Synopsis: This is a television pilot for a dark comedic series based in Austin. The story follows Kory, a manager at a smoke shop who is stuck in life. He knows what he wants to do in life, but he doesn't know how to go about doing it. His love life is a mess, his work is unfulfilling, and he's about to be pushed to his limits. This is an unpaid production but there will be snacks, food and transportation as well as IMDB credit. Open to negotiate for deffered payment because I believe actors deserved to be paid as I am one myself!
LEAD: Sophia: 20-28 years old. A naturally beautiful girl who can leave a man breathless with little to no makeup. She just moved to Austin to get out of a bad relationship and to finish her psychology degree. She's kind, caring and funny and loves to unwind with smoking a bowl, but is lost in the real world just like Kory. (Open Ethnicity)
SUPPORTING: Disgruntled Customer: 25 years and up. A customer that returns to the store to return a product he believes is broken but he actually broke it. Causes a scene in the store and storms out. Only needed for a half day. Everyday normal looking guy. Glasses a plus. Open Ethnicity.
SUPPORTING: Police Officers: 25-50 years old. Confront out protagonist at the end of the pilot episode, will be used in the second episode. Have a cop like appearance or if you are a cop or military member, that's a huge plus! Open Ethnicity.
Extras: All ages, all ethnicites. Need extras for the scenes we will be shooting in public. Everyday normal clothes. Submit a selfie instead of headshot for extra roles. May get the chance for a line, depending on the scene.
