98 PRIMETIME, 27 CABLE PILOTS CURRENTLY!
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the
PRIME TIME NETWORKS are producing 98 PILOTS this
That’s up from 87 last year.
Here’s the article:
What they don’t include are the 27 pilots out there
being produced for the CABLE NETWORKS…so that puts the
current list that is casting at about 125 pilots…
That’s busy. Each one has from 4 to 8 series regulars to
cast and another 4 to 10 possible recurring roles.
So if they are looking for a perfect fit, they may see
200 to 300 young actors for each role that they are casting.
That means lots of auditions.
According to my informal information, there are 35 roles
for PRIME TIME SHOWS for young actors so far.
Part of that is because there are TWO (or more) pilots
about middle school teachers. One is based on BAD TEACHER
and the other is untitled so far.
Plus, there are another 27 roles for youth for CABLE PILOTS!
That’s a lot of roles to be cast, even in HOLLYWOOD.
Usually during pilot season there will be 10 to 12 youth
roles for the PRIME TIME NETS and 15 to 20 for the CABLE
So the YOUTH MARKET is HOT on TV currently.
More opportunities, and, since there are more kids already on
TV, that means there is more competition.
So it’s a CAST-FEST out in HOLLYWOOD right now.
Some super CONGRATULATIONS are in order.
***First Actorsiters Jack Griffo and Addison Riecke have been
slated for a full series order for the show THE THUNDERMANS
