In this BroadwayWorld Exclusive, we get a peek behind the scenes of the hit webseries THE RESIDUALS. Based on the video below, it looks like the cast and crew of this comedy had even more fun making the show than we have had watching it.

The season finale will air on Tuesday, May 13 on and here on BroadwayWorld. After you watch the outtakes, catch up with THE RESIDUALS' creators Michael Paul Smith and Gillian Pensavalle in their recent BWW articles. First, Mike gives his hilarious 10-Tips to Commercial Auditioning, then the real-life husband and wife share their do's and don'ts for collaborating without killing your partner, and finally read BWW's recent conversation with Mike and Gillian.

You can find out more and see the show at, like the show on Facebook at, and follow the show on Twitter @theresiduals. Follow Mike and Gillian on Twitter @MPSmithnyc and @GillianwithG respectively.

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.

"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.
