CBS is looking for the next breakout talent.
CBS is holding an open casting call to launch its CBS Drama Diversity Casting Initiative, a nationwide program to find new breakout talent for CBS’ current series and upcoming pilots. The initiative is designed to reach untapped talent across the country, including areas with limited access to industry professionals, and bring them to the attention of casting executives and CBS showrunners. The initiative is focused on increasing opportunities for people who belong to groups that have traditionally been underrepresented, including African American, Asian American, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, LGBTQ actors and performers with disabilities. Actors should possess strong dramatic talent and a technical skill set.
Beginning Thursday, October 13th through Friday, October 28th, actors 18 and older can submit a self-taped monologue here.
CBS casting executives will review all online submissions and make selections for regional auditions (locations below) where actors will rehearse with casting executives and be put on tape.
Atlanta November 7-9
Austin November 3-4
Chicago November 2-4
Miami November 10-11
San Francisco November 10-11
Following these regional casting sessions, 14-16 actors will be selected to travel to Los Angeles for a Network screen test that will be utilized for casting opportunities for current series, pilot season and beyond.
