There’s a spoof soap opera that
was secretly filmed inside an IKEA in
Burbank, CA. Every episode of the
‘IKEA Heights’ web series was filmed
entirely within the store and was
unauthorized by the management. SourceSource 2Source 3
I am an aspiring screenwriter in NY working on my first web series “The Young, Black, & Gifted” which is a sci-fi/fantasy series about a group of young Black people with superpowers who decide to form a coalition to combat police brutality.
I am in the casting process for the pilot episode right now and I am receiving great submissions for every role except the role of a young Black transgirl that I wrote. I keep having cis women apply for this role and I will not cast a cis person for this role. I am really trying to create good representation for all Black folks through this series, and I really don’t want to rewrite this character as cis because I cannot find a Black transgirl to play the role.
So please reblog this to share, and if you know any young Black transgirls who are non-union actresses in New York looking for work to add to their reel please inbox me for contact info and audition dates.
Rehearsals would begin in mid February and production begins late February through March.
