Call For Auditions - Pilot For Series
A pilot for a new, Chicago-based anthology series, Chickweed Magik, is in pre-production!
Titled Wannabe, the debut episode tells the story of a quartet of Black cheerleaders, approaching high school graduation and adulthood. When their bus breaks down on the way to a competition, they sneak off into the woods and lose their way - only to encounter a mysterious girl, guarding a fountain she claims can grant immortality.
