Bill Belichick’s significant other, Linda Holliday , and Channel 7’s Janet Wu joined photographer Cheryl Richards at her party and raffle at the Park Plaza on Wednesday night. The event benefited Fairy DogParents, the Victim Rights Law Center, and Symphony Nova. Other guests included local actresses Erica McDermott andMelissa McMeekin — two of Mark Wahlberg’s sisters in “The Fighter” — who disclosed to pals that they’ve started their own production company with business partner Keri Anne Shea. The on-screen siblings, who hope to produce television and film, are calling their operation KupuKupu Productions.
January 17, 2013'Fighter' actress developing Gloucester TV showBy Gail McCarthyStaff Writer
ROCKPORT — Melissa McMeekin, who played one of the seven sisters in Mark Wahlberg’s “The Fighter,” has kept busy with acting jobs. But most recently her work has focused on the formation of a production company with other actors, including one who also played a sister in the Hollywood film.
In her acting work, McMeekin had a small principal role in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and was a recurring character on NBC’s “30 Rock.” Meanwhile, the Rockport resident began writing a screenplay, developing pitches for both a one-hour drama and a sitcom, and exploring docu-reality programming.
“I found I was collaborating frequently with Erica McDermott, one of the other ‘Fighter’ sisters, as well as actress-TV host Keri Anne Shea, based out of Connecticut, so it seemed a natural evolution that we should form an alliance, and develop our own production development company,” said McMeekin.
The result is Kupu-Kupu Productions.
“We have a slate of projects we are working on including several reality television series,” she said. “We are already working with a production company in L.A. to develop a Gloucester-based reality show, as well as a show based on the South Shore, and traditional network programming.”
One of Kupu-Kupu’s top priorities has been focusing on the pre-production phase of McMeekin’s screenplay, “Funeral Drill,” which she described as a dark comedy about a woman who, upon hearing she is dying, decides to plan her own over-the-top funeral.
