Charlie Vaughn’s First Period stars Brandon Alexander III and Dudley Beene as a pair of hapless teenage girls who just want to be popular.  The supporting cast includes Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark), Jack Plotnick (Space Station 76), Rebekah Kochan (The Eating Out series), Michael Turchin (“Lance Loves Michael”), Judy Tenuta (Going Down in La-La Land) and Diane Salinger (“Salem”).

New girl Cassie and school outcast Maggie are easily the most unpopular girls at their high school. Together, they decide the way to win the hearts of cute boys and popular girls is to enter–and win–the annual talent show. But popular rivals Heather, Other Heather, and their hot boyfriends Dirk and Brett will stop at nothing to keep Cassie and Maggie the laughing stock of the school. It’s going to take courage, a make over, and maybe even a rap battle to beat them in true 80s style.

The DVD release of First Period will exclusively include a feature length commentary with director Charlie Vaughn, stars Dudley Beene and Brandon Alexander III and editor Corey Ziemniak, a making of featurette, deleted scenes and a deleted song.
