The “Eight Ball” series depicts the lives of teenage boys sent to live in a group home with an alcoholic coordinator and is run by her two adult children who have their own shortcomings and issues. The pilot episode follows Raymond Reid whose best friend, Royal, hides him away after he’s accused of committing a crime she’s certain is out of his character.
This pilot will film in late July/early August of 2021.
We’re casting for the following roles:
RAYMOND REID II – (African American male; 15-25 years old) 16-year-old high school student and champion wrestler. Loves his family, but is easily misjudged by his tough exterior.
ROYAL STRICKLAND – (African American female; 15-25 years old) Fast-talking, sassy 16-year-old best friend of Raymond; incredibly intelligent with an artistic flair.
SIERRA TRUMAN – (African American female; 25-40 years old) Sweet, spiritual, soft-spoken daughter of Margot Truman. Not a good judge of character.
