Tweens take their shot at stardom

By Sara Callender • ECCENTRIC STAFF WRITER • May 17, 2009

Jenny Scherzininger always dreamed of being an actress.

She might now be one step closer. The Lake Orion 10-year-old, along with hundreds of other actors at the Radisson Inn in Bloomfield Hills, recently auditioned for The Wannabes — a television show about the lives of “tweens.”

The Wannabes will be the first TV series fully produced and filmed in Michigan.

“I really like Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston,” Jenny said. “I think they're really talented. I really enjoy performing.”

The casting call was sponsored by S3 Entertainment Group, a Ferndale-based company that provides production services, film financing, gear rental and tax incentive consulting. The group was specifically looking for children between the ages of 9 and 15 for principal roles.
