wanted: dreamy dramatic artists of all types

Hey gang,

We’re meeting to talk about the next incarnation of Sticky​ soon. We’re going through past programs and seeing all these dreamy actors and directors and thinking, did everyone move to LA? When have we even seen any of these people? It’s been about a million years (by which I mean at least since April). So people, are you around? Do you want to be in Sticky? Do you want to recommend others? Send emails with contact info, links, headshots, reels, whatever, to stickyseries [at] gmail [dot] com. There may be a call for script submissions, but this isn’t that yet.

We love you.
