Mission Statement

Our focus as a production company is, and will always be, inclusivity towards our cast and crew, ranging from the ages 20-58, all representing their proud ethnicities (Hispanic, African American, Middle Eastern, Caucasian, Asian), and strong supporters/members of the LGBTQ community.

The Story

After the sudden death of a pessimistic father, his three unhinged children are left an inheritance far beyond their expected means, as they begin to uncover the secrecy of their fathers double life. Watch two families collide where Arrested Development meets Shameless. 

We are a three-person production company based out of New York City. Our mission is to partner with the most unique and innovative filmmakers both on and off the camera. We strive to push bounderies by exploring relatable, yet explicit characters who transpire through a diverse and driven cast. We strive to make you laugh, cry, but most importantly converse with one another.

About This Team

Entitled is lead by the creative minds of Patrick Shay, Ryan Sarno, and Patrick Daly. Patrick Shay and Ryan met in film school while attending Hofstra University. They then hired Patrick Daly as an actor for one of their senior thesis films, and the rest is history.


Before pre-production began, they casted Gabriella (Gabby) Piazza as their lead, Sophie McCockan. Gabby is an up and coming force in the film industry as she has not only acted in a variety of television shows and short films, but she has also created, produced, and starred in many of her own films that went on to win many awards in select film festivals on the East coast. She currently wrapped on filming for her debut role in "The Many Saints of Newark" starring along the late James Gandolfini's son, Michael Gandolfini.


The team needed a powerhouse of strong women actors, especially for the role of Carol McCockan. Luckily for RPS, Tracy McMullan was gold. As a veteran actress, and proud mother, Tracy has spent her entire life performing, whether it be on stage in a play, or singing her heart out, or both; whether it be on a set for a television show like "The Dueces", or even on an Alaskan cruise, as the star of the show. Essentially, she can do it all.


In search of a fierce, talented, and attractive supporting, female role, the team found soonf found Stefanie Bloom. Her hardwork and tenacity has constantly landed her roles in television, short films, and feature films. Her most recent role, as Sophia, in the new movie "2050",  has her acting alongside Dean Cain, and many other strong actors and actresses.


Returning to the acting world, Sahirah Lord wowed the team with her confidence, attention to detail, and her overall fearlessness. Those same traits has quickly landed her lead roles in National commercials, and supporting roles in upcoming films.


A recent graduate of NYU, Kayland Jordan is far from "green" when it comes to performing. She's an up and coming star who is bound for success.


They team was eager to hire Director of Photography, Marco Andre, who's brilliance can be seen in nationwide commercials, television, and feature films.


In need of THE best make up artist in NYC, RPS reached out to Alejandro Zabala as their lead artist. His masterpiece can be seen in each and every scene. Truly one of a kind!


The character Josh McCockan is one that has witt, and very strong comedic timing... We give you Blake Rice! He's a stand up comedian/ actor/ writer/ director/ producer/ stud muffin/ any and all aspects of film. His directoral work has recently been nominated for best picture in selective film festivals along the East coast.


The team saw Sergio Acevedo's taped audition, and fell in love. Working many years as a fashion model, Sergio has dove head first into the acting world, dedicating everything to his craft-- A force to be reckonned with.


The team spent a long time looking for that one actor who could nail the role of Steve... Lo and behold, RPS found Tom Staggs. Although new to the acting world, Tom's eagerness, ability to take chances as a performer, and his overall energy that he brought to set, is what made him the perfect fit.
