“Motor City Living” Casting for Comedy Web Series

Builders of Promise Casting Call

The Builders of Promise organization is installing a new comedy web series and looking for talented actors to fill the roles. Filming is scheduled for Monday, December 17, 2012 – Friday, December 21, 2012 in the Detroit, MI area.


Anthony gives up Harvard University and moves to Detroit, Michigan to be with his girlfriend Gerren of just six months. Not only does adjusting to the new city prove difficult for Anthony, but trying to make his relationship work with Gerren proves difficult as well.

Available Roles:

  • ANTHONY: Any race, early to mid 20s, a sarcastic, intelligent, and conservative college grad who’s all about tradition. He tries his best to uphold religious views, and he likes to debate, even when he’s wrong. He’s an aspiring politician.
  • GERREN: African American, early to mid 20s, gorgeous, affable and loves having a good time, but knows when to be serious. She is a teacher and Anthony’s girlfriend.
  • MARCO: Any race, early to mid 20s, a sloppy, disorganized party animal who comes from a very wealthy family, a family that protests him living in Detroit, but he wants to be independent. He’s a graduate student at Wayne State University.
  • TINA: Hispanic or African American, early to mid 20s, a free-spirited and very liberal girl who speaks her mind, no matter how harsh it is. She is independent and working on her undergrad degree still… it’s her seventh year.


These are not paid roles.

How to Apply:

Videotape your audition video of a monologue of choice (preferably comedic). Limit 1-­2 minutes. (The video does NOT have to be fancy. For example, an audition filmed on an iPhone is perfectly fine. As long as we can see your face!) Please send your headshot/resume AND your audition video to: cityliving@buildersofpromise.org

NOTE: If your audition video is too large to email, you can post them unlisted or privately on YouTube and send us the link! If you don’t necessarily fit the age/race of the characters above, please send us your headshot/resume anyway! We have supporting roles that will be featured in the episodes.
