From the kickstarter -
From writer/comedian, Ben Paddon (PortsCenter, Boomer's Day Off), writer/actress, Mac Beauvais (Hit Girl, The Gloaming), and featuring director Justin Zagri (Severus Snape and the Marauders) comes a comedy of horrors about just how truly monstrous Hollywood can be.
Hollywood! Land of dreams, of opportunity and of...okay, we all know that’s BS.
This comedy follows a trio of actors who are getting regular paying work, but who feel trapped by the roles they keep getting cast in. Actors stuck in an endless parade of sci-fi shlock and horror films. And I guess maybe we should mention that they’re actually monsters.
Not actors in makeup, not computer-generated trickery, but real monsters. Like, for real real...this is Typecast.
We decided to take the struggling/disenfranchised actor trope and turn it on its head by imagining a world where all the creepy crawlies you’ve ever seen on the screen were played by actual monsters. If you need the elevator pitch (that’s Hollywood-speak for please compare your stuff to other people’s stuff), it’s a bit of Being Human meets Extras. And who wouldn’t enjoy a comedic story about monsters working in the industry but dreaming of something more?
