Published on LatinoLA: February 10, 2011
Livier Productions Inc. announced that season 3 of their Award-winning web series, "Ylse" is now in pre-production.

Season 3 cast includes:
Alex De Hoyos, Alex Mendoza, Alma Delfina, Carolyn Wilson, Darcy Shean, David Barrera, Gabriel Romero, Hector Hank, Hector Bustamante, Iran Daniel, Ivonne Coll, Jon Huertas, Jonathan Nichols, Jordan Segura, Judy Reyes, Kristen Ariza, Marabina Jaimes, Marlene Forte, Martin Morales, Noah Applebaum, Richard Y??iguez, Ruth Livier, Tokala Clifford and Yvette Yates.
With two successful seasons already under its belt, YLSE has been honored with the Cover of the WGA's WRITTEN BY Magazine and has garnered two New Media awards:
2010 IMAGEN AWARDS "Best Internet Program" -Winner
2009 REEL RASQUACHE Film Festival "Audience Favorite" ‘«ŰWinner
This bicultural web series has effectively found a worldwide audience that reaches far beyond a target niche market.
