Starring two Acting Center students, Jeff Larson and Gino Montesinos (the co producer Erika Solsten-Larson is doing privates with David Paladino as well), this Los Angeles based project, “Adopted” follows Kofi (Brian Flaccus), a confused, adopted 16-year-old boy from South Africa, who finds his way to a recently married young American couple that are expecting an infant adopted child. This show follows this family in new stages of life that none of them are ready for which involves two recently married parents forced into giving their new high school son a sex talk, even though they are but 6 years older than him.
This television dramedy is extremely clever and witty. The production’s cast and crew started out small until the script started getting passed around to some of the actors listed above. Doug Jones was one of the first name talent to jump on board with Adopted and the rest followed suit.
The talented writer and producer duo of Jeff Larson and Erika Solsten-Larson are continuing to impress LA with their productions and were recently listed in HQ Magazine as the newest up-and-coming couple to watch in the film industry.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has partnered with Adopted and its crew. The foundation has agreed and been cleared to release every episode on their website and social media sites to share closely with the adoption community a show that seems “close to home.”
