SHAY (17) - female lead. If life is a river, Shay is a rock; things just happen to Shay (Shay doesn’t really happen to things). She’s content just spending her time hanging out with her best friend, Mo. Shay likes to be in control of herself and handle issues on her own; unfortunately, she also tends to push things off. When Shay is impregnated by an unknown superhero at a superhero convention, she must take her fate into her own hands to ensure the safety of her unborn baby. She is also half Indian, half Caucasian. Gymnastics/dance background is preferred, but not necessary.
Project Description: The story, in a nutshell, is a "Juno" meets "Jessica Jones" — a twist on the superhero genre. It tells the story of teenage girl Shay, who finds herself pregnant and with superhero powers. Rather unwillingly she's immersed into the world of superheroes and supervillains as she attempts to find the father of her child.
Dates of Production: March (TBD)
