Angela Robinson, writer and producer of the upcoming “Girltrash: All Night Long,” has officially cut all formal ties with Power Up, the non-profit LGBT film company.
Robinson, the award winning out writer/director, and producer of both HBO’s True Blood and Hung, has released an official statement today withdrawing all official endorsement, affiliation, and support of Girltrash: All Night Long: As Presented by Power Up, the musical comedy based on her extremely successful web series.
Power Up, the non-profit film production company aimed at empowering LGBT people through film and education, has earned praise for producing & financing LGBT films with Codikow at the helm since 2001. However, Robinson’s statement and refusal to be officially associated with the Power UP version of her film is the first public acknowledgement of the tensions rumored to have been brewing between herself and Codikow.
Robinson’s decision to publically speak out on the subject quickly follows Power Up’s announcement of a screening in Palm Springs, one that Robinson claims she did not approve. More surprising is that Robinson, also known for producing Showtime’s The L Word, claims to have not yet seen the film that Power Up has set for DVD release in December, and claims the film is “unfinished.”
