Katie Anne Naylon Talks FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL…

     August 29, 2012


Katie Anne Naylon worked as a phone-sex operator. Let’s get that out of the way upfront.  From that experience, she co-wrote (alongside star Lauren Miller) the upcoming For A Good Time, Call…: a light bubble-gum comedy that fully embraces the inherent silliness to oohing and ahhing into a phone to make money.  The film uses such a wanton backdrop to explore the bond and closeness of a burgeoning female friendship.  Guys, for the most part, are a secondary concern in the film – voices over a phone to be exploited for their bank account.  It’s a film that attempts to de-stigmatize the ‘lewdness’ of the phone-sex trade – because at the end of the day both parties come out happy, be it sexually or financially.  In the eyes of the film – it’s a win-win situation.

In the following interview with Naylon, she discusses her background as a phone-sex operator, the rewriting process on For A Good Time, Call…, and her future projects in development on TV.  For the full interview, hit the jump.  For A Good Time, Call… opens this Friday.
