This is the first in a series of online shows, RetroSpecs sees a group of actors perform a spec script. These are sample scripts for popular TV shows written by professional writers who were at the beginning of their careers. Spec scripts were common in the US television industry for many years.
In this performance the cast will be reading a spec script for Buffy the Vampire Slayer written in 2002 by Julie Plec who would go on to be the creator and showrunner for supernatural series The Vampire Diaries amongst others.
I'm excited to hear this script which will be a story from the Buffyverse that very few people will have heard before. As many of you will know Amber is a former Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast member herself having played the role of Tara Maclay for three seasons. Amber is an amazing actor and I’m sure it will be thrill for Buffy fans to have a former cast member bringing character(s) to life.
Joining Amber in the cast will be:
Isabella Gomez from One Day at a Time
Percy Daggs III from Veronica Mars
Arielle Kebbel Ballers/Midnight Texas, and more
David Anders iZombie and The Vampire Diaries
Lexi Underwood from Little Fires Everywhere
