Synopsis: 
It's 2003 and Lucia Torres, 13 yrs, only wants one thing in her life, to be the best actress of her generation. But thanks to her over bearing Latin American family, Lucia's troubled choices lead to embarrassing moments that only get magnified by her dramatic sense of humour. Growing up Latina is not as easy as it may seem. With a loud matriarch house hold, family constantly pouring in from all walks of the earth, older siblings setting unreachable standards, younger siblings with attitude and Abuelos who like to chime when ever they feel like it, Lucia's life is as chaotic as you can imagine. Oh, and let's not even mention the puberty... The tone and general feel of this show will be similar to "That's So Raven" and "Lizzie McGuire."

Do you want some food? I made some Sancoho. Are you feeling sick? Vaporub!" You'll never see her without her lipstick and she always has something to complain about. You can bet your pretty penny that Marina takes after her (though Marina would disagree!). Nothing gets between her and her novelas... unless one of her grandchildren is hungry!

We have been searching for a local Vancouver actor to play a dual role of “Stupid White Boy” – age 30 something who can also play 50 something – a strong 30 – 40 year-old character actor of Euro descent.

With Sonnerie’s help Dan can become a part of the family once again.
Additional Characters: 

Agatha (Female – 19)
The youngest of the Lockwoods, Agatha is the newest to learn her psychic ability which is the ability to speak to the dead. Unlike Kyle and her parents, this charming, creepy, innocent teen does not see Dan in as the outcast of the family, but finds he is the only one she can really connect with.

Guinevere (Female – 40’s)

Richard (Male – 40’s)
The telekinetic father of the Lockwood family, Richard, is the classic dad. Stern, gruff, but with a bit of elegance, Richard does not care about the reputation of the family, but rather about the powers of his children. Other than that, Richard does not really care about what his children do. When it comes to Dan, he is disappointed in the lack of a psychic powers he has. He does not try to hide this disappointment around Dan as his monotone and dulled reactions to Dan’s issues seem to be the only reaction Dan can get.
