HOLMES’ SWEET HOME: A divorced couple raising their children with their new spouses all under one roof hilariously navigate their way through the day-to-day of a blended family.

DEADLINE for submissions: 9/29/18.

Lead Roles:
Tony Holmes – African American, late 30s, architect. Tall & athletically fit. Immaculately dressed/groomed with a no-nonsense attitude. Relishes in being the breadwinner and alpha male. Annoyingly financially frugal. Serves back-handed, straight to the point jokes/comments.

Monica Ross – African American, late 30s, nurse. Average height/build. A control freak and Tony’s ex-wife. Strong-willed, outspoken, and quick-witted. She regulates the house and always has to have the last word.

Tiffany Holmes – African American, late 30s, fitness instructor. Average height and fit. Tony’s new wife. Private school/Ivy League educated, out of touch, and bougie. She’s an avid health nut with a carefree personality and love for positive energy and inner balance.

Mitchell “Mitch” Ross – African American, late 30s, physician’s assistant. Tall, slender build. Monica’s easy-going and goofball husband. His playful big kid persona vibes perfectly well within the pediatric hospital where he works.

Supporting Roles:
Renee Holmes – African American, 13/14. Tony and Monica’s laidback and trendy daughter. Typical teenager who would rather be absorbed in her social media status and friends than hang out with her family.

Kory Holmes – African American, 5. Tony and Monica’s spunky and very smart daughter.

Jackson “JoJo” Holmes – African American, 60s, retired military. Average height and build. Tony’s father and self-proclaimed ladies’ man. Overly smooth one-liners and dated wardrobe. Never misses an opportunity to remind everyone he is still sexy.

Faye Robinson – African American, 60s, retired teacher. Average height and build. Monica’s sassy and stylish mother. God-fearing with traditional southern values.

Ms. Dawson – Caucasian or racially ambiguous, 30-40s. Tall/statuesque. Kory’s very liberal teacher. Giddy with a very bubbly personality.
