Global African web-based drama
Date: 2009-08-19, 12:25AM EDTReply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]
We are casting actors for roles in an original pan African ensemble drama set in Harlem. Imagined as a cross between No1 Ladies Detective Agency and Soul Food, the series will be released as a web-based show and will eventually transition to TV. Uncommon, well-conceived and written, this project will be fun for all involved. If you think you’ll be a good fit for any of the roles described briefly below and are willing to work for minimal upfront compensation, please email headshot, resume or bio, and links to online reels. The pilot will be shot in late October. Episodes 2 through 8 will be shot soon after that. (any pickups and re-shoots will be shot at a date TBD) The web series is a lead-up to a TV series to be shot in 2010. The web series will have eight episodes in total with each about eight to twelve minutes in length.
