You know, almost 20 years ago “being discovered” was as easy as landing at LAX, jumping in a car and driving aimlessly around Southern California running into celebrities at every corner and suddenly you’re Hollywood’s next big thing. In this day and age, we have to come up with some more creative ways to be discovered and audition, that’s why Freeform will run a one week virtual casting call to find their new talent.

What’s Happening:

  • Freeform will launch its first-ever virtual talent search next week to seek out new and up-and-coming talent, the network announced today. The search, which will run from May 1 to May 8, calls for talent from across the United States who play ages 18-25 to self-record one of four Freeform series monologues and submit their video for consideration. Talent submissions can be considered for future projects at the network.
  • The search culminates on May 8, with all submissions due by 7:00 p.m. PDT. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and must be at least 18 years-old to submit.
  • For additional information, please visit www.castittalent.com/Freeform_Search .
  • Freeform connects to audiences with bold original programming and immersive social engagement that moves the cultural conversation a little forward. As Walt Disney Television’s young adult television network, Freeform channels the force and momentum of its audience in its quest for progress with authentic, groundbreaking original series such as grown-ish, The Bold Type, Good Trouble, Siren, Motherland: Fort Salem and Everything’s Gonna Be Okay. The network also programs tentpole events such as “31 Nights of Halloween,” “Kick Off to Christmas” and “25 Days of Christmas.”

What They’re Saying:

  • Elizabeth Boykewich, senior vice president, Casting, Freeform: “At Freeform, we are always looking for up-and-coming actors who have the passion and presence that permeate the screen. During this time, we know that many actors are at home looking for new ways to be creative, so we look forward to seeing some inspired submissions from the community.”
