Casting Call for Single Moms and Their Adult Sons for New Dating Show “Shark Bait”

Casting Single Mother/Son Duos for New Dating Series

Location: Nationwide

Type: Reality TV

CASTING SINGLE MOTHER/SON DUOS FOR NEW DATING SHOW
MAJOR NETWORK CASTING NATIONWIDE FOR SINGLE WOMEN IN THEIR 40’S AND 50’S AND THEIR SINGLE ADULT SONS 21+

Our mother/son duos will go on a fun dating retreat and help each other find their perfect match!

• Are you a single mom?
• Do you keep yourself fit AND fabulous?
• Does your 20 something year-old opinionated, single son want to help you find love too?

We are looking for attractive single people with larger than life personalities to take part in a fun dating experiment where we allow the mothers and sons to help dictate who the other person should date with some fun bonding opportunities in between! The show is meant to empower women and fight back against the idea of ageism and a woman’s desirability ending after a certain age while also tackling the age-old question “Does mother really know best” when it comes to who their son should date. It’ll be essentially two dating shows in one.

‘Jackie Crawford’ -Short Film Casting Neo-Noir Project

Location: Rochester, NY

Type: Film

CASTING CALL:
JACKIE CRAWFORD

SHOOTING DATES: October 23-25th, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Jeremy supplies his neighborhood with a unique type of service. For a stack of cash, he will steal any one item
from anyone’s house within the parameters of the development, no questions asked. Think hiring a hitman, but for petty theft. In this
neighborhood, everybody steals from everybody.

ROLES NEEDED:

*JEREMY (20s) : just your neighborhood petty thief for hire. Jeremy makes a living by receiving custom “orders” from clients via
burner phones. It’s a life of cheap thrills and quick bucks, but is it the life he always wanted?

*JACKIE (20s) : Jackie is an unhappy individual. She lived her whole life by the books, but when she met her future husband, Magnus,
their relationship opened up a thrill ride type of lifestyle she never knew existed. This lifestyle came at a price however: their fights began to be
numerous, and the abuse and adultery on Magnus’s behalf even more so. Jackie gave up her future, and for what?

*MAGNUS (30s): Magnus is a stockbroker. Probably corrupt in his practices, he does have the benefit to live in a nice suburbia with
his beautiful and dutiful wife, Jackie. Magnus met Jackie when he was guest lecturing a business course at her university, and married soon
thereafter. Magnus likes to keep her around, but some days her simple charms aren’t enough to satisfy, and he seeks the aid of…outside sources, to
get the job done. Magnus plans to move to the city come fall, where his nightly exploits will be in much closer proximity to himself.

TOM (20s): A neighbor of Jackie and Magnus. Avid fan of classic rock. He never seeks out use of the local theft service, but when things
of his go missing, he has ideas of who might be the culprit.

MARY (20s): is just your typical white suburban neighbor on the block. She may come across as posh and polite, but she takes great
pleasure in the bewilderment of others.

EXTRAS: Woman with dark hair (20s), Neighbors for a going away party (20s-30s)

Payment: Non Paid

Auditions in Rochester New York for Lead Roles in Short Film

Casting Principal Roles In Edgy Rom-com Short

Location: Rochester, NY

Type: Film

T.M.I Short Film Casting Call
Chloe B. Goolsby: Writer/ Director

Shooting Dates/ Location: Must be available to shoot multiple days in October, in the Rochester/ Henrietta area. Must be available for in person or virtual rehearsals in October.

Food and transportation will be provided, as well as room and board if you are traveling from out of town. .

Principal:

LACEY (48):Quick-witted, flirtatious, charismatic. Former life of the party, turned life of the AA meeting. An optimist who is too clever for her own good. Her high intelligence is often underestimated due to her somewhat provocative outfits and her love of all things pink and girly. A well educated, staunch second wave feminist, who wants nothing more
than male approval.
FRED (45):Lonely, pessimistic, curmudgeon. His age has finally matches his grumpy and cynical disposition. Never married, no kids, and proud of it. He can barely admit that he does, in fact, crave human connection.
DAVE (33):Boyish, washed-up, jock. A perpetual man child who has only just begun the long process of maturation into functional adult. Enthusiasm and a positive outlook make up for his lack of nuance and stunted development. The sort of person you root for.
JOSHUA (50): Detached, manipulative, selfish. These traits have also made him highly organized, determined, successful. Has learned to never take no for an answer; something that has served him well in his career. He usually gets what he wants, because he can convince people to give it to him. He considers himself ‘above average’. He is not good at handling disappointment.
Supporting:

MARYLIN(49):Pragmatic, boisterous, superficial. Lacey’s best friend of over thirty years. She is not as well educated or nearly as clever, but her common sense and ‘nuts and bolts’ way of thinking is something Lacey sorely lacks.
DARREN(51):Loud, blunt, obstreperous. Lacey’s ex-husband, now her handyman and close confidant. Fancies himself a pragmatic and detached thinker, but in reality is far too emotional. He cares deeply for Lacey, but thinks she’s hopeless when it comes to men.
THERAPIST(41): Warm, soft spoken, clinical. Has a highly curated bed-side manner. Professional and appropriate to a fault.
STEPH(23):Stoic, dry, sarcastic. Lacey’s daughter couldn’t be any less like her mother. A life long tomboy, she learned early on not to put much stock in the opinions of men. Despite the two’s many differences, the two get along very well.
WAITRESS(20): Cute, upbeat, and personable.
EASY (39):Loose, low self esteem, working class. Aged beyond her years, the evidence of a difficult life is carved into her face. Believes a relationship with a man will provide her with some sense of structure or purpose.

Payment: Other
