The Chris Isaak Show

Lucci recurs as Tanya in two seasons


This was one of Luciana's very first roles, and she appeared in seven episodes during seasons 2 and 3. The series aired on Showtime from 2001 to 2004. Currently, DVDs are not legally available.

Summary of the show

The Chris Isaak Show takes an irreverent look at the sexy, outrageous backstage world of rock music. Featuring Chris, his real life band members and an ensemble of oddball characters, the stories offer a fanciful mix of fact and fiction and follow Chris on the road, into the studio and even onto his surfboard as he tries to live an ordinary life - in spite of - his chosen profession. The show was cancelled in 2004 due to Isaak's wish to continue with his music career. (Wikipedia)


Summary of Tanya's arc

Tanya is band member Anson's girlfriend. TBC

Luci showed a wonderful quarky comedic side from the short clips we have seen in her promo reel. She could fill the shoes of Sandra Bullock if given the chance. wink.gif

Sandra Bullock? huh.gif Interesting... I never thought of these actresses to be similar in any way. Perhaps it's just too long since I have seen a Bullock movie. These days I hardly watch movies anyway.

However, you're right in emphasizing the refreshingly different performances Lucci is doing in her CIS episodes. I'd love to see more of that. Hopefully, one day she'll have the opportunity to do comedy again.

BTW: I contacted the admin of the Chris Isaak fansite. Hopefully he can provide some additional information about Lucci's role, or even some pictures from other episodes.

Carro and Bullock are similar only in their comedic approach which is often one of bewilderment. laugh.gif wink.gif

Never thought of contacting the admin of the CIS fan site. scratchchin.gif In fact I didn’t even know there was one. Once again Pedda comes up with a brilliant idea. thumbsup.gif

This week, I talked to the webmaster of ChrisIsaak.nl, a fansite dedicated to everything concerning the singer ("Wicked Game") and actor, including his Showtime series "The Chris Isaak Show".

As it turns out, Luciana Carro appeared in fewer episodes than many of us may have expected, four in season 2 and one in season 3 (remember she's listed as a recurring guest star for both seasons on many sites).

Today I did an Internet search (again) for "The Chris Isaak Show". Unfortunately it was never released on DVD, nor is it available for download at the usual places.

On the Amazon.com page for this series you can sign up for an email notification should it ever be released. Also notice there is Luciana's name in the actors list.

It looks like the only way to get these episodes is to buy TV rips of the entire series, which is quite costly, even for a luccinatic like me.

I know this thread hasn't been active for a long time, but I just wanted to post this little scoop about the availability for the sake of completeness. wink.gif

Nice! clap.gif Well, kind of. At least there is a chance we'll get to see it one day. Then again, there's simply no way at this point that I can afford $75 (excl. shipping!) fpr something like that. But they have it! *argh* Guys, let's get the ram. ninja.gif

Yikes! A lot of money for something that didn't come from the studio. Ugh, weird how some things take FOREVER to get released on DVD.

I am not sure but I think as is always the case with movies or video with songs in them, their might be copyright issues releasing the DVD's. Ive heard of other movies where some songs had to be removed and replaced with other songs so they could get it released on video.

I would really love to see this. Lucci appeared quite energetic and very funny. And so different from everything else she has done.

Same for me. The cons drained my finances (but it was worth it!), so I can't afford these videos. Maybe some day I'll buy them.

I just did some calculations. If Solium ordered the set, sent one package with the copies of the relevant discs to, say, Frosty, and if our fellow German sent one package to me and one to Michael, the total costs (incl. each shipping, excl. blank DVD's) would be around 100 dollars (66 euros).

Divided by four, this would mean 25 dollars or 17 euros (which is some four euros more than us Germans will pay for the FF issue). Not to put pressure on anyone, but what do you think?

Well, I would certainly be willing to pay 25 bucks for it, so yes, I think the idea is good.

Oh, and just to whet your appetite: When asked about her most embarrassing audition (during her joint panel with Patrick Currie), Luciana chose to talk about her very first successful audition, "The Chris Isaak Show". To get the role, she was asked to strip to a song of her own choice - however, she wasn't supposed to look sexy doing that, but clumsy. laugh.gif

Lucci stripped to the Destiny's Child smash hit "Bootylicious", which is why I'll never be able to listen to that album or song again without getting the giggles during "I don't think you're ready for this jelly". naughty.gif Anyway, I know these episodes are gonna be frakkin' funny.

Poor Lucci, I really felt sorry for her when she told that story. She said she wondered if the audition tapes really are destroyed afterwards, or if someone kept that copy.
Since she is rather shy, stripping in front of the casting director wasn't exactly very pleasant for her.

Guess so, that must've been tough, especially since it was one of the first auditions in her entire TV career. unsure.gif I just hope she didn't have to do it in front of an aged casting director who was reader at the same time and said "I love you"... ^^

As for the video, who knows if such a peculiar sexy/clumsy combo would've been the deal maker for Ugly Betty? wink.gif

Honestly I hardly see where a comical strip tease is a prerequisites for the job. Unless of course your going to star in a comedy about a stripper. Seriously, I think thats in very poor taste and objectifies any actress trying to get an acting gig. Kinda angers me to tell the truth.
