SPADE - CASTING

web series

Below you will find the scripts, production info and character breakdowns for the roles we are currently casting for. I plan on casting each episode individually and in series order, so if you've got your eye on a role for a later episode that is currently not advertised, please check back or keep an eye out on our social media pages for updates.

 

I am unable to reply to each application individually, so let me thank you now for taking the time to apply, and good luck with any current and future projects. 

Thanks! - Daniel
