Director Stephen Griffin
Jay Rathbone – Male, Late 20’s-Early 30’s
Jay hosts the highest rated program at a paranormal talk radio station, a show on sightings. He is the consummate sweet, normal guy. People like him and he likes them. But sometimes he’s too nice. He can sometimes follow his selflessness to his own peril. He isn’t a total goober but he is a little intimidated by women. He’s talented, dedicated, and personable, but he definitely doesn’t act like he knows it. He loves his friends and family but things get difficult when he has to put one above the other.
Lacey Del Rio – Female, Hispanic Late 20’s-Early30’s
Lacey hosts a radio talk show on various mythical or magical creatures. She is beautiful, polite, smart, and subtly strange. She isn’t crazy, but she shamelessly discusses her interests and beliefs in various supernatural/paranormal subjects, creatures in particular. She enjoys the normal things about Jay and his niceness, but she often thinks he’s much more mysterious than any of the creatures she discusses.
Kurt Buzlerd – Male, 30’s-50’s
Kurt hosts a radio talk show on psychic encounters. He is loyal, passionate, wears his heart on his sleeve, and always acts with the best of intentions. But above all he’s a little weird. He’s weird enough to be the weirdest dude in a group of very quirky people. He believes in aliens, ghosts, psychics, and many other paranormal and supernatural things but he’s not out of his mind. He lives a somewhat grounded existence but always keeps an eye on the sky. He doesn’t know when to quit and would sacrifice himself for any friend.
Howard Bellringo – Male, 60’s-70’s
Howard is the owner of a radio station that focuses primarily on paranormal/supernatural content. He’s an avid collector and dealer of paranormal artifacts and memorabilia. The station and his employees are his life. Without them he’d have nothing. He enjoys the strange things discussed at his station, but, being a struggling local businessman, he often gets doses of hard reality. He is a can-do guy, but he often takes some of the seemingly trivial situations in life very seriously.
Dwayne Archimedes – Male, 30’s-40’s
Dwayne is a good-looking man that lives in a trailer and has aspirations of being a paranormal talk radio personality. Dwayne has a special knack for bothering Kurt even though he likes him. Dwayne hasn’t gotten many chances, but is still hoping someone will see his value.
Grandma Sofia – Female, Hispanic, 60’s-70’s
Sofia is Lacey’s grandmother. She’s from Mexico, or at least it seems that way. There’s something downright surreal about her. She is cryptic. She never seems to be paying attention to the same thing as everyone else, but somehow always seems like she’s onto something. She does everything with purpose, no matter how strange it is. She goes everywhere with Lacey.
Ralph Cheeks – Male, late 30’s
Ralph is the owner of a dilapidated ice cream shop that is in such a condition solely from his neglect. He is a sloppy overweight man with little regard for anyone but himself. He only appears at the ice cream store to periodically stuff his face. He has money through some distant inheritance.
Jarvis – Male, little person, 30’s-40’s
Jarvis is a ghost hunter with a temper. He is diligent and says little. When he does say something it’s usually shouted. Jarvis feels a powerful need to help people troubled by ghosts and failure in this regard is maddening for him.
Phil – Male, 20’s
Phil is a sharp young man with restaurant experience. He’s a loyal worker and friend. Phil, though young himself, doesn’t hesitate to crack the whip on young slackers. He’s a good person to lean on in times of trouble.
