Pheobe Robinson’s Freefrom pilot comedy Everything’s Trash has rounded out its cast of series regulars.
Jordan Carlos, Toccarra Cash, Nneka Okafor, and Moses Storm join Robinson in the half-hour comedy. It is inspired by Robinson’s book Everything’s Trash But It’s Ok. Chioke Nassor is directing the pilot and Robinson is penning the script.
The series follows Phoebe (Robinson). She is a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life, but when her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood since she doesn’t seem to have a clue.
Carlos is Jayden. He is Phoebe’s Blerd-y younger brother and a newly elected NY State representative. Their boundary-less relationship must change as Phoebe’s wild yet entertaining behavior threatens to overshadow his Barack Obama-esque aspirations.
Cash is Malika. She is also Phoebe’s savvy, smart and beautiful “Code Switch Queen” podcast producer. As Phoebe’s work wife and ride or die friend, Malika tries to balance wanting Phoebe to grow up with also encouraging her to be messy because hey, the mess pays the bills and is funny AF.
Okafor plays Jessie, Phoebe’s sister-in-law. She is a former socialite-turned-feminist and college professor. She worries that she is the only one in her in-laws’ family that has the strength to let Phoebe know that some of her shenanigans are dangerous to her husband’s career and too influential on her daughter.
Storm plays Michael, Phoebe’s BFF, roommate and friend since freshman year of college. He is a video game live streamer who is not ashamed to promote his TikTok whenever he can. Michael is more than happy to not grow up and will be the playful devil on Phoebe’s shoulder.
Robinson and Nassor will executive produce Everything’s Trash with Jonathan Groff.
There is no premiere date attached as of yet.
