Renee Zelweggers new show Cinnamon Girl was the subject of a bidding war between several TV stations. Created by Zellweger andAnthony Tambakis(Warrior), Cinnamon Girl will revolves around four girls as they come of age during the cultural revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s in Los Angeles. Zellweger and Tambakis will executive produce Cinnamon Girl with Gavin O’Connor. Zellweger and Tambakis co-wrote the story, with Tambakis writing the script, O’Connor set to direct the pilot and Danny Bramson serving as producer and music supervisor. The casting directors are now looking for several actors for numerous roles in Cinnamon Girl. This is a great opportunity for both union and non union actors that are looking for their big break.
The premise of Cinnamon Girl is a combination of Zellweger’s real-life journey from small-town Texas to Hollywood stardom and Tambakis’ lifelong fascination with the Laurel Canyon music scene and the New Hollywood, auteur-driven era that began in the late ’60s. MacDonald’s Cassie is a beautiful, coltish, wholesome, feisty and intelligent Indiana girl who, terrified of ending up like her mother, “married by 20 and stuck in Indiana for the rest of her life,” heads for California, determined to be part of all that’s changing in the world. Knapp’s Lola is a force of nature, a wild child, a beautiful actress who hails from a line of Hollywood royalty, also a bartender. Smith’s June is a perky and adorable high school girl living in Canoga Park, a die-hard Beatles’ fan with a particular fondness for Paul McCartney. Bartlett’s Lou is the lead singer for a club band, something of a mother figure to the young hippies and rock ‘n roll types crowding her Laurel Canyon home who takes newly arrived Cassie under her wing. Piggott will play Billy, a heartthrob and future superstar who has immediate chemistry with Cassie.
