I was fortunate to speak with Writer/Director Jorge A. Cano.

What inspired you to create a film during COVID-19?

JORGE CANO: STRESS! Stress and isolation have affected us all during COVID. I wanted to write a Comedy to help alleviate the stress and to send a message that no matter how difficult times are if we collaborate and work together we can accomplish incredible things!

Where was 'Secret Scandal filmed?

JORGE CANO: It took me nine months to plan how I was going to manage this. We had a limited crew. We filmed during the peak of the pandemic, in the USA (L.A. and N.Y,) Mexico, Venezuala, Ecuador. We were only allowed to have 4 people in a room at a time. We shot scenes in the actual houses where the actors live. This worked out really well and made it convenient.

How did you convince so many all-star actors to participate?

JORGE CANO: As I was writing the script I had a Wish-List in my mind of who would play each character. Every actor on my wish list said YES! I was very fortunate.

How did you get hooked up with DISTROTV?

JORGE CANO: When I approached them they were very positive about working with me. We plan on working together in the future, possibly a REALITY SHOW. The great thing about DISTROTV is that not only is it FREE, but you can choose if you want to watch the film in English or Spanish.

Thank you Jorge!
