Gabriel "Cricket" Ramsey

(Gabriel Barreto)

Gabriel is a young, entitled filmmaker with a plan: make a documentary about his time working as a roadie for country music legend Buck Bonham and parlay that buzzworthy subject into his dream job: working for Saturday Night Live. Armed to the teeth with a camera crew and fancy attire, Gabriel faces his former employer only to be confronted with a wild past he chose to forget. Now the true City Boy must get back to the road life and make amends for the wildness he wrought.

bonham

(Lauren t. mack)

Though ten years Gabriel’s senior, Martha and he are kindred souls, having both grown up in the crazy musical life. She’s always there when you need her with a wily chestnut of advice, a tune to strum and get your mind off of your problems, and some herbal remedies to boot.

(Dave Shalansky)

Lily Ramsey’s brother and Gabriel’s uncle. While his sister was off living the musician’s road life , David worked his way up the ladder at NBC in the accounting department, where he became known as a mathematical hotshot. He appears briefly after an job interview he set up for his nephew at Saturday Night Live goes anything but smoothly.

 
 

junior
percy

(to be cast)

The happily-complacent and petulant heir to the Vegan Vittles fortune. Junior is in his early thirties and lacks all ambition other than to indulge in a life of extreme leisure. He does, however, follow his father’s every order, lest he lose any fraction of his comfort.

 

Marshal percy

(to be cast)

A former lawman who rescues animals from traffickers, most notably Jerry the Singing Koala. Marshal Percy utilized his public image of a protector of animals to open MARSHAL PERCY’S VEGAN VITTLES fast food chain. While in public he is a fierce advocate of a ‘cruelty-free’ lifestyle, Percy struggles with a hidden addiction that few know of and have lived to speak about. Fearing that Gabriel could expose him, Percy schemes to track down and silence the former roadie for good.
