PBS - Lunch Ladies Go High-Brow With Flickers Rhode Island Film Fest

Causing major dissent in top hoity-toity circles around the world, the low-brow Lunch Ladies have gone high-brow to screen on Rhode Island PBS.

It all started back in 2018 when the reprehensible duo forced Oscar-Qualifying Flickers Rhode Island Film Fest into a selection. Next they proceeded to hoodwink some clueless filmmakers into rooting for them under the guise of the Lunch Ladies Catering Service, and finally, adding insult to injury they attempted to steal Amelia Allwarden's Best Editing trophy that she won from the jury.

It was a difficult time for Flickers, but they survived, breathing a sigh of relief when they hadn't heard from the Ladies for more than three years.

However, like a persistent case of lice, no dice, the notorious women are back.

Said Seretta, daintily sipping tea from a plastic tumbler she got at the 99 cents store: "It was time to return. We, therefore, coerced er... convinced PBS, Rhode Island to screen us in the February Flickers Fest Double Feature Program. Tell 'em, Lou."

LouAnne, murdering an English accent while thumbing through a moldy Miss Manners book that she found dumpster diving, primly nodded: "We merely threatened er... offered to whip up some "special" Lunch Ladies canapes if they refused."

BOTH: "Bloody genius! Thanks for screening us Flickers and PBS Rhode Island!"

Lunch Ladies will play on PBS Rhode Island on Thursday, February 11, 2021 8-9PM Eastern. Info can be found HERE!

Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival is now in its 25th year and is ranked as one of the top 10 U.S. festivals. It is New England’s only Academy Award-qualifying festival.

PBS Rhode Island serves the needs of all generations within Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Guided by civic engagement, they provide unique, high-quality local, national and international programming, and digital content that educates, inspires and entertains.
