ABC Holding a National Talent Search for Undiscovered Actors


ABC is now holding online auditions for what they call “fresh voices and original faces.”

ABC Discovers is holding an online open casting call looking to discover actors across the country who are capable of bringing characters to life.  The talent competition is open to actors nationwide and have 4 categories, female drama, female comedy, male drama and male comedy.  ABC has created an online video audition process by which actors may submit to hopefully catch the eye of an ABC casting executive.

ABC has made the scripts available online which they would like actors to download and video themselves performing off the script.  Actors interested are asked to download either the drama or comedy script, create a short video that is no longer than 5 minutes in length and then upload their video audition.  They are also asking that actors start the video off with a short introduction in which they state their name, their location and answer the question “One thing I would like you to know about me is…”   Details and the script to perform may be found here.

Actors are only being allowed 1 submission per person and luckily there are about 13 days left to get that submission perfected.  Actors are able to send in their video audition for the next 2 weeks or so.  The casting call just started today and the deadline to get those video submissions in is July the 9th.  This is a competition and the winning actor will get a 1 year talent deal with ABC.
