As discussed in a recent New York Times article, Hollywood is still puzzling out the YouTube problem. In the meantime, the less fortunate (read d-list), are taking full advantage of it. Take Illeanarama “Supermarket of the Stars,”an independent project starring Illeana Douglass, which has found a second—make that third—life on it.

Originally made as a short film in 2004 by indie producers Angelika Films, Illeanarama was then made into a pilot for the Oxygen Network the following year. When the network passed, producers chopped the film, pilot and outakes down into 5 segments (of roughly 5 minutes each) and rolled it out as a YouTube series.
