Role Description

Ellen/Jenna: (Supporting) Ellen is Dean’s meticulously put together wife, the head of the 1955 Authenticity Committee, fierce keeper of protocol in the community. She is cheerful in a slightly metallic way. Takes her role and the rules of the community very seriously. Intelligent, and able to capitalize on the mores of the world to suit herself. The strong mask she’s created for the community covers a very vulnerable and insecure interior. She can be a bit like a wounded animal, striking out when she’s hurt. Strong comic actress with a deep emotional well to pull from and an intrinsic understanding of the 1950’s sensibility and demeanor. Jenna Katha’s co-worker and subordinate. Although intelligent and ambitions, she’s a bit bored with her position, and so is very interested in all things unrelated to work. Concerned with other people’s business so that she understands her own place in the pecking order. Takes cues from Omar, who has a bit more history with the company.
