EXCLUSIVE: The VPN Orders 'Audition' Spinoff Focusing On Aspiring Screenwriters
VSGUIDE is pleased to announce the commission of the network's first original spinoff series...
The VPN is producing SCREENWRITERS PARADISE, a spinoff of the network’s hit webisode dramedy series AUDITION. The project, from Hellbound and Tomb Raider co-creator/executive producer CHRIS DAVIS, will be introduced in an upcoming episode of "Audition", serving as a backdoor pilot. The network has ordered a total of twelve episodes for sequence one.
The webisode series stars Manish Dayal as ANDREW ZAHIR, an aspiring screenwriter who spends less time writing and more time getting into trouble with his best friend, and writing partner, JOSHUA LAWSON, a clever, rudely sarcastic thrill-seeker with a heart of gold, portrayed by Matt Cohen. Also starring Sharon Leal as EMILY MOORE, Romeo Miller as SHAWN LEONIDAS, Nick Jonas as TROY PARKER and Freida Pinto as FREYA MALEK.
Read the official synopsis below:
SCREENWRITERS PARADISE centers on the lives of long-time best friends, Andrew and Joshua, who have just moved into a small, but nifty apartment in the heart of Los Angeles, in hopes of jumpstarting their careers as screenwriters for film and television. Attempting to finish their first pilot script together, the duo must use their networking skills and charming personalities (or lack thereof) to get their foot in the door. Accidentally running into an agent, Emily Moore, and Shawn Leonidas, a former child star looking to reinvent himself, they might just have a chance at success... or you know, epic failure.
Davis is set to showrun, with "Audition" creator BRADY BROWN serving as executive producer. The series is set to launch on Thursday, JULY 23rd, 2015 - one week after the mid-season finale of Audition! So mark your calendars, and get ready for a whole new look into the film/television industry!
