CASTING FOR IN MY BLOOD
Genre: Teen, Drama, Thriller
Logline: The Robert’s Family is far from perfect. A envious outsider wants to make sure everyone knows it. Meet the Roberts siblings; Courtney, the beautiful, but cruel cheerleader. Kacey, the cynical writer who feels like an outcast in his family. Paisley, the bland ballerina who is liked by everybody. Watch them navigate life as an anonymous stalker starts to reveal their secrets, and see their seemingly perfect image shatter.
We will be filming the pilot episode as a sort of proof of concept to earn more funding and support for the 8 episode series. If you get a role, and would like to reprise it for when we film again, please let us know. This is a personal project that me and my siblings have written and will be directing/producing/acting in. It would mean so much to have people invested in our projecting by fulfilling these roles.
