New York Casting Calls: Casting Featured Extras for Sitcom Sept 2nd

Gainfully Unemployed is a 30-minute comedy for our times- a cross between It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, How I Met Your Mother and the movie Bowfinger. The creative team has years of television experience producing content for such major networks as Discovery Health, MTV, LOGO, and Sundance Channel.

The show follows Parker, mid 20s, who gets laid off from his media job and finds himself in desperate straits. Being home during the day, he learns that a recently scandalized celebrity is hiding out in his apartment building (he was caught in a few *ahem* compromising positions with some stuffed animals). Along with his group of friends, he realizes that he can make a ton of money be selling photos, videos and stories about said celeb to a gossip blog.

We are casting for 3 featured extra roles (all speaking parts):

Security Guards (2): Muscular, Mid 20s-early 40’s males (any ethnicity) with a tough guy look and a no nonsense demeanor, although one has a “moment” with Parker as he’s escorting him from the building.

Super: Middle-aged Russian/Eastern European slumlord trying to rent a room to Parker’s gullible friend. Convincing accent a must.

This role may be expanded if the show goes to series.

For the pilot episode this is an unpaid gig, but you will receive lunch, credit and a copy of the program. If the show is picked up, further opportunities may present themselves.

Please send resume, head shot and reel to producer Caitlin Mae Burke, and also indicate your availability THIS Thursday, Sept 2nd or Friday, Sept. 3rd for an audition.

AUDITION DATE: THURS, SEPT 2ND 2010
