SYNOPSIS:

A group of television writers try so hard to be politically correct that it impedes their process.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

[NAOMI] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-25]
Naomi is what you would expect from a Millennial: enthusiastic, quirky, and a little too green. By far the youngest in the writer’s room, Naomi is a classic hipster in the professional world.

[WHITE TYSON] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-35]
White Tyson is a white, of course. He’s still wearing the too casual cargo shorts/ t shirt combo even though it became inappropriate years ago. He’s a little out of touch though this doesn’t stop him from expressing his every thought.

[MIKE] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-40]
Mike is by far the most jaded writer in the group. A Latino man between 25 and 40, he is concerned about what other people think of him and the show.

[HAN] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Han is a handsome writer who treats his coworkers with kindness, even if they don’t always reciprocate. Searching for an Asian American man to fill the role.

[JERI] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Jeri is a shy and quiet writer, though not uninvolved. She stays away from confrontation as long as she can but quickly finds her (surprisingly loud) voice before the story is finished. Searching for an African American woman to fill the role.

[SHIRA] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-35]
Shira is booming with presence. She is the epitome of a strong career woman. She is gorgeous and fierce. She holds nothing back and believes herself to be current with the political issues discussed in the short, but finds herself arguing in circles with people who say otherwise. Searching for a non-white woman to fill the role.
