Casting athletes for winter sports competition TV series
My name is Jacqui Skeete and I am the Casting Producer for a returning television series called All-Round Champion. I’m looking for a young, diverse, American male (12 to 15 years old) that specialize and/or is competitive in snowboarding for our upcoming season. Do you know of any? Or anyone that could help?
While we are primarily looking for an American snowboarder if you happen to know of any diverse, Canadian snowboarders I’d love to be connected to their parents. And of course if there is anyone else you think could help feel free to pass along my contact information
We’re on a tight deadline so appreciate any help you’re able to give!
The show will be filming roughly from January 9 to March 11 2020 (give or take a few days).
Here’s some background information on All-Round Champion:
We have completed filming our very first season of the series, which will premiere in early 2020 on BYUtv in the US, TVO and Knowledge Network in Canada and streamed worldwide. The first season featured summer sports, and now we are in the process of casting for season two, which will feature winter sports.
All-Round Champion is a reality sports competition series that features 10 of the best youth athletes from 10 different sports across North America between the ages of 12-15. These elite athletes will push themselves beyond their personal limits to compete in the ultimate sports competition. But there’s a catch… they won’t be competing in their own sport – they’ll be competing in each others! Each week the athletes will learn, train and master a new sport. The athlete whose sport is featured that week becomes the coach, trainer and mentor to the other athletes and must get them competition ready in only 3 days! Points will be awarded for performance and character. The athlete with the most points at the end of the series, will be crowned the All-Round Champion.
The series also features a once in a lifetime opportunity for the athletes to work and train beside world famous athletes and Olympians in each episode. Season 1 featured Olympic gold medalist Laura Wilkinson, the third most decorated gymnast in World Championship history Alicia Sacramone Quinn, Winston Cup Champion Rusty Wallace, US Open Champion Brittany Lang, X-Games Legend CB Burnside and the greatest wakeboarder of all-time Darin Shapiro.
