‘Quarter’: Ali Wentworth, Brooke Shields & Raven-Symoné To Join Kelsey Bascom Coming-Of-Age Feature Film Debut

EXCLUSIVE: Ali Wentworth, Raven-Symoné, and Brooke Shields have joined the cast of Kelsey Bascom‘s coming-of-age feature film comedy, Quarter. The film also stars Bascom, and includes Breckin Meyer (Garfield, Rat Race), Tati Gabrielle (You, Uncharted), Eric Roberts (Babylon, Runaway Train), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Brec Bassinger (Stargirl), Dot-Marie Jones (Bros, Glee), and Matty Cardarople (Stranger Things), and Derek Theler (American Gods).

Written by Bascom and co-directed by Bascom and Peabody Award-winning director Arnon Manor (who also serves as SVP of Visual Effects production at Sony Pictures), the film follows Kelly, a young woman living with Type 1 diabetes, who’s about to turn 25, as she deals with the ups and downs of her blood sugar levels and the ups and downs of her personal life.

“I wrote Quarter because I want to normalize and bring awareness to Type 1 diabetes (T1D),” Bascom said. “Most narrative films or TV shows that incorporate Type 1 diabetes either misinterpret or overdramatize it, and we want this film to feel real and the audience to get inside Kelly’s head, a normal person with an abnormal autoimmune disease. It’s all very personal.”

Quarter is produced by Arnon Manor. Other producers include Kelsey Bascom, Judi Bell, Krista Minto, Ayelet Junger, and Bri Lageyre, and features the largest assemblage of T1Ds on a film production to-date.

Ali Wentworth is repped by CAA, Raven-Symoné is repped by Verve and The Pacella Law Group; and Brooke Shields is repped by UTA, Untitled, Ziffren Brittenham LLP, and JFPR.
