KENILWORTH, NJ – The much anticipated “K-Town” pilot cast members have been announced. Co-writer and producer Kevin Brodie describes the TV series as a “modern day Sopranos with a twist in terms of how specific situations affect the community as a whole not just one another.” Brodie and his co-writer and producer Billy Hartmann are planning to hold auditions for the rest of the cast on February 22, 2020, in Kenilworth. The filming of the pilot is set to begin in March.
At the moment the cast members include:
Bill Gargiles - Vincent “The Buff” Buffalino
Billy Hartmann - Angelo “Smalls” Smallilone
Kevin Brodie - Frankie “Fries”
Billy Gargiles - Vincent “Little Buff” Buffalino Jr
Tony Ferro - Tony “Big Tony” Deluca
Terence Johnson - Nelson “Newark” Brown
Rhonda Williams - Mayor Victoria DiVito
Harold A. Bridgeforth - Kenilworth Detective Tom Patterson.
Collaborating together, Hartman and Brodie bounced many ideas off one another. Writing the pilot Hartmann articulated, “I was thinking of the characters I wanted to cast in the roles and how they interact with other cast members in a scene.” He says so far, the choices have been “tremendously overwhelming.” He emphasizes for those looking to audition, “we are looking for characters that can show their talents.” He is striving for prospective actors to “become that character with your body language and face expression.” Hartmann also believes that television networks are looking for the next “Mob Series.”
Billy Gargiles, who is cast with his brother and 82-year-old father is thrilled to be a part of this project. “I’ve known Billy Hartmann a long time and excited to hear he was working on a script based upon a local town. When I read the script, I was thrilled to learn it was Kenilworth he was referring to. I was humbled and excited that he had a role with me in mind. It’s a great plot and I can’t wait to get started.” In addition to the cast members the confirmed filming locations will be at Buffy’s Tavern and Three Guys From Italy restaurant.
