OPEN CALL FOR CBBC SADIE JONES
CBBC ARE LOOKING FOR HUGE NEW TALENT FOR A NEW SITCOM
WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING:
AGED 11 - 14
THE SHOW IS ABOUT THIS CHARACTER SO SHE NEEDS TO HAVE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL!! BAGS OF CONFIDENCE & CHARM!
Sadie isn't your average pink obsessed, bubble brained girly girl. And neither does she want to be. But with her teens fast approaching she's made a conscious decision to express her feminine side, even if she often ends up being, well, a bit rubbish at it. Bright as a button, quick-witted and fiery tempered, Girls will want to be her (or be friends with her), whilst the guys will find her funny and smart.
Sadie is a rebel with a cause. Determined to express her individuality against the odds, she's unafraid to take the initiative and go for what she wants.
Aged 11 - 14
DeDe is the real tomboy of the bunch. That's not to say DeDe's your run of the mill, stereotypical footie playing tomboy. DeDe's passion is science (she wants to be an astronaut when she grows up) and so the whole dolls and dresses thing passed her by – she wanted a Biochemistry Set instead of a Barbie. Hardly a surprise then that the two “boyish” girls became best buds. But whilst Sadie has embraced becoming a Lady, DeDe is doing everything she can to avoid it.
But that's the charm of this character. She gets 99% of all pop cultural references wrong, she consistently dresses like Dora the Explorer at a knitting convention and she knows exactly when Sadie and Kit are doing something wrong. Yet she loves them and their company and she's desperately trying to allow herself and her mates to learn from their mistakes. In an age of ultra savvy, switched-on kids, achingly virtuous DeDe is a breath of fresh air
Aged 12 - 14
Comic Hook: Flamboyant Drama Queen
Every show needs a 'Showman' and Kit certainly doesn't disappoint! From jazz hands to tap shoes, a dazzling smile to a dashing BEBO profile – Kit's got the lot. Sort of. And what he lacks, he makes up for in sheer, unbridled self belief. He’s desperate to 'make it', whatever 'making it' means. Kit's made a bee line for the creative arts as he is convinced this is the only environment in which he can be himself. Though his acting/dancing/singing/writing/interpretative mime leave A LOT to be desired!
Like Will & Grace's Jack McFarland, High School Musical's Ryan Evans or Ugly Betty's Justin Suarez before him, Kit Karter is flamboyant, fabulous and hilarious. But unlike his predecessors he's no fluffy push over. In fact it's pretty safe to assume that under that glittering exterior lies a heart of gold and a gritty strength of character, unafraid to fight for who and what he loves. No wonder he's Sadie's rock.
Aged 9 - 11
Comic Hook: The Hyperactive Dynamo – think second, act first!
Danny is as energetic (and cute) as one of those Pink Duracell bunnies, he's a force of nature. Full of rubbish nicknames for people, bad 'robot' moves and complicated takes on 'high fiving' Danny can't sit still for more than five minutes.
A proper little boy Danny is a wreckless, hyperactive dynamo whom we will adore.
Aged 9 - 11
In this relationship it's Danny who is in the driving seat and Jake is more than happy to go along for the ride. A natural follower not a leader, Jake has had his fingers burned several times by agreeing to go along with one of Danny's ideas. But he's the Yin to Danny's Yang and if he won't go along with it, who will? Thus the pair have a catalogue of misadventures, during which Jake usually got the short end of the stick...
Jake is more of a thinker than a talker... so when he does speak, it's to impart some pretty profound thoughts!
