Los Angeles, CA. United States
The newest rock-comedy on YouTube, “Loch Ness”, is a web series about a folk-metal band from Omaha, Nebraska, made by UNL graduates in Los Angeles. Loch Ness is a comedy that will bring you back to your high school days and remind you what it was like rocking out, sneaking out, and just having fun! In this story, we follow the band “Loch Ness”‘s keyboardist Donna who along with her bandmates Joey, Kyle, and Steve, has a terrible time holding onto a lead singer. Between their problems completing their lineup, and Donna’s busybody parents, each episode is a struggle to keep this band together long enough to win the prize at the big show.
Created by Omaha native Christina Marie Leonard, Produced by UNL graduates Max Holm and Mijoe Sahiouni, as well as Rachel Gunnerson (also from the midwest) and starring Papillion native Chris Muckey and UNL graduates Jim Hanna and Lindsey Jean Routzel, the team came together to raise 10K on kickstarter and create a show to inspire laughter and bring back great memories. “Even though Loch Ness broke up during high school, it has remained a huge part of my life and inspired me to write this web series about a band with the same name” Stated Christina Marie Leonard, from her home in Toluca Lake, CA.
Christina Marie Leonard has been living in Los Angeles nearly 4 years, getting her start in “Riley Rewind”, which boasted 2,677,764 views in the first episode alone, and was then picked up by Netflix.
She now performs stand-up regularly in Los Angeles, as well as acting and producing short and hosting “The Hidden Rebels Podcast” on iTunes and “The Nebraska Coast Connection” salon at the Culver City hotel.
