CBS Diversity Institute and Casting have undertaken a new and unprecedented initiative to enhance access for diverse actors who are 18 years and over to the talent pool for the daytime dramas, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.
As an extension of CBS Diversity’s ongoing talent showcase initiatives, candidates will be pre-screened by the network casting department and the casting directors of these CBS daytime dramas will read actors on a regular basis.
Diverse actors who are 18 years and older can submit resumes and photos electronically every June by logging onto www.actorsaccess.com under the breakdown: CBS Daytime Diversity Initiative or submit a hard copy of a resume and photo to:
CBS Daytime Diversity Initiative
CBS Broadcast Center
4024 Radford Avenue
Studio City, CA 91604
Participation in this initiative is not a guarantee of employment, nor is the initiative intended to displace traditional avenues of access to employment opportunities to all actors, regardless of background.
The CBS Diversity Institute is a comprehensive program designed to identify and develop diversity within the writing, directing and talent communities. The CBS Diversity Institute includes the CBS Writers Mentoring Program, the CBS Directing Initiative and numerous actor workshops conducted nationwide, as well as writer workshops conducted in Los Angeles.
THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has been the #1-rated daytime drama for more than 22 years. The show is broadcast weekdays (12:30-1:30 PM, ET; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, PT) on the CBS Television Network and is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, the 2010 Daytime Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Daytime Drama, is broadcast weekdays (1:30-2:00 PM, ET; 12:30- 1:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network and is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company.
