CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:

JARED – SERIES REGULAR ROLE – MALE – 17-25 YRS OLD – INDIGENOUS
He is 17 going on 30. Like any teenager, he struggles with friends, school, girls. But he’s also a parent to his parents. Jared is kind, considerate, and will help anyone who asks – or doesn’t ask. He yearns to express himself creatively but he’s too busy just trying to survive his increasingly tough situation. Jared’s daily life is addiction, poverty and violence. But it’s also laughter, friendship and fun. Jared is relatively uncorrupted by the chaos in his life. He sells and uses drugs but he doesn’t get into trouble. Jared’s too busy getting his parents out of trouble, mostly his mom, Maggie. Resilient and adaptable, Jared thinks he’s just trying to get by. But he doesn’t yet realize that, at his core, he’s a survivor – it’s in his DNA. [SERIES REGULAR – OPTION REQUIRED]

SARAH – SERIES REGULAR ROLE – FEMALE – 17-25 YRS OLD – INDIGENOUS
Is a foster child who moves in across the street from Jared. Sarah is a socially conscious activist, a natural-born rebel, and an unconventional fashionista. Sarah is convinced she’s going to find her birth parents one day and learn the truth – that she’s special. Jared takes an immediate liking to Sarah, but Maggie warns Jared to keep away from her. She’s trouble. And Maggie would know best because she knows that Sarah is also a magical Medicine Woman. Except Sarah doesn’t yet know it. So when Sarah learns the truth about herself, and Jared realizes he’s a Trickster, their infatuation for one another turns them into true star-crossed lovers.
