Children’s Show TV pilot

Location: Ohio

Type: TV Pilots

Casting for a TV pilot:
“Jesse’s Jukebox” – A series about a quirky teacher and his students taking imaginative adventures and learning about life.

Video Auditions- Kids would read from the script and song provided.

Erek (Male age 8-10) – Erek is a very bright child in the third grade. He loves to create. He writes and draws comic books about funny characters and situations. His favorite subject in school is science and he’s fascinated by how things work. He’s very factual, but certainly has a lot to learn.

Sebrina (Female age 9-11)- Sebrina is also a very bright child in the fourth grade, but reads at an 8th-grade reading level (she often brags about it). Sebrina is the more logical one of the group, which can cause her to get annoyed sometimes when the gang gets themselves in completely crazy situations.

This will shoot in NE OH for 2-3 days, in late June or early July. This will be a paid job.

Song:

THERE’S MUSIC EVERYWHERE
Written by Jesse Friedberg and Michael Seifert

There’s pots and pans and rubber bands
And even clapping with our hands.
tap a spoon or sweep a broom
or let some air out of a balloon

If you listen up you can hear the sound
From your own backyard
To the whole world round
There’s music here
There’s music there
It’s all around, it’s everywhere

There’s the melodies of the buzzing bees
And the birds all singing in the trees
There’s honking trucks and quacking duck
And all the kids singing on the yellow school bus

A hound dog’s howlin’ by the railroad
And a horse that’s trotting to a beat we know
There’s music here
There’s music there
It’s all around, it’s everywhere

Music’s everywhere we go
Just look all around you ( look all around you)
Everything makes a sound that can be small or grand
Use all these to start a super awesome band!

(spoken)
And then you can play some other instruments!

Like violins and mandolins
Piccolo flutes and accordions
Drums and bass from outer space
And guitars that will rock your face

So stomp your feet till there’s a hole in your shoe
We’re rocking kids with attitude
There’s music here
There’s music there
It’s all around, it’s everywhere

There’s music everywhere!
