LOS ANGELES — Adult Time has announced they have begun pre-production on a new original feature, “Teenage Lesbian,” an autobiographical coming-of-age story written and directed by two-time XBIZ Director of the Year and Adult Time showrunner Bree Mills.
The feature will be released this September as both a mainstream R-rated film and an X-rated three-episode series within Adult Time. Set in the 1990s, the story unfolds as a series of memories of an 18-year-old lesbian as she gradually comes to terms with her sexual orientation during her final year of high school. XBIZ Award-winning actress Kristen Scott has been tapped for the lead role, which is directly inspired by true-life events.
“I wanted to tackle a coming-of-age story that would set a new standard for authenticity within the traditional lesbian genre,” Mills said. “It had to be real in its portrayal of lesbian sexuality and the struggles of coming out, not just glossy fluff or shot from a male gaze. ‘Teenage Lesbian’ is a film about what it was like to be young and gay in the pre-Ellen era, the final decade before gay rights became a public conversation. Ultimately, I decided the best way to portray this was simply to tell my own story.”
“Teenage Lesbian” also features Alina Lopez, Kenna James, Aidra Fox, Whitney Wright, Kendra Spade, Emily Willis, and “many other notable adult actors and actresses in both sex and non-sex roles,” according to a rep.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have been cast as the lead in this project,” Scott said. “I always love having the opportunity to work with Bree, so to be able to play such a significant role in a story that is so personal to her is such an honor. I just can’t wait to bring this coming of age story to life!”
Scheduled for release on Adult Time “for all lesbian fans to enjoy,” including members of Gamma Films’ Girlsway studio, “Teenage Lesbian” aims to offer viewers “a potent reminder about the power of unconditional acceptance in a world fraught with divisiveness, criticism and judgment,” stated a rep.
