Said Adilah about working on this cable series, "What a wonderful outfit to work for! All the way from a great producer's session (audition) to the table read with producers, actors and production team to allow everyone to hear the script out loud, to the wardrobe fitting where the designer, Greg LaVoi  gifted me with a matted poster of the lovely green velvet gown he designed for my character Keela in Land of the Lost  in 1992 (that he got an EMMY nomination for) to FINALLY a magical shoot on set atRaleigh Studios.

The returning director, Steve Robin, gave me his heartfelt thanks with a HUGE hug after we wrapped and lead actor Mary McDonnell said, 'I hope we get to work together again. Come back!!!' I said, 'Invite me back!' so send those letters in, folks... I was humbled by such an amazing experience!"

CHECK OUT 'THE M WORD' WITH ADILAH BY INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER HENRY JAGLOM 

In this socially-conscious independent film, "The M Word" by cutting edge producer/director Henry Jaglom, Adilah portrays an office worker named "Barbara" in this movie that stars Tanna Frederick,Michael Imperioli and Corey Feldman. In Jaglom's improvisational style that he has come to be known for, this film takes a look at the effects of menopause on both women and men.

In terms of the storyline, when hotshot New York TV exec Charlie Moon (Corey Feldman) is brought in to assess a struggling local station, children's show host Moxie Landon (Tanna Frederick) pitches him a documentary about menopause featuring her mother.

Say critics:
"...'The M Word' has verve - and for certain viewers, it may strike a nerve." - New York Daily News

"The filmmaker (Henry Jaglom) once again exploits his feminine side with his latest femme-targeted opus." - The Hollywood Reporter

"As he did in "EATING," "GOING SHOPPING," "BABYFEVER" and "IRENE IN TIME," Writer-Director Henry Jaglom gives us a bracingly funny, fearless and fast-paced human comedy about yet another vital issue facing all women at a certain critical turning point in their lives." - Rotten Tomatoes
