Actors for Student Web Series - Pilot Episode, Dramedy!
The point of making this is to bring the characters to life and be able to show the potential, perhaps commission it or to use it to get funding and to be able to shoot it in a higher quality standard (using the footage we film for crowdfunding).
It's a collaborative thing. To do it for the love of making things.
The project mainly focuses on a girl (Olivia) who's a very normal young professional in London trying to hustle in her internship to get that dream full-time job, her housing situation doesn't make things easy though.... she is a tenant in a family home that's basically completely non-ordinary, the mum, Sophie is a liberal free-spirit, the three kids (a teenager, Zoe - drug dealer, Lucas and Street-wise cute Neil) and the annoying, annoying manipulative new-boyfriend Jeff who won't stop until he's got Sophie all to himself.
PLEASE SEND A MESSAGE STATING WHAT CHARACTER YOU'D LIKE TO APPLY FOR AND WHY!! (DOESNT NEED TO BE FORMAL, BUT I AM DEFINITELY LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WANT TO BE THE CHARACTERS)
Please note: Olivia is latina / spanish/ speaks another language. (this can be shaped around the actresses origins and language) Olivia has an accent

Olivia is 22, she's a hustler and a dreamer, she thinks to know what she wants but in reality, doesn't really know a thing. (like most of us at our 20s) She lives in London, she's got her internship, but it pays basically nothing... she's got no other choice than to adapt and live with a crazy family bc it's cheap and convenient. At work....she works in an app company, they're currently working on an app for cheating.

Rudy is a bit of a mean person. Let's be honest, he's the founder of an app made for cheating. He's married but in love with his co-worker. He's a very serious wanna-be professional guy, a total hipster and bit of a geek, he's a romantic at heart. Rudy loves what he does and strives to have the best team and nothing will stop his ambitions.

Zoe is 15 and a total badass. Think of her like a mini-Fiona from Shameless. She will do anything for her family but after all, she's still a kid. She will get into fights, need guidance and will eventually build a strong relationship with Olivia. She's surrounded by brothers meaning she actually has no interest in dating guys... until he'll find the one...Zoe is temperamental, a fighter has a very good heart.

Lucas is a badass. He's a good boy with bad guys habits. He can seem like the sweetest but can be the meanest. It's an in between. He's a softie when it comes to family and people he cares about but he'll do whatever to get his way through things. Things he's good at? selling weed, work in the adult industry. that's his easy cash. He'll definitely find what he's good at though.

Neil is clever and cheeky. He's seen too much Magic Mike and now he's obsessed he wants to be a exotic dancer (of course he won't be). He's great at sales and blackmailing his teacher Greg. He knows what goes on around the house and tends to find out about things first, always. He's a very bright kid, bright future.

Lisa is a Parisian living in London. She's the social media manager of the app company. She's really good at what she does and all things social. She's a tiger in bed and loves men. She's a "liberated" woman, after her long-term oppressive relationship she decided she wanted to be ultimately single and enjoy the finest things in life, wine, sex and good tv. She's Olivia's closest friend. She's got a thing with Rudy. A feminist at heart.

Sophie is a free-spirited ex-dancing teacher who gets too caught up in messy and toxic relationships.... she's a great mum at times and at others she completely forgets she's one.

Big P has tattoos, buzzcut, he's a veryyyy attractive man, people might think he's up to no good but actually, he's just trying to be a good person, do good things. He left his family home a few months ago because he didn't want to be involved in the mess and dysfunctionality of his family. Now he's kinda forced to come back. He works at Tesco. He recently got offered a job to be a stripper at an up and coming venue and he might just consider doing so.
