CASTING CALL FOR

“THE PARKER-ANDERSONS/AMELIA PARKER”

The Parker-Andersons/Amelia Parker demo by MarbleMedia & Beachwood Canyon Productions
Demo for family-comedy shows The Parker-Andersons/Amelia Parker

Synopsis: The Parker-Andersons is a family show. Actually, it’s two shows — It’s a family show, The
Parker-Andersons, and a tween show, Amelia Parker in one story world. The Parker-Andersons is a
modern take on The Brady Bunch. It’s about a widowed man, Tony Parker, and his two kids, Amelia and
Nathan, who move from England to the USA, so that Tony can manage the soccer career of his nephew, a
superstar striker for US soccer team. Whilst there, Tony marries Cleo Anderson, who has two kids of her
own, Victoria and Charlie. Thus the hyphenate — The Parker-Andersons. What follows are the adventures
of two very different sets of siblings and their parents, as they learn to live together, help each other, and be
a new family. Amelia Parker is a tween show about Tony’s daughter, Amelia. This show stars Amelia
and her friends and family, as she navigates her new life the US. Just as in Modern Family, the show uses
to-camera conversations to help us get to know Amelia better. It’s in these confessionals that we learn
about the internal machinations of a bright vivacious twelve year-old girl, as she struggles with a new
family, a new school, a new country, and being newly tween. So we have two single camera sit-coms. And
even though they’re both stand-alone shows that you can watch completely separately, they’re also related.
And they’re related by more than just the characters in the shows. We’ve taken a novel and unique
storytelling approach, where the two shows ‘talk’ to each other. It’s never been done before, but each
episode of The Parker-Andersons has storylines that we reprise in its companion episode of Amelia Parker ,
and vice versa. The Parker-Andersons focuses on the family, with stories mostly centered around the four
kids. And Amelia Parker is about Amelia and her relationship with her friends and family. This unique
format allows for a co-viewing audience.

Character Descriptions and Audition Packages


[VICTORIA ANDERSON] 15-17 years old. Female. Victoria Anderson is Cleo’s fifteen year-old daughter. But she’s fifteen going on forty. Although she is really beautiful, she hates being judged for her looks. She would rather be taken seriously for the super bright person she is. She’s hell bent on going to an Ivy League College, and she has a singular laser focus on getting there. Almost everything she does is to achieve that goal. She’s generally smarter than everyone else in the room, but is consistently chagrined by the fact that even stupid people (her step-brother, Nathan, particularly) seem to be doing better than her. It’s because Victoria is book smart, but still hasn’t lived much life. And it’s when those two things collide, we get to see Victoria figure out who she really is. LEAD.

[CHARLIE ANDERSON] 7-9 years old. Male. Charlie Anderson is Cleo’s son. He is seven and a bit of a wild child. He has undiagnosed ADHD, and as such needs reminding about staying on track. With a huge heart, very little impulse control, and not much of a sense of consequence, he blithely and happily trundles through life. Much to Cleo’s chagrin, her son is a lot like his father, Roger. Charlie is either going to grow up to be a stuntman, a racing car driver, or a convict. Whatever he ends up doing, he’s going to have fun doing it. LEAD.

[VIKRAM SANJIT] 12 years. Vikram Sanjit a tad dramatic, excessively hopeful, and Amelia’s best friend. He is loquacious and happily uses words like ‘loquacious’. He is the perfect vehicle to express Amelia’s point of view. They are so in sync, that Vikram can generally explain Amelia’s position or thoughts to anyone, without Amelia needing to say a word. He feels blessed to have a BFF like Amelia, and is loyal to a fault. If you upset him, he is apt to speed walk out of a situation for dramatic effect. Vikram is also amazed that Amelia is cousin to the very famous, Nick Parker. SUPPORTING.

[DECLAN] 12 years. Declan Heatherington. He is scathing, and honest to a fault. Declan has no capacity to delude himself, and takes pleasure in having everyone else see the world his way. Despite wishing he was Lord Voldemort’s kid, he still craves friendship and finds himself reluctantly hanging out with Amelia and Vikram. He would say it’s because Amelia’s mother, Cleo, owns a dental clinic with his mom. He is a misunderstood 12. year-old who wants desperately to be liked. SUPPORTING.
