With twice weekly releases, Beyond the Spotlights seeks out interesting talent, giving new viewers and long-time fans a glimpse into the private worlds of fascinating celebrities of all types. With original photo shoots, interviews and stories not found anywhere else, Beyond the Spotlights is poised to quickly become a go-to celebrity info destination.

Leeann Tweeden
Tweeden recently made world-wide headlines when she went public with her story of sexual assault at the hands of Senator Al Franken. The subsequent public scandal and media attention led to the resignation of a United States Senator and added a great deal of momentum to the #MeToo movement. Tweeden sat down with Beyond the Spotlights to talk about her life after the scandalous headlines, including dealing with the backlash and criticism, ignoring Twitter, and the support she received from some big-name Hollywood celebrities.

Darryl Strawberry
Four-time World Series Champion and 8-time MLB All-Star, Darryl Strawberry's baseball career unfortunately ended early due to multiple suspensions for drug violations. As it turns out, Strawberry's greatest challenge was not the opposing pitchers on the baseball field, but rather, facing down addiction. He talks about his new book, "Don't Give Up On Me: Shedding Light On Addiction," and his support of the faith-based Darryl Strawberry Recovery Centers.

Xolo Maridueña
The breakout star of YouTube Red's new series, "Cobra Kai," Maridueña has become the latest exciting addition to the "Karate Kid" franchise. Maridueña talks about juggling karate lessons and class, as well as his love of the LA Dodgers and his goals as a future screenwriter. The young actor also manages to keep perspective, citing his family as one of his most important sources of strength and resolve.

Victoria Konefal
Playing Ciara Brady on NBC's Emmy-winning "Days of Our Lives," Konefal opens up about funny pick-up lines, fashion, her professional and personal likes and dislikes, as well as her obsession with dogs. Konefal is just as candid while discussing the stresses of her fast-paced career as well as her passions as an environmentally conscious actress.

"Due to the closure of many popular print publications (e.g. Interview, Details, Teen Vogue, Complex, Nylon, Self, etc.) and the public's thirst for new and constant content, Beyond The Spotlights will be based entirely online — updated regularly with new articles and interviews. The website is optimized for mobile use, but its beautiful photography and videos stand out on larger tablet and desktop formats as well. Take a look. We're proud of our first cast of celebrity exclusives," said Creative Director Mario Barberio.
