    SYNOPSIS: The Parker-Andersons is a family show. Actually, it’s two shows — It’s a family show, The Parker-Andersons, and a tween show, Amelia Parker in one story world. The Parker-Andersons is a modern take on The Brady Bunch. It’s about a widowed man, Tony Parker, and his two kids, Amelia and Nathan, who move from England to the USA, so that Tony can manage the soccer career of his nephew, a superstar striker for US soccer team. Whilst there, Tony marries Cleo Anderson, who has two kids of her own, Victoria and Charlie. Thus the hyphenate — The Parker-Andersons. What follows are the adventures
    of two very different sets of siblings and their parents, as they learn to live together, help each other, and be a new family. Amelia Parker is a tween show about Tony’s daughter, Amelia. This show stars Amelia and her friends and family, as she navigates her new life the US. Just as in Modern Family, the show uses to-camera conversations to help us get to know Amelia better. It’s in these confessionals that we learn about the internal machinations of a bright vivacious twelve year-old girl, as she struggles with a new family, a new school, a new country, and being newly tween. So we have two single camera sit-coms. And even though they’re both stand-alone shows that you can watch completely separately, they’re also related.  And they’re related by more than just the characters in the shows. We’ve taken a novel and unique storytelling approach, where the two shows ‘talk’ to each other. It’s never been done before, but each episode of The Parker-Andersons has storylines that we reprise in its companion episode of Amelia Parker, and vice versa. The Parker-Andersons focuses on the family, with stories mostly centered around the four
    kids. And Amelia Parker is about Amelia and her relationship with her friends and family. This unique format allows for a co-viewing audience.

    CASTING/SEEKING:

    VICTORIA ANDERSON – LEAD ROLE – FEMALE – 15-17 YRS OLD
    Victoria Anderson is Cleo’s fifteen year-old daughter. But she’s fifteen going on forty. Although she is really beautiful, she hates being judged for her looks. She would rather be taken seriously for the super bright person she is. She’s hell bent on going to an Ivy League College, and she has a singular laser focus on getting there. Almost everything she does is to achieve that goal. She’s generally smarter than everyone else in the room, but is consistently chagrined by the fact that even stupid people (her step-brother, Nathan, particularly) seem to be doing better than her. It’s because Victoria is book smart, but still hasn’t lived much life. And it’s when those two things collide, we get to see Victoria figure out who she really is.

    CHARLIE ANDERSON – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 7-9 YRS OD
    Charlie Anderson is Cleo’s son. He is seven and a bit of a wild child. He has undiagnosed ADHD, and as such needs reminding about staying on track. With a huge heart, very little impulse control, and not much of a sense of consequence, he blithely and happily trundles through life. Much to Cleo’s chagrin, her son is a lot like his father, Roger. Charlie is either going to grow up to be a stuntman, a racing car driver, or a convict. Whatever he ends up doing, he’s going to have fun doing it.
