PILOT EPISODE Promised: Deliverance

When: Zoom/in person auditions scheduled on a person-to-person basis!

What it is: I am assembling a team to film and produce a pilot episode for a TV show based on a book I wrote about the Book of Mormon. (Think: The Chosen but for Book of Mormon) This is obviously a low-budget project so filming will take place in Utah. If the show is picked up by a production company, we would like to secure the same roles in the official show for actors who have helped us with the pilot.

About the show: Take a check at our website www.promisedtvseries.com for a full idea. A few key points:

  • this story takes place in late 500’s BC in Jerusalem
  • The whole first season explores the “bible” story of the beginning of the Book of Mormon. This includes mention of Daniel, a big role for Jeremiah, and historical narratives about Babylon, Egypt, and the kings of Judah at the time.
  • I would call this a “historical drama”, based in fact – kind of like The Work and the Glory or Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites (without the time travel 😉
  • Take a look on the site for a full synopsis of the pilot.
  • The main purpose of the show is to inspire faith and courage in hard times. I also want to bring scripture characters to life and put the viewer into the shoes of characters they’ve read about but haven’t fully considered.

What you need: Send me a headshot and a resume if you have one!

If you are interested in auditioning, I will send you a portion of the script to read over.

Characters: https://www.promisedtvseries.com/casting (This page has character images I selected back when I was writing the book, just for an idea of what I was picturing. Obviously, the characters are open to interpretation so don’t hesitate to audition regardless!)
