HSN Host, author and actress, Forbes Riley, attaches to Made U Look Productions' first feature film, "Casey."
Forbes will portray the role of Ms. Smith, serving as a much needed shoulder for the reclusive Casey to cry on, as he endures his mother's, drunken wrath, and Teresa's unreconciled, tumultuous love for him.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to have Forbes Riley as Ms. Smith. For those who know me, Ms. Smith was very instrumental in my childhood development, and is someone that I love very dearly. I can't imagine anyone more ideal, than Forbes Riley to fill those shoes," according to writer and filmmaker, Dane Terrell.
Known as The Billion Dollar Host, Forbes Riley has helped gross over a $1 billion dollars in products such as Jack Lalanne Juicer and the Living Well HealthMaster Blender, for HSN, QVC, and other prominent shopping networks. In addition, Forbes has made countless appearances on Fox, ESPN and ABC networks. Forbes has since gone on to enormous success with her revolutionary, SpinGym product, selling nearly 500,000 units. A tireless, Health and Fitness advocate, Forbes was inducted into the Fitness Hall Of Fame this year, joining the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jane Fonda.
A character-driven drama, "Casey," centers on Teresa, (Noureen DeWulf of The Backup Plan and Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past) as a guilt-ridden wife suffering through her miscarriages, her broken marriage with Paul, and her conflicted love for Casey, a seventeen-year old, daydreamer, being abused by his alcoholic mother, Norma.
Along with Nourneen DeWulf, Tamela D'Amico and Forbes Riley, Casey, features attachments from Joan Severance, Lisa Pescia, Silvia Spross and Robert Miano.
Made U Look Productions was formed in 2009, by Dane Terrell, with the aim of producing mid level, independent films, featuring strong, female protagonists.
