17 years old. Introvert. Avid reader given to blunt honesty and sharp wit. Returning home from treatment for mental illness following a crisis event at her old school. About to start her senior year at her new school, Cable High.


Penny’s mom. 30-55 years old. Works as a digital marketer, which informs her approach as a concerned helicopter mom. A self-professed positive thinker and general perfectionist.


Melanie’s friend from work. Good-natured, kind, and supportive. Perhaps too supportive, at times. Slightly younger than Melanie. 25-35 years old.


Penny’s bubbly Twitter alter-ego @shiny_penny_1999, created by Melanie to help Penny connect with kids from her new school on Twitter while Penny was in treatment. Loves #horses and #cuteboys.


Twitter persona @iwantCANDY (Candace Abernathy, IRL). One of the girls at Penny’s new school. Potential #BFF to Shiny Penny after Melanie starts a budding Twitter friendship with @iwantCANDY on Twitter.


Much-less-bubbly twitter persona created by Penny in response to her mom’s twitter impersonation. Bent on Shiny Penny sabotage.

We seek a diverse cast and encourage actors of all ethnicities, cultures, gender identities, socioeconomic status and (dis)abilities to audition
