BREAKDOWN
JESSIE.
Woman. Mid 30s. Married to a North Shore native; recently relocated to Port (from Manhattan) to raise her family. Educated, articulate, lovely, warm. From the Midwest and has that Midwestern ready-smile. Beloved by every teacher she's ever had. Always gives the perfect toast; always organizes the group gift. But in private, Jessie bends towards anxiety. She doesn't like empty days on calendars, or being alone. Works 90 hour weeks in the city as a corporate lawyer - or did, until Allie was born. Now she's in yoga pants.

LINA.
Woman. Late 20s / Early 30s. From Long Beach (on South Shore of Long Island) and you can tell immediately - she is very South Shore. Acrylic nails, big hoops, velour track suits, Mets trucker hats - and a huge Italian family. Lina failed out of community college, curses too much and blasts Kanye too loudly in the car. But she is also fantastically winning. She's fun, funny and refreshingly genuine. Works at St. Francis Hospital.
MITCHELL.
Man. Late 30s / Early 40s or slightly older. Adrienne's husband, works in investment capital. A math nerd who is amazing with numbers, but not people. Serious, schrewd, sensitive. The kid who ate lunch in the library because he was so shy. Mitchell grew up in a tough house in a tough part of Utica and scholar-shipped his way to where he is now, so grades status, and success are his currency. But becoming a father has changed him. He makes goofy faces now. He stares out windows during meetings. His sentences end in question marks.

ADRIENNE.
Woman. Mid / Late 30s. Mitchell's wife. Elegant, powerful, aloof, and slightly rock n roll. Has eyes that are cat-like and assessing. The kind of woman you see climbing out of a dark sedan at JFK who you just know is going somewhere cool. Adrienne grew up on Central Park West, attended posh boarding schools, studied art abroad, and could give you the best-ever guided tour of MoMA. She has never signed an e-mail with an x or an o, but she is loyal and ferocious in both business and life. A successful jewelry designer. PART ALREADY CAST, AUDITIONS FOR REPLACEMENT AND UNDERSTUDIES ONLY.
