the anything and everything talk and entertainment TV show


FPA and Potluck are going high def on March 5 on Channel 10!

Hi! I'm the producer of the show, Gayle Yiotis, and no, Potluck is not a cooking show (although that doesn't mean we won't have cooking segments), it's a talk show. I named it Potluck because you just never know what we'll dish up next on this show. We will interview interesting people from all walks of life in the DC Metropolitan area, and even beyond.

Please scroll down to "Update" for news of upcoming shows.

Our Potluck co-producer and host, Laura Hartman.

Having grown up with parents in the theatre, Laura Hartman was put on stage at the tender age of four. She took drama classes and landed roles in musicals and plays. After high school, she decided that the stage was not to be her full time career, and Laura went off to college to pursue a career in Computer Science.

In 2005, she felt the acting bug nagging at her once again, and decided to get back involved with acting, but by way of the "independent films" route. She worked on a Sci-Fi TV Pilot, produced by Disney, and started to do online interviews with local Independent artists for a show called “Hollywood In Washington DC." For two years, she was the Co-Founder of the World Music And Independent Film Festival.

Laura became a member at Fairfax County Public Access in February of 2011 where she volunteered for production work and behind the camera experience, and later was asked to help out with the “Potuck Show” while Meera was on hiatis. She has since become the co-producer and host of the show, and has enjoyed every moment working with other FPA members like Beth Olson, Ahmed Selim, Peter Scheps, and Co-producer Gayle Yiotis.
