NY TV Casting Directors & Their Projects (Oct 2015)


Photo courtesy of Vanessa Monsisvais / El Paso Times
Many of my students have asked me to compile a comprehensive list of casting directors in NYC who hire actors for TV shows and web series, along with their list of projects. So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about how to reach these casting directors, along with studios where you can take classes/workshops from folks in their office.

Note: This list is subject to change at any time. Not all projects shoot in NYC. Some shoot elsewhere on the East Coast or maintain casting in multiple offices. If it says “Shoots in LA”, it means that they use a NY casting director to manage NY submissions. Other cities, unless otherwise noted, do their primary casting out of NY.)

Hello, and thanks for your question. Based on what I can see, this is not a reputable casting site. Sites that promise casting notices for movies and TV are rarely reputable - your best bet is to stick with traditional casting websites like Actors Access, Backstage, Casting Networks and LA Casting. Here is a post I wrote with a list of sites you can rely upon: http://theactorsenterprise.blogspot.com/2009/02/reputable-casting-and-audition-websites.html. Hope this helps!
