ABOUT

When 23 year old Walt Mendez (Dan Rosales) gets a survival job at a struggling low level NYC talent agency, his rage-aholic boss (Julie Halston) has a heart attack on the first day, leaving him alone, clueless and in charge. His shady ex-boyfriend conveniently resurfaces, coming on strong and making the job suddenly much more attractive. All heard through his headset at the office, “Rolling Calls” is a hilariously dark comedy in the vein of “Call My Agent” and “Hacks”- and makes the listener a fly on the wall as Walt tries to conquer show business…if it doesn’t kill him first. With an all-star cast including Julie Halston, Richard Kind, Matt Doyle, Wesley Taylor, Luis Miranda, Erin Davie, Brittney Mack, Andrea Macasaet, Orville Mendoza and more, this comedy will be your new aural addiction.
