To celebrate the release of Casa Grande, we spoke with the amazing cast and filmmakers of the show – a whopping sixteen people!

Casa Grande follows the lives of rich Southern family dynasties and the immigrant families who work on their farms as they deal with power plays and ICE.

We spoke about wrangling such a huge talented cast as well as working on an actual, working (and smelly) dairy farm!

Casa Grande Cast & Crew Interview


CASA GRANDE is an hour-long serial narrative drama which follows an ensemble cast through the intertwining lives of various families in the farmland of Northern California. It is an upstairs/downstairs story transposed from turn-of-the century English countryside to rural America. The show uses the framework of conventional character drama to explore universal themes of class, immigration, culture, and family. Casa Grande’s narrative examines the compelling, everyday realities and conflicts between California’s overworked and underpaid farmworkers and the wealthier families who own the Farms and reap the profits, asking the question “What will mankind endure for a taste of the American Dream?”
