Written by Melissa Axelrod based on the TC Boyle novel and to be directed by Zwigoff, Budding Prospects is set in 1983 San Francisco. Three hapless city boys — Felix (Rose), Phil (Moore) and Gesh (Sasso) — move to the country to grow marijuana. Their expectations of the experience being a back-to-the-land, nurturing adventure in a beautiful rustic setting run up against the harsh truth upon their arrival at “The Summer Camp” – a miserably run-down shanty out in the middle of nowhere, where they are bedeviled by rats, snakes, mosquitoes, harsh growing conditions, noisy neighbors, dangerous locals and menacing law enforcement.
Rose’s Felix is a lovelorn romantic who is sensitive, brooding, vulnerable and ruefully self-aware but also likable and compelling. Zwigoff and Axelrod executive produce with Vincent Landay. Joanna Colbert is co-executive producer.
Rose returns to Supernatural this season to reprise his guest-starring role as Aaron Bass and recently was tapped for a guest stint on the upcoming Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet. He is repped by BRS/Gage Talent Agency.
