 – 2000 playing iconic roles like Barbara Walters and Ariana Huffington as well as other great characters.

Turkey’s literally fly when an impatient housewife waits for her cheating husband to come home for a Thanksgiving dinner he will never forget.

Turkey’s Done is a short comedic film revolving around Peaches Brocco, a South Philly housewife, who is impatiently waiting for her cheating husband to come home for a Thanksgiving he’ll never forget! With support from her neighbors (some of them begrudgingly) Peaches finally has the chance to walk away from the man who has strayed one too many times after remaining by his side for years during his incarceration…
