    STORYLINE: Convinced that her brother’s supposedly clairvoyant girlfriend is capitalizing on his grief following their grandfather’s death, Jess turns to a national television show for help getting him back in her life. But when we’re desperate to regain what we’ve lost, where do we draw the line between belief and logic?

    CASTING:

    JESS – LEAD ROLE – FEMALE – 22-30 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    14 SCENES
    Jess is a concerned older sister who only wants the best for her estranged younger brother. A somewhat emotionally stunted workaholic, she is not one for confrontation or displays of affection. She cares for her brother but just doesn’t know how to show it. Clean-cut, always professionally dressed.
    NOTE: Actor may be required to smoke HERBAL cigarettes.

    JAMIE – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 20-25 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    12 SCENES
    Jamie always looked up to his grandfather, so he lost his way, and sense of identity, after his passing. His clairvoyant girlfriend helps him connect to him from the other side, delaying his grief indefinitely. Jamie is lost in life, unable to move on or make any connections as meaningful as the one he shared with his grandfather. Perpetually on-edge, untrusting, wouldn’t be caught dead in a suit.
    NOTE: Actor may be required to smoke HERBAL cigarettes.

    FARRAH – PRINCIPAL ROLE – FEMALE – 20-25 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    7 SCENES
    Farrah is very sure of herself and her abilities. She believes she can speak to the dead and hopes to be discovered as the next celebrity medium. She loves Jamie and values their relationship above all else. Her over-confidence and endless optimism often comes across as delusion. Punctuated by a slight lack of self-awareness, whimsical but not overtly so, Stevie Nicks-esque.

    DR. AMY – PRINCIPAL ROLE – FEMALE – 35-45 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    4 SCENES
    Hardened by a long career, fame, and unimaginable loss. She views the troubled guests on her show as pawns to push a narrative on any given episode. She is a skilled wordsmith, a would-be cult leader, able to sway anyone with a good speech. Behind-the-scenes, she is a shell of the woman she was before her career began, viewing everyone as beneath her, isolated by her unique experience of life.

    PRODUCER – ACTOR ROLE – FEMALE – 30-40 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    2 SCENES
    Having learned a lesson or two in manipulation tactics from working on the Dr. Amy Show, the Producer knows just what to say to trigger an emotional response from a guest in the pre-show interviews. Like Dr. Amy, she views each guest as an opportunity for a televised meltdown and the ratings that follow.
