Chicago 139 Productions announced that Angie Campbell has joined the cast of Staydream, taking over the role of Alex.
Born in Milwaukee, this Chicago-based actress originally studied psychology before returning her focus to her passion: acting. Ms. Campbell now pursues acting and improv full time. She has since appeared in a variety of short films and web productions, as well as the television show Chicago Fire.
Initially hearing about Staydream through a friend, Ms. Campbell was excited to audition for the role of Alex, stating, “I was immediately drawn to Staydream’s quick, witty writing and characters that felt real.”
Future episodes of Staydream are currently in pre-production.
Chicago 139 announced today that the writers room, led by head writer Peter Rambo, has completed work on the next three issues of the Staydream series. The new episodes follow Nadia Klempner, played by Madison-based actor Nadia Geiger, as she heads off to college.
Pre-production on the episodes will begin on Tuesday, November 28, when department heads will come together to begin the work of breaking down the scripts and preparing to go back into production.
The Staydream team is still seeking cast and crew to work on future episodes. Check the website for more information.
Post-production work has been completed on the pilot episode of Staydream and the producers have set a date for the premier. Chicago 139 will make the link public on its website on December 4, 2017.
“I could not be happier with the result of the hard work we’ve put into this production,” said Dave Grundgeiger, executive producer of Staydream and founder of Chicago 139 Productions. “We set out to develop a project that is funny and that is rich in story and characters, and I believe we have accomplished that. Our inspirations are Master of None, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, New Girl, and 30 Rock.”
