Shelly Honoured Two Years After Murder
Late filmmaker/actress ADRIENNE SHELLY will be remembered next week (beg17Nov08) when a script she wrote before her tragic murder has its first public reading at a New York ceremony in her honour.
Shelly was killed in November 2006 by construction worker Diego Pillco - convicted to 25 years in jail after pleading guilty to strangling the Waitress director.
Pillco had been renovating another apartment in the New York building at the time and was caught by Shelly trying to rob her apartment before the tragic incident.
Her satire entitled The O Letters is set to be unveiled at the second annual Adrienne Shelly Foundation gala at New York University on Monday (17Nov08).
The script revolves around five letters discovered in the year 4046, written to someone named Steadman by a woman who signs them O.
Among those set to attend the event include Shelly's Waitress co-stars Cheryl Hines, Keri Russell and Jeremy Sisto.
