About Tokens the web series

Winner of the Canadian Screen Awards 2020 Best Direction in a Web Program or Series by creator Winnifred Jong. 

 

Sammie (Connie Wang, “Second Jen”), an aspiring Asian actress, tired of stereotypical roles, joins On Call Casting run by the inimitable Betty (Shelley Thompson, "Trailer Park Boys") and gets an assignment with unusual challenges. Along the way she meets DeMar (Ryan Allen, “21 Thunder”) who has to rethink his dream as a stunt coordinator-turn-actor and some harried production staff, trying to make it work.

Created by Winnifred Jong and produced by Trinni Franke, TOKENS is a tongue-in-cheek comedy about the actors who find themselves randomly sent to productions desperate to hit their diversity quotas. Think Uber for actors.

Starring Connie Wang, Ryan Allen, Shelley ThompsonDaniel MaslanyJessica Greco, Sharron Matthews, Christina Song, Russell Yuen, Amy Matysio, Jonathan CherryKrystal Kiran, Gabe Grey, Samora Smallwood, Sedina Fiati, Ella Jonas Farlinger, Chelsea Clark , Ehren Kassam
