Why Is Jessica Rose Not on TV?

September 9, 2008 12:00 PM

Yes, Jessica Rose is the star of the new Web show “Sorority Forever,” but even if she weren’t you can’t really take your eyes off of her.

The actress who broke out of the pack when she played Bree in the first installment of “LonelyGirl15” is back online, headlining TheWb.com’s original Web show “Sorority Forever,” which launched Monday.

I watched the first two episodes today, and it’s abundantly clear to me that Jessica Rose has star potential. She has charisma, she has the “it” factor, she will be a big breakout star in traditional media, too. OK, I’m not telling you something you don’t already know. Still, watch this episode and tell me if you agree or disagree.

Oh and memo to TheWB.com: Could you maybe not run so many annoying ads and promos in front of and after every single solitary piece of video on your site? We get the point. You show episodes of “Friends,” “Buffy,” etc. Enough. Now back off a little bit.

I think Sorority Forever has a great chance of building an audience and going to Television as a Mid-Season replacement.
