producers find casts on Craigslist; SciFi already casting for Mad Mad House 2.
No more sweaty lines in major metropolitan areas nor negotiating with unknown actors’ agents. The hot new place for some reality TV show producers to find cast members is online, on Craigslist. A producer for TLC’s Date Patrol tells the New York Post, “We post in a lot of different outlets for recruitment, but Craigslist is one of our most successful avenues of finding people for our show.” SciFi is using Craigslist to cast for a second season of Mad Mad House; the first season will debut in March. Other current casting notices: TLC is searching for people who are moving for a new series (and earlier looked for “a hot, masculine Carpenter”); NBC wants “a loving couple that have been exclusive to one another for 6 months or more”; and an unnamed network today needs a “[b]eautiful caucasian woman with great legs” who is “[a] party girl who likes to drink and gamble, who enjoys sports and would love to sit front and center at a Knicks basketball game.”
