Celebrated Webseries “The Residuals” to Launch
on BroadwayWorld for Second Season
Second Iteration of Acclaimed Webseries to Feature
Horatio Sanz, Michael Torpey and Jenna Leigh Green
June 16, 2015, New York, NY – The Residuals, a leading webseries about the complexities of commercial auditions, today announced the debut of their second season of the acclaimed webseries of the same name. Created by and starring husband-and-wife team Michael Paul Smith and Gillian Pensavalle, The Residuals is inspired by their experiences as actors auditioning for commercials in New York City. The series will air on BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre and live entertainment web site in the world, joining a number of exclusive and popular web series.
In The Residuals, 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 a short fuse, and James Tabeek as his loyal-to-a-fault assistant.
“We are really proud to be premiering the second season of The Residuals on BroadwayWorld,” said Robert Diamond, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of BroadwayWorld.com. “The level of talent and humor in this webseries is unmatched in the industry, and watching how our audience responded to season one, we couldn’t be more excited to join the team for season two of The Residuals.”
Because season one of The Residuals debuted to such resounding acclaim and popularity, accomplished actors Horatio Sanz (SNL, The Hooray Show podcast), Michael Torpey (Veep, Inside Amy Schumer), and Jenna Leigh Green (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Broadway’s “Wicked”) guest star in season two.
The rest of the cast of The Residuals has amassed numerous credits on TV, Film, Broadway, the Web and, of course, commercials. The second season includes actors J. Julian Christopher, Patrick Jones, Emily Tarver, Alisha B. Woods, Alison 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, Hallie 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.
