Courtney Zito, who writes and direct her own web-based comedy series, Hollywood Girl, may have landed a soon-to-be music hit on her hands. Dominick DiPietrantonio’s “Only One For Me” has been running on the show for the past month, creating a buzz within the industry. Reportedly, producers from both The Voice and X Factor have been in touch with his management.
The show scripted by Zito is based on her real life experiences (both comic and blundering) in Los Angeles, in the form of the fledging character Quinn Monroe. A self-proclaimed cliché (aspiring actress by day and waitress by night), Quinn feels her dreams of silver screen stardom actualizing as a waking nightmare of never-ending obstacles and roadblocks. Broke, tired, confused and, constantly tripping over her mark, she’s literally bruised, at times self-deprecating, but delightfully determined and never defeated. With life, heart, spirit and the carefree, fun-loving support of her three best friends, Quinn looks past the setbacks and black-and-blues to see her shining star on the walk of fame, which to her isn’t too far ahead. She is determined to conquer Hollywood, but the road to stardom is full of missteps. “Two steps forward and ten steps back,” like the show’s original theme song says, “She’s there for life: She’s a Hollywood Girl,” says Zito.
Adds Dominick, “I found the show quite by accident, but immediately loved it. To tell you the truth, I came up with several possible songs for them and ultimately went with “Only One For Me.”
