Production Description

Seeking culturally and ethnically diverse talent and actors with disabilities for consideration for the 29th annual ABC Talent Showcase. Selected participants will perform for casting directors, talent agents, managers and other industry professionals who view a series of live, one-act vignettes performed by the actors. In addition, the selected showcase actors are awarded a one year mentorship with executives from the NY Casting Department. As part of the mentorship, the showcase actors will be offered on-camera workshops specifically for them to further hone their craft and auditioning skills. Talent will also have access to various ABC and ABC Studios executives. Former participants include Chadwick Boseman ("42"), Laz Alonzo ("Deception"), Jesse Williams ("Grey’s Anatomy"), Dania Ramirez ("Devious Maids"), Jorge Garcia ("Lost"), Carrie Ann Inaba ("Dancing with the Stars"), Gina Rodriguez ("Filly Brown"), and Ali Stroker ("The Glee Project"). Network states: "ABC's Talent Showcase has established an industry standard in creating opportunities for talent, with participants being given the chance to audition for a variety of ABC (and other networks') pilots and ongoing programming. ABC has a long-standing commitment to promoting diversity in the entertainment industry through a variety of projects administered by its Talent Development & Casting departments.
