THE SOLUTION- A BRAND NEW TV PILOT COMING SOON
The first production from the recently formed FatOedo Productions, The Solution is an original independent pilot devised by AlexKayode-Kay (“Make America Black Again”). A comedic detective story with a unique twist, The Solution follows the adventures of a down on his luck private detective, whose fortunes become forever changed when he meets a 12 year old girl who happens to be a certified genius.
Actor-Writer-Producer Kayode-Kay says, “I’ve always been fascinated by detective stories onscreen. From The Maltese Falcon to Luther. These stories have a universal appeal. Adding comedy to the mix really opens up the possibilities. As a writer, I definitely find it interesting to try and play within the genre and hopefully bring something new to it”.
Award winning fillmmaker Ruggero Dalla Santa is attached as the director of the pilot. Ruggero cut his teeth directing showreels, having directed over 500 actors in that arena. He’s since progressed to directing short films and developing TV and feature length projects. His most recent short film, Creation, photographed by BAFTA winning DP Arturo Vasquez, won Best Picture at the Muybridge Short Film Festival in 2017, and was nominated for Best Sci-Fi Short Film at the 42nd Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival in 2017. One of the fastest rising young filmmakers in the industry, with a brilliant visual eye that will be instrumental in bringing The Solution to screen.
FatOedo Productions is pleased to announce the casting of Beau Rambaut in one of the lead roles. Her screen roles to date include the role of Head Commander in Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth and upcoming superhero drama The Academy. A gifted stage actress who has also taken on challenging theatre roles such as Harper Pitt in Tony Kushner’s Angels In America, Beau is an actress who has been tipped for stardom and The Solution is a project glad to have a major talent like Beau onboard.
Also cast is Charis Agbonlahor. Charis is a multi-talented, triple threat. Actress-Model-Playwright. A veteran of numerous major modeling campaigns, Charis is also a gifted playwright having written the acclaimed play Cobra, and written and directed the play Jasmine, a searing social commentary. As an actress, Charis credits include the role of Maria in Federico Garcia Lorca’s Yerma on stage, and the TV series Shrink.
AlexKayode-Kay will be acting alongside Beau and Charis in one of the lead roles and the rest of the casting will be confirmed by the end of April through open and invited auditions, with a production shoot date scheduled for June. The pilot will be screened to festivals, streaming services and terrestial networks in early Autumn to try and bring the production to full series.
