the table read!

Yesterday, Brian, Patrick and I gathered all of the actors together for a table read in our humble abode in North Hollywood. It went swimmingly. This is the first time we've all heard the script read aloud and I must say, it sounded great. We're all getting really, really excited about this thing. We absolutely love the actors we're working with, they're funny, they're nice, they're dedicated and they made every little moment come alive, even just sitting on the couches in our apartment.

After that, Jeff Billings, our director of photography, came over and had a nice, long meeting with Brian discussing the look of this new series. We're really upping our game on this one and are giving it a much more cinematic feel than the low budget, down and dirty, independent style we used on "We Need Girlfriends."

It's all moving along nicely as we head towards the first weekend of filming. The updates will continue! Stay tuned.

Ragtag Productions is proud to announce they have begun production on their latest webseries “MY FUTURE GIRLFRIEND." This five-part mini-movie is described as a “romantic comedy Terminator" and marks the team's first foray into sci-fi comedy. It follows Clark, a schlubby underachiever, who is visited by Kelly, his girlfriend from five years in the future who tells him that due to a rift in the timeline, she must help him fall in love with the present day version of herself.

Ragtag's first webseries, "We Need Girlfriends," gained over one million visitors a month to its official site. It was written about in the New York Times, Huffington Post, Slate, USA Today, Yahoo News, The Guardian Unlimited and numerous other publications, before it was sold to Sony Pictures and CBS as a half-hour pilot script, which is currently in development.

"My Future Girlfriend" will be directed by Brian Amyot based on a script by Steven Tsapelas. It will be produced by Amyot, Tsapelas and Patrick Cohen.

The show will star Evan Gaustad as CLARK, one-half of the lead couple. Gaustad is coming off of the webseries “Vicarious.”

It will also star Cheryl Texiera as KELLY…

Former “We Need Girlfriends” star Brigitte Hagerman as the mysterious LISA…

Kirsten Scoles as one of Clark’s best friends, the tough, tomboy CHRISTINA…

And another “We Need Girlfriends” alum, Patrick Cohen as Clark’s other best friend, the loud, obnoxious ALAN…

The series will start shooting in December and is aiming for a spring release.

Stay tuned to this blog for more information as we get further into the process!
