The Residuals

The Residuals Michael Paul Smith stars as aspiring actor Pete Hamilton, with Gillian Pensavalle cast as a softhearted casting associate named Valerie. Luke Kelly Clyne of Splitsider calls it "A fantastic series" and "Irresistably sharable." Media guru Paul Levinson says, "The acting is outstanding," with the cast displaying "impressive comedic talent."

The principal cast also includes Nick Costa as Pete's character-actor roommate, Kelly Warne as a high-strung actress who is self-conscious about her age, Mark Gessner as a powerful casting director with a short fuse, and James Tabeek as his loyal-to-a-fault assistant.

"THE RESIDUALS' is a comedy about surviving an environment of commercial actors who try way too hard to mask their nervousness with cockiness," says Smith, who wrote and directed the entire series. "When you put those personalities in the position of having to read a single pitch line as though it were Shakespeare, you have a very funny blend of reality and absurdity."

The cast of THE RESIDUALS has amassed numerous credits on TV, Film, Broadway, the Web and, of course, commercials. Featured in Season Two are: Horatio Sanz, Jenna Leigh Green, Michael Torpey, J. Julian Christopher,Patrick Jones, Emily Tarver, Alisha B. Woods, Allison Levering Wong, Benjamin Hey, Kathy Searle, Rocco Chierichella, Jeremy Redleaf, Dave Hanson, Ted O'Gorman, Tom Brown, Ian Sullivan, Brian Rhinehart, Kyle Hunt,Deborah Rayne, Haille Clarke, El Hay Revivo, and Carrie-Rachel Dean.

THE RESIDUALS is produced by Smith and Pensavalle through Take It Back Productions, and edited by Pensavalle. The director of photography is Emmy Award-winner Ed Caraballo. Script supervisor is Carrie-Rachel Dean. All episodes feature contemporary music from Rhymesayers Entertainment and Smalls Live.

It occurred to me recently that when Gillian and I talk about 'The Residuals', we naturally focus on the aspects of the process that we're most excited about. This is, I'm sure, as it should be. But if you're working on something and you find yourself mired in a valley rather than a peak, I don't want you to feel discouraged. That kind of stuff happens to us aplenty. Here's a recent example.

In October, BroadwayWorld's webseries partner THE RESIDUALS completed a successful $20,000 KickStarter campaign to help fund their second season. Soon after, husband and wife co-creators Michael Paul Smith and Gillian Pensavalle began shooting Season Two; which will guest star SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's Horatio Sanz and WICKED and SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH's Jenna Leigh Green. Currently, Pensavalle, who serves as the series' editor, is neck deep in footage, but she took some time earlier this week to update the show's supporters:
