Vanishing Angle makes ‘The Call’

Dramedy is feature directorial debut for UCB alum Scott Rodgers

Independent production company Vanishing Angle is set to produce its first feature film “The Call,” a dramedy that will mark the feature directorial debut of Upright Citizens Brigade and Funny or Die alum Scott Rodgers, who wrote the script with co-star Kat Foster.

In addition to Rogers and Foster, ensemble cast also includes Rosemarie DeWitt, Sean Astin, Thomas Sadoski (“The Newsroom”), Timm Sharp (“Enlightened”), Pablo Schreiber (“Orange Is the New Black”), Riki Lindhome (“Hell Baby”) and Paul F. Tompkins (“Best Week Ever”).

Foster stars as an actress who lands the role of a lifetime opposite an Oscar-winning playboy (Schreiber) in a risqué mini-series. Her dream job becomes her boyfriend’s (Rodgers) worst nightmare and threatens to destroy their fragile relationship in the three short days until she leaves to start filming.

Vanishing Angle’s Matt Miller and Erich Lochner are producing the film along with Rodgers and Foster, while Andrew Carlberg (“Some Girl(s)”) is exec producing.

California-based Vanishing Angle, which will start production on “The Call” this month, has produced a string of award-winning short films, music videos and commercials.
