Picture it: a group of friends involved in the unthinkable, with only trust in each other keeping them from snapping. Little by little, the group dynamics fray until, by the end, it’s too late. 

This is the story of RVSH, TV Studio 2 Spring 2023’s pilot.

 RVSH has found its cast for five main characters. 

The pilot tells the story of a group of friends involved in covering up a death.

Calla Standt has been cast as Leah, the new girl. Leah is just trying to fit in now that she’s in college. She comes from a rough childhood and longs for acceptance and sisterhood. She is innocent and looks like she could not hurt a fly. Leah usually goes with whatever the group says. 

Junior Xzy-Naye Campbell has been cast as the sorority president, Skylar. She is portrayed as a popular, sweet girl with a large social following. She is super pretty and nice. She can be described as Little Miss Perfect and takes charge when needed. She feels a lot of guilt over what happened.

“I’m extremely excited to be cast as Skylar! I’m so grateful for the opportunity, and I can’t wait to be a part of RUSH with my fellow cast members, tv production crew, and amazing writers,” Xzy-Naye commented.

Adria McGarry has been cast as feisty Max. Max is very straight up and blunt. She doesn’t seem like your typical sorority girl, but don’t let that stop her from getting what she wants. Max has been friends with Skylar for a long time, and that’s the only reason she’s in the sorority. She sees through lies effortlessly. 

“I’m so excited to be playing Max because she’s such a cool character who is different yet so similar to myself; I can’t wait to explore this character,” Adria added.

Sophomore Katie Pabon has been chosen to play Sam. Sam and Skylar have a backstory; they’ve been friends with Skylar since high school. Sam is very close with Skylar, who wants her to join the sorority. 

“I’m very excited to be playing Sam and embodying her character,” Katie said.

Myles Bentancourt is Tyler, described as the typical rom-com boyfriend of Skylar, but he’s not like other guys. Tyler is dramatic and funny and brings comedic relief. He cares about others and deeply cares about his reputation. Tyler loves Skylar even when he’s frustrated by her.

Every character is involved with Greek life, and the story takes place over the course of a few days, including Rush Week. 

The class is still looking for extras, so if you’re interested please reach out!

TV Studio 2’s filming begins in February and goes until mid-April.
