DeVanity is an award-winning web series created and based in Los Angeles. It is the soapy story of a family owned multimillion dollar jewelry dynasty run by Jason DeVanity (played by creator Michael Caruso). Viewers can watch all four seasons of the show at http://www.DeVanity.com.
At the top of its game DeVanity recently aired its final episode. We caught up with creator/star Michael Caruso. Here is what he had to say about the show.
Flo DiBona: You recently aired the last DeVanity episode and it sounded like an emotional time for you. How are you?
Michael Caruso: It was an emotional time for me, and to be perfectly honest it still is. It's like saying goodbye to a good friend or family member. I'm doing really well though. I think as more time goes by it will get easier. I have days where I really miss it, and I others where I'm at peace with the fact that it's over.
FD: For readers who may not be familiar can you briefly describe the premise of the series?
MC: DeVanity is a soap opera about the DeVanity family which controls a powerful jewelry empire In downtown LA, and their assorted scandals. Think a modern 80's prime time soap.
FD: What inspired you to create DeVanity?
MC: I was tired of waiting for my phone to ring. I wanted to create the kind of show I have always wanted to be on, so instead of waiting for someone to give me an opportunity, I decided to create one for myself. Best decision I ever made.
FD: Once you get over the adjustment of ending DeVanity are their more projects on the horizon?
MC: Yes. Currently I'm developing a project, which I am getting incredibly excited about, but it is going to be a while. My nerves are way too shot to jump into producing a new show right now, and I am going to have to build a new team from scratch so I don't want to rush into anything.
FD: Michael thank you so much for sharing time with our readers. We look forward to hearing about your next project.
MC: Thank you for the questions, and thank you to all the loyal and wonderful viewers of DeVanity who stuck by us. You mean the world to me and I will never forget all the love you have shown us.
