The Other Two Plot: What is it about?
The series revolves primarily around a family of misfits and the wildly comical events that seem to unfold around them. Cary is a struggling actor who finds himself auditioning for weird roles. As the series begins, he is seen preparing for the “Man at Party Who Smells Fart.” His sister, Brook has nothing significant going in her life and is seen struggling to do something productive. Each caught in their own drama, neither could have expected what happens next – their young brother Chase becomes a celebrity overnight after his music video “I Wanna Marry U At Recess” goes viral. With millions of fans drooling over him, news channels are quick to tag him as “the next big white kid.” He hires a management team that monitors every one of his activities and draws publicity campaigns to further his success.
As Chase revels in his new-found stardom, Cary and Brooke learn the hard way that the world that entertains only famous people. The duo buckles under Chase’s success and are soon reduced to being the “The Other Two,” which brings us to the title of the series which is an excellent satirical examination of various day-to-day issues.
“It’s set in this pop-culture world and satirizes a lot of elements of that, but we really set out to make a show about a family,” Sarah Schneider said. “We like the idea that there’s this deep, family issue that they haven’t quite come to terms with, but then having to be thrust into this Chase world, they’re having to deal with it publicly.”
Case Walker whose rise to fame is not unlike his character’s shared how he landed the role in the series. He said, “I think they had been looking for [someone for] the role for a while and then they turned to social media to look for people. They reached out through Musical.ly, actually. Which is really, really cool that’s how they found me. I had been into acting for like six months before that, had just started taking a couple of classes. Hadn’t really done any auditions or anything like that. I happened to be in California when they reached out to me, and I went into the audition. I was kind of like, and I’m going to go in and be myself and do what I know and try to be this character the best I can. It worked out.”
