So happy to announce that our Texas guy aka Ryan Rottman will be a part of the cast of MTV‘s comedy pilot Happyland. Written by Ben Epstein, directed by Lee Toland Krieger and executive produced by Neil Meron and Craig Zadan.
Happyland is a soapy teen comedy exploring the underbelly of one of the country’s most popular theme parks and those who work there. Check the script of the story bellow:
It centers on Lucy (Santos), a cynical teen working as a greeter at the park where her single mother (Henao) has played a fairytale princess for 15 years, and explores the realities of growing up and falling in love while living in a make-believe world. (Shane Harper) will be Ian, the handsome son of the park’s new president, a new hire at the park who is smitten by feisty Lucy.
The cast includes some familiar faces such as Zulay Henao (Love Thy Neighbor), Shane Harper (Awkward), Katherine McNamara (Contest) and Cameron Moulene (Raising Hope). Ryan is gonna play Ian ( Shane)’s brother.
UPDATE: Ryan’s character name is Theodore Chandler.
