Hey, I'm Alison, Laura,!

Los Angeles, California

Heart Baby Eggplant is a single-camera comedy - created by Alison Haislip, Laura Ortiz, and Rati Gupta - about 3 girlfriends, from 3 different backgrounds, in 3 different styles of relationships doing their best to guide and support each other, even though they might not understand the others' life choices, experiences, or goals. It's a modern millennial take on Sex and the City inspired by the real life stories of a diverse group of women living, loving, and (most importantly) laughing in Los Angeles.


Alison Haislip is an American actress and television host who most recently can be seen on the current season of NBC's SUPERSTORE. She recurred on Alan Tudyk & Nathan Fillion’s hit SyFy show, CON MAN, and was a series lead on Hulu’s first original series, BATTLEGROUND, produced by Marc Webb.  She currently hosts her own podcast on the Starburns Audio Network, “The Half Hour Happy Hour: Ladies Night”, and just recently starred in the soon-to-be-finished film, ALLAN THE DOG.  She's also well known for her sweet hosting skills on such shows as G4's ATTACK OF THE SHOW, NBC's THE VOICE, and ABC's BATTLEBOTS.  Alison is a New Jersey native who has been acting since she was 12, singing since she was 3, and defending her home state since birth.  In her spare time, she writes music on her red piano and frequently changes her hair color. She also won the "Showcase Showdown" on THE PRICE IS RIGHT during the Bob Barker years and knows there’s a pretty good chance that nothing will get cooler than that.



Laura Ortiz is a Latin-American actress who's made her mark in the horror world as the star of VICTORY CROWLEY and with a performance in Wes Craven's THE HILLS HAVE EYES that was nominated for a Chainsaw Award. Her other big screen credits include GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXYNORBIT, and a lead role in CHILLERAMA. On television, Laura was a series regular on FearNet Channel’s HOLLISTON, a horror sitcom created by Adam Green, and guest starred on ABC’s HAPPY ENDINGS, Fox’s IN JUSTICE, and Showtime’s SLEEPER CELL. As a voice actor, Laura regularly works on Disney Channel animations FISHHOOKS and PICKLE AND PEANUT as well as Adult Swim’s ROBOT CHICKEN, and she voiced a character for HORTON HEARS A WHO! alongside Jim Carrey and Steve Carell. She presented at The Annie Awards with Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob. Laura also starred in the popular web series REAL HOUSEWIVES OF HORROR and THAT MOMENT WHEN. Fun fact: Laura is also an Urban Dictionary definition!



Rati Gupta is rare breed of Indian-American hip hop dancer turned comedy actor, writer and storyteller. She trained with some of Chicago’s most renowned choreographers and worked alongside musical artists LUPE FIASCO and FLO RIDA. As an actress, she is best know for her roles on Pamela Adlon's critically acclaimed BETTER THINGS on FX, the Seth Rogan-produced FUTURE MAN on Hulu, as well as the biggest comedy on network television: CBS's THE BIG BANG THEORY. She is also set to appear in Netflix's upcoming drama series UNBELIEVABLE starring Toni Collette. Rati also travels the country performing humorous retellings of her outlandish personal experiences, of which there are many. Too many. She is a 3-time champion of The Moth StorySLAM, and her debut one-chick storytelling show, Not Another Teen Solo Show, was named one of the Top 3 Performances of the New York International Fringe Festival by Backstage.
