Cult truTV comedy I’m Sorry announced on Wednesday a sweepstakes that could land fans a role at a virtual table read of the series pilot with series creator, writer, executive producer, and star Andrea Savage.
Partnering with Prizeo for the fundraiser, which benefits Communities In Schools of Los Angeles, the series will select ten winners for speaking parts in the table read, with surprise cameos from a few of Savage’s castmates and celebrity friends popping in to watch. Entries into the sweepstakes are $10 apiece and will be accepted through July 22nd.
“Having fun with the best fans in the world and raising money for an incredible organization that is very special to my family and me? Yes, please!” said Savage. “Plus, I don’t believe this kind of table read has ever been attempted before, so we will all be part of a marvelous experience. Or an epic disaster. Either way, exciting to witness!”
Communities In Schools of Los Angeles specializes in providing case-management for high-needs children and youth who are at risk of dropping out of school and experience behavior problems, attendance issues, or academic needs. It currently serves 11,000 students and 4,000 parents in the Los Angeles Unified School District through placing full-time social workers and youth development professionals on campus to provide students with intense one-on-one case management, small group sessions, career days, and field trips.
Debuting in summer 2017, I’m Sorry follows outspoken, chronically immature comedy writer Andrea (Savage) as she navigates motherhood, marriage, her career, and her social life in suburban Los Angeles. The series has received praise for its nuanced portrayal of the TV mom archetype and its subversion of tropes related to TV marriage and auteur comedies.
In addition to Savage, the series stars Tom Everett Scott (Southland), Kathy Baker (Picket Fences), Martin Mull (Roseanne), and Nelson Franklin (Veep).
