Dirty Cues is a satirical comedy-drama original series created by César Gamiño and Susie Lohse, that debuted online October 22, 2015. This original series is a NALIP (National Association of Latino Producers) 2015 Official Selection for their Latino Media Market as well as an Official Selection at HollyShorts Film Festival.
The ensemble original series follows rookie FBI Agent Daniel Brooks (Bryan McClure) whose first undercover mission is to infiltrate a Colombian cartel suspected of laundering money through their Spanglish films. Daniel’s allegiance to his government is tested when he is tempted to follow his heart instead of his oath. Javi Moreno (César Gamiño) relocates from Colombia to Hollywood where he fits in perfectly with the cut throat film industry. His low budget movie studio churns out Spanglish films that go straight to video but somehow make a ton of money. Javi’s right hand woman, producer and casting director, Natalie (Moniqua Plante) runs a tight ship in midst of the chaos and has no clue the FBI has been on Javi’s tail.
“We had so much fun working together on this labor of love! We had the most kick ass cast and crew ever. Funny, good storytelling, strong female characters – my top three favorites all in one,” -Moniqua Plante (Nashville).
Directed by César Gamiño and written by Susie Lohse, Dirty Cues was born out of their desire to showcase amazing talent and original material. “Growing up in a immigrant household, the novelas were always on. I wanted to pay homage to them by producing a project with a Latin flair,” says Gamiño. Natives of Milwaukee, César and Susie’s first project together, “The Violinist”, was well received on the film festival circuit screening at over 35 festivals worldwide earning 11 awards and 5 nominations. The ensemble cast includes: César Gamiño, Bryan McClure, Moniqua Plante, Shana Eva, Lindy Loundagin, Jon Gormley, Brianna Knickerbocker and Marissa Nans. In true novela style, DIRTY CUES satisfies your spicy tooth!
