CASTING Table Read for TV Pilot Pitch (to be taped)

Holiday Greetings Everyone :)

I am ramping up to do a staged reading (probably in January)
that will be recorded in audio and probably video
to use as part of my Pitch Package in LA for this show.

TILL THERE WAS YOU, is an 1hr Dramady:
already was a semi-finalist in SCRIPTAPALOOZA.
(Think NOISES OFF meets Larry Sanders...)

It has been well-liked by the producers I have already sent it to I am looking to make an alliance with. The studios are hungry

for content and timing is right now.

Current Intention:
Put it on audio and video as a pitch tool, because it is such a deep ensemble piece
and better heard/seen than just read I am finding!

Future Intention:
Sell it to be shot in the NWest.
( have a lot of industry contacts from my days on Northern Exposure, if they
could do it, so can we!)

Rehearsal -
1 Readthru - before we shoot. Probably on a weekend here in Lake Oswego.

Then, Table Read will probably be towards the end of January on a weekend.

I wish there could be pay for this.
HOWEVER! Actors chosen will be given a gift 1 Hour of my coaching time
($225 value) That ain't bad, now is it? ;) Still gives you value for your
valuable time and energy which I believe as actors we should all get. It can
be on crafting career goals, success, confidence in auditions, or mono/scene work.

Certainly will be great to have seen a stable of actors I like for the future potential.
(some of the key roles are already promised to actors I have worked
with in the past, some are still open) Everyone I like, I guarantee
I will remember.

Pics and Resume to:
JEM Enterprises P.O. Box 810, Lake Oswego, OR 97034
(yeaaaa, it's the old fashioned way, but better for casting for me!)

The Auditions will be reading from the script, no monologues.
(I just don't believe we do as well without another actor to re-act with!)

CAST Breakdown: (this is very much an Ensemble Cast)

AL, The Stage Manager: Late 40's something, harried, time never on his side, quick-witted

JOE: 40's something intimidating African American Actor, big build also good if you have it

DON DANDY: Late 40's early 50's, the Crab King (Southern Accent) charming, innocent, starstruck

JIMMY: The Intern, 20's or to look 20's, all enthusiasm and perk

HENRY: 50's, The Studio SUIT (smaller roll in pilot) will also read
THE ANNOUNCER: Think radio days and maaa mey mee mo mooo...

HUGH HARRINGTON: 40's, movie-star good looks, what America doesn't know- he is gay (tho not swish

ROBERT KENDALL: 40's Lawyer, kind, naive, soft-spoken, TALL

SCRIPT GIRL: Early 30's, Thin, nervous, Jewish, quirky

SOPHIE MAZZARINO: 40's sommmewhere, busty, boozy, bossy, ex-lounge singer

VIVIAN: Late 30s, British bombshell, leggy, ascending the ladder of stardom the leggy way

Narrator: (Man or Woman, Voiceover work preferred)
This will be the person reading the Stage Directions, this is a CRUCIAL part of the
reading and one of the most valuable things you can do for this project. The pace is fast and
furious, how it is read SO important.
