‘Voxxy’ site geared to Gen-Y girls

Female exex team to create, back Website

Former “Ellen” scribe Maxine Lapiduss and “Girl Power: Young Women Speak Out” author Hillary Carlip have teamed up with Steeplechase Media partner and former MTV producer Kristi Kaylor to help launch the latest Web site geared toward the Gen-Y crowd.

“Voxxy,” the brainchild of Kaylor, will launch in spring 2000 with four short, episodic series developed specifically for teen girls.

The trio have signed a number of Hollywood-based women executives to back the project, including ICM co-president Nancy Josephson and former Telemundo Entertainment prexy Nely Galan.

Other backers include Billie Jean King, “Judging Amy” exec producer Connie Tavel and “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” star Caroline Rhea. Steeplechase Media CEO Larry Namer will serve as a consultant.

Programming will include an animated teen soap opera, a dating show and a bilingual sitcom produced by Galan’s newly formed production house.

“We welcome the disparateness of voices and originality of thought,” Lapiduss said.

Kaylor said Voxxy is finishing its second round of financing but declined to talk specifics. The group said it doesn’t plan to sign a major media partner at this point.

“We’re approaching this with a very grassroots, renegade feel,” Kaylor said.
