The Producer’s Session

Gary will “cast” some roles of an episodic one hour drama series in the recreation of a typical Producer’s casting session. He will read six actors for each role as the session is taped. Like a director would do, Gary will do the directing in the room. Before and after the actor leaves the audition you can hear what is talked about and how they felt about the actor reading.

Often in episodic TV, a couple of the roles are dependent of one another, i.e. wife and her husband. Gary talks about how this affects who reads and how the producers finally make their choice.
