Series Synopsis:
Martial Artist Master Chris Crudelli is a man on a mission: Recruit an elite group of fighters to join a secret organization called The Order.

Each episode of The Order: First Degree sees Crudelli travel to the corners of the earth in search of upcoming world-class combatants – men and women who have become expert practitioners in their chosen art under the watchful eye of a local master in the discipline. Tapping into the art’s codes and traditions, Crudelli will test the candidates’ skills and determination through a series of grueling physical and character-building challenges, culminating in a showcase bout between the two fighters.

Having selected the top candidate, Crudelli then subjects his recruit to the final test: a full-contact and spectacular sparring session with none other than Master Crudelli himself, drawing from the full array of his martial expertise. In the end, only the chosen few shall receive (and accept) the ultimate invitation from Crudelli: to be initiated within the First Degree of the mysterious Order…

Pilot Synopsis:

On a mission to recruit the world's finest martial artists for The Order, Chris Crudelli travels to South Africa looking for a promising Zulu Stick Fighter

Characters / Personnage
 
1. The Cook - Principal - 45 to 80 - Male / Masculin - Any

ROLE -
(Principal) THE COOK - MALE - 45 - 80 yrs.


Open to all Ethnicities. Our man is endowed with considerable charisma, a quiet confidence and ancient wisdom. He commands the space, comes off as an authority figure with Shamanistic/Sensei qualities, and represents the closest we'll ever get to the deeper levels a secret organization of fighters. He may be North American or landed immigrant from some unknown Eastern European country. He speaks English well but can also have an accent. He's been around, is a little older, but of undetermined age. Short or tall, big or small, is not as important as his spiritual stature. He could have scars or tattoos, long or short hair, but he must possess the honesty and mental prowess to carry off the mystique of his position in the organization. His face will most always be in shadow, as our access to him is purposely limited. His skills in the kitchen would lead one to believe he is a chef, or at least a line cook, and although it may be true that in his youth he probably sweated it out in a number of dirty kitchens, these days he doesn't need the work. He cooks for the pleasure of it. Like in meditation, preparing and cooking food relaxes him.

This character shoots 1 day, possibly 2.
