The sitcom has 8 main characters of which Rena is one. There will be separate castings in future for 5 of the 8 characters.
The sitcom is a dramatic-ish, sci-fi-ish comedy with the occasional Inner Dialogue Voice Over (IDVO) in order to reveal part of a character's inner life.
The Rena character has an IDVO in the first episode. The voice-over equivalent of a soliloquy.
The director on set/location will be Francisca Cabouco; a young director from Portugal with £2300 sony camera. She is listed on StarNow.
The actress to play Wilma has already been cast. It's London-based American actress Katherine Forbes who is listed on StarNow.
My (speaking now as Ben) own experience is in writing comedy and doing YouTube videos with personality typology professionals such as Katherine Fauvre (the creator of Tritype), Dr Victor Gulenko (the Ukrainian socionist), Dr Dario Nardi (who has been researching the EEG brain activity related to Jung-Keirsey personalty types). This experience I have applied to creating multi-dimensional characters.
