Ted V. Mikels Announces Sequel to Ten Violent Women

TVM Studios has announced a sequel to the studio’s highly successful film "Ten Violent Women."  The new production, "Ten Violent Women, Part Two" will start filming in September 2015 with Ted V. Mikels directing and co-producing along with Drew Marvick.  John Cornett is slated to be first assistant director; Keith Harris, international marketing coordinator; and Wendy O. Altamura, PhD, editorial consultant.  Janet Leigh will assume the post of director's assistant.

"Ten Violent Women, Part Two" is a feature film about female bodybuilders, dedicated to active exercise.  The film will also explore females who seek physical beauty recognition for their muscular bodies, martial arts, wrestling, boxing, and beauty pageant appearances. The sequel is also being described as: "Starring Francine York, a heavy drama about the drug syndicate, kidnappings, murder, and vengeance, will also include good cops, bad cops, good guys, bad guys, etc.”  Dawna Lee Heising of Eye on Entertainment will be one of the Ten Violent Women.

Legendary filmmaker Ted V. Mikels heads TVM Studios, a Las Vegas-based film and video production studio, which he founded in 1993. Mikels is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Certificate of Recognition by Nevada Lieutenant Governor Lorraine T. Hunt for his contributions to the filmmaking industry.

In addition to being the subject of a book, Film Alchemy: The Independent Cinema of Ted V. Mikels, by Christopher Wayne Curry, Mikels is also the subject of a documentary film, “The Wild World of Ted V. Mikels.” Released in 2010, the film was narrated by internationally known director John Waters and directed by Kevin Sean Michaels. Also famous for his eccentric life style, Mikels at one period in his life lived with a harem of beauties in a castle replete with secret passageways.

Considered a pioneering master of low-budget movie making, Mikels’ influence has permeated numerous facets of the entertainment world, including a tribute song, “The Astro-Zombies” by the punk band “The Misfits,” the template for the TV series, “Charlie’s Angels,” and the look of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.”

Ted V. Mikels' production of “The Doll Squad”, the predecessor of “Charlie’s Angels”, and “Mission Killfast” are out this month on digitally re-mastered Blu-Ray. “Doll Squad” and his feature “Ten Violent Women” are now seen on Turner Entertainment channels. His last film "Paranormal Extremes: Text Messages from the Dead" was released in 2014 and is being distributed by SGL Entertainment.
