Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee Eric Roberts as Peter Gable

Last year, our production company Next Actor Films, made a feature called 6 ROUNDS OF CHLOE, in which celebrated actor Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Expendables) played the role of the oncologist, Dr. Bing. The experience of working with Eric was so fantastic, that the creators of Bleep Love, San Banarje and Trisha Ray, decided to bring back Eric as the yesteryear star of Hollywood – Peter Gable.

Eric Roberts is a fantastic actor who does comedy so well. He enjoys being on set and loves to act. It will be a great shoot, as we can already anticipate.

We welcome Eric to the cast of Bleep Love.

CASTING

In 2006, we made a comedy feature called BLEEP LOVE. We had great fun shooting it, because we had been able to cast some really good talents of Houston. In 2014, we wrote a series based upon the same screenplay. We wanted to get the series done at that time, but before we could take it off the ground, we got busy shooting A Curry on an American Plate (2015), Orphan Train (2015), Orphan Train Series (2016-2017) and 6 Rounds of Chloe (2018).
Finally, now with 6 Rounds of Chloe completed, we have decided to move forward with this hilarious comedy series before we start anything else.

If you were involved in the film version and would like to participate in the series, please send us an email, as we would love to have some of our original cast in the series.
