This dark comedy TV pilot gives a window into the lives of film and television "extras" struggling to get ahead in the entertainment industry.
Kyle Krabb is an enthusiastic goofball from the midwest with dreams of hitting it big in Hollywood. A newcomer to Georgia’s entertainment industry, he lands a gig as an extra on the TV Series Totally Sarah. There he meets the disenfranchised Roland Krane, a long-time extra who has been stuck in the cycle of bad food and low pay (typical of extra work) for years. Falling in with Roland’s dissimilar group of misfit extras - or “the gang” - Kyle learns the ropes of surviving life in the background.
Co-created and directed by Ryan Monolopolus & Edward Reid. Produced by Michael Kam, Nina Marinov, Jeremy Cournyea and Carlos Velasco. Director of Photography Josh Saideman. Original music by Siete.
