Jena Malone to star in a new scripted series in newly YouTube launched WIGS channel

Apparently Jena Malone has a new scripted series as Dakota (as this WIGS Sizzle Reel video has shown and previewed, no info yet if her character's name will be the title of the series as it appears the first 3 series are title characters, but we'll find out more details on Jena's new WIGS series in the coming months...) in the newly YouTube launched The WIGS channel (see WIGS logo to your left), a new YouTube channel producing high-end scripted series, short films, and docs. WIGS -- Where It Gets Interesting. Premiering May 14, 2012.

Check out and watch the WIGS Sizzle Reel video featuring a couple of quick glimpse of Jena Malone as Dakota (included a few screen captures I made below...in case you didn't spot Miss Malone in the video reel, lol) as well as other JM movie news below...

Also, according to this related Forbes article...
For the first time, YouTube is about to launch an entertainment network with real programming and real stars. The filmmakers debuted it yesterday on Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia at Google’s Brandcast event today in New York. WIGS is described as “a digital channel featuring original series and short films exploring female characters.
