CAST BREAKDOWN :

Ernesto Rodriguez: mid 30s, Mexican-American from Chicago

Business owner / Mechanic

Sensitive, family man. A reluctant leader whose misguided anger and ambition ultimately cloud his judgment. Ernesto is the owner of Rodriguez & Sons, auto-body shop located on the South Side of Chicago, founded by his father. **(Must be comfortable reading / speaking Spanish)**

____
Lorena Rodriguez: mid 30s, Mexican-American from Chicago

Business owner / Office manager

Fun-loving wife and mother. A voice of reason even when nobody’s listening. Lorena helps her husband, Ernesto, run the family business. She’s a leader within her own right. She is loving, supportive and level headed.

____
Dennis: late 30s, Mexican-American from Chicago

Mechanic

Humorous blue-collar teddy bear. Dennis is the kind of guy you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley … and then he hugs you. Ernesto and Dennis grew up together as close family friends and although Ernesto is technically “the boss” at Rodriguez & Sons, Ernesto respects Dennis like an older brother”. **(Must be comfortable reading / speaking Spanish)**

____
Helene: early 30s, African-American from Chicago

Law Student (on hiatus) / Part-Time Cleaner at Rodriguez & Sons

Sharp and witty. Helene is an activist without a cause who’s looking for a chance to make a difference in the world. She’s an employee of Rodriguez & Sons and a close friend of Ernesto. She’s resourceful and ambitious and she loves as hard as she loses.

_____
Seth: late 20s, White-American from Chicago

Campaign Organizer

Awkward and ambitious. Seth would like to be more important than he is. He has good intentions, although his actions don't always reflect that. Seth is looking for a win, by any means necessary.

______
Mitch: early 40s, White-American from Illinois

Co-Host of “The Right Guys” a very local conservative news talk show

If Rush Limbaugh had a Midwest protégée, Mitch would be it. He’s one-half of the “The Right Guys” who run a talk show based in Illinois where they give their very biased take on all things politics and immigration. Of the two hosts, Mitch is the ring leader, who’s not afraid to say what’s on his mind, for better or worse - but usually worse.

**Characters will NOT use racial slurs**

____
Jerry: late 30s, White-American from Illinois

Co-Host of “The Right Guys” a very local conservative news talk show

Jerry is the ying to Mitch’s yang, following suit with whatever shenanigans Mitch proposes. Eager, comical and unafraid of censorship, Jerry is quite happily along for the ride.
