Synopsis:
In the barrio of Oak Springs live a strong and stubborn group of elderly friends who refuse to be gentrified. Their leader, Lupita, keeps them together as a community, a family. But little do they know, their beloved Bingo hall is about to be sold to a much more powerful force than money itself.

Tony award-winning actress L. Scott Caldwell (Lost, The Fugitive) is the most recent confirmed cast member in Bingo. Other previously announced cast members include Adriana Barraza (Babel) in the role of “Lupita,” Richard Brake (Game of Thrones) in the role of “Mr. Big”, Clayton Landey (Sully) as “Morris”, Jonathan Medina (The Purge) as “Eric”, Bertila Damas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as “Yolanda”, Grover Coulson (Friday Night Lights) as “Clarence”, Kelly Murtagh (The Purge) as “Raquel”, and David Jensen (Midnight Special) as “Mario.”

Caldwell will star as “Dolores,” a witty, loyal and tough grandmother from the neighborhood of Oak Springs who, alongside her best friend “Lupita,” has dedicated her life to the community and will do anything to save it from the nefarious forces that threaten her family and friends. 

The recipient of numerous accolades for her stage work including a Tony Award for her work in August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone, Caldwell’s extensive film and tv resume includes Concussion with Will Smith, The Fugitive, Waiting to Exhale, Devil in The Blue Dress, How To Get Away With Murder, Queen Sugar, Madam Secretary, and is currently recurring as Simone Missick’s mother on the CBS series All Rise, HBO’s Insecure, A Million Little Things, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
