L.A. Web Series ‘Beverly Pills’ Seeks Addicts

26 September 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Drug use is a compelling theme in episodic entertainment, be it the comedy “Weeds,” the drama “Breaking Bad,” or the Web series “High Maintenance.” Freelance filmmaker Luis Bustamante further explores the fertile ground in his comedic Web series, “Beverly Pills,” which follows Beverly Hills socialite Scarlett Davis (Ginger Parker), who after the government seizes her fortune, is forced to turn to drug dealing to make ends meet.  Bustamante, an Art Institute of California alum, started his project by conducting some very basic research. He didn’t want to be “stepping on toes and stealing people’s ideas,” he told Backstage. Still, the director describes “Beverly Pills” as a hybrid of “Weeds” and “Desperate Housewives,” with reality TV providing some inspiration for the main character.  When he cast Parker, a colleague and classmate, Bustamante told her to watch episodes of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and play close attention to Brandi Glanville. »
