Open Casting Call Details

STORY LINE: Recently suspended from college, directionless screw-up is forced to move back home with his single mom and take a job babysitting the next door neighbors – three of the most problematic kids on the planet. That’s just the beginning of his problems as his evening rapidly devolves into a cluster-you-know-what of massive proportions, with both the cops and a gang of irate drug dealers hot on his trail…

BLITHE: Female, 9 – 13. Blithe is a tornado of teenage drama. She’s sassy, moody, and obsessed with popularity. She watches too much TV and is like a walking, talking, Jerry Springer episode. But underneath that facade she is like any other young girl: seeking friends.

SLATER: Male, 12. Slater is a shy, awkward, polite kid, but he’s overcome with anxiety. His friends at school are beginning to think he’s being weird and lame but Slater has secrets he’s just beginning to share.

RODRIGO: Male, 9 – 11. Rodrigo is the adopted Latino sibling to Slater and Blithe. He despises suburban life and his cowardly siblings. What he lacks in suburban upbringing he makes up for in smarts and guile. A natural troublemaker but he gets away with everything, and does it all with a cool, dangerous grin.

It follows a college student, suspended for the semester and living back at home with his single mom, who has a night to remember when he gets talked into baby-sitting the eccentric kids next door - two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl.
