Created by and starring Smith and Pensavalle, "The Residuals" is inspired by their experiences as actors auditioning for commercials in New York City. Each Season One episode (with a running time of about seven minutes) gives viewers a hilarious inside view at the bizarre world of auditions, callbacks, costume fittings and commercial shoots.
Smith stars as aspiring actor Pete Hamilton, with Pensavalle cast as a softhearted casting associate named Valerie. 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 anger management issues, and James Tabeek (Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, Taboo) as his loyal-to-a-fault assistant.
The cast of "The Residuals" has amassed numerous credits on TV, Broadway, the Web and, of course, commercials. Featured in Season One are: Patrick Jones, Emily Tarver, Alisha B. Woods, Allison Levering Wong, Benjamin Hey, Mike O'Gorman, Missy O'Reilly, Cathryn Mudon, Kathy Searle, Rocco Chierichella, Jeremy Redleaf, Dave Hanson, Ted O'Gorman, David Crownson, Adam Mace, Joel Walker, Carrie-Rachel Dean and Desiree Care.
