Casting Call for Television Series “Outta the Fire” [Cleveland, OH] #casting

Posted March 9, 2017

PLOT SUMMARY: “Outta the Fire” tells the story of egotistical ex-celebrity chef Ryan Goldberg, as he looks for fame once more on the set of a deliciously unorthodox cooking show. But his ambitions are hindered by an apathetic film crew, an incompetent assistant (Dennis Heilman), and the evil machinations of the show’s producer (who goes only by Joe). With a solid recipe of carrot sticks, sexual harassment, bad food puns, and bitter sweet endings, he’ll be lucky to keep the show from literally burning to the ground. Welcome to “Outta the Fire”!

TYPE: Independent Film
CATEGORY: Television Series

LOCATION: Cleveland, OH

Bree Ono [female] {20-25]
—Supporting Character
If you’ve ever been to Coachella or the Social Justice Warrior side of Tumblr, you’ve probably seen Brie. She purports the ideologies of feminism, veganism, and equality, while simultaneously trying to control and demean those around her.
Scantily clad and promiscuous, she has the ability to tear apart the very fragile dynamics that keep Ryan, Joe, and Dennis from killing one another.

Cindi [female] {18-25}
—Supporting Character
Cindi is one of a couple of Production Assistant’s on this show. While she is a hard worker, willing to do whatever tasks are requested of her, her irritation grows as she is constantly overlooked by the other cast and crew. Even as her frustration grows, it is barely noticed, hidden behind her diminutive stature and soft voice.

Pepe [male] [25-40]
—Supporting Character
A flamboyant, alcoholic, Mexican makeup artist, with all the stereotypes that might come along with that. He remains an opponent of oppression (Ryan) and a defender of the weak (Dennis). With a flick of his scarf, he will either sass back with a harsh jab or lend a helping bottle of candy sweet alcohol.

Interviewer [female] [20-35]
—Supporting Character
With a background in improv comedy and a healthy amount of professionalism, she comes to interview the cast and crew of “Outta the Fire”. Upon realizing how awful they all are though [especially Ryan], she wants nothing more than to get out.
But little does she know, her hatred for them will bind her to the show in a way she never would have guessed.

Olivia [female] [25-40]
—Supporting Character
A beautiful woman that is the object of Ryan’s affections.
Always dressed to impress, she’s a woman who knows what she wants. With everything that she says, you can hear her intelligence, and every action is purposeful.
For her part, she serves as Ryan’s cooking assistant in an episode from his old show. But he treats her, not as he treats his cast and crew now, but as close to an equal as his ego will allow.

Deep Voiced Hype Man [male]
—Supporting Character
A disembodied voice that sometimes lends his talents to the cast and crew. He is a little too exuberant. When he gets reprimanded for Ryan for just that flaw, he has no issue with retaliating in the only way he can.
