Open Casting Call for Cable Car Show Host

The following casting call was forwarded to Vortex Media Group and it was asked that we post it. It appears that a NY-based casting company is looking for a host for an upcoming car show for a major cable channel. If you think you have what it takes to perform the job, read on.

Show Synopsis:

Casting talent for an entertainment show featuring cars. Show will be aired on a major cable station. Looking for outgoing personalities who are witty and irreverent with excellent skills in improv and interviewing. Knowledge of cars and specs a plus, more importantly, have an interest in the role of cars in pop culture. Contacts in the auto industry a plus.

Host:

We are looking for a host; male or female age 25 – 45. Wry and mischievous! Could be an up and coming comedian, but definitely someone funny and clever who has a strong interest or background in cars (technical, historical, hobby, sales, etc). The show is unscripted and relies on the host thinking on his/her feet and interacting with the other on screen characters. Remember, general car knowledge is key.

SHOOT:

Initially we are casting for a single pilot show to be shot in August, in Los Angeles. All travel and hotel accommodations for the pilot shoot will be covered by the production company.

RATE:

Compensation to be negotiated comparable to union scale or better.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

1. Email: carshow@donnagrossmancasting.com with your headshot & resume (if you have one) and a creative cover letter stating why you’re perfect for this job.

2. Record a short, 3-5 minute VHS/mini DV tape and mail it to the address below. Pick a Car, show us the features, and tell us the impact this particular car has made on pop culture. It doesn’t have to be your car; it can be a stranger’s on the street. The funnier the better. You can improvise and make the whole thing up if you want. Let us see your personality and have fun!
