New Disney Channel series ‘Camp’ casting call

The new Jessie spinoff series Camp is now casting series regulars to star alongside Peyton List and Skai Jackson.

Disney Channel casting director Howard Meltzer is now auditioning actors for series regular roles on the new 1/2 hour multi-camera television series Camp. The show is a spinoff series to the hugely popular live-action comedy show Jessie. The new series follows the adventures of Emma Ross and her friends as they navigate the trials and tribulations of summer camp. Disney Channel announced on February 25, 2015 that the series Jessie would end after it’s fourth season. Shortly after, Disney announced that Camp would be given a straight-to-series order.

Starring in Camp is Young Artist Awards winner Peyton List reprising her role as Emma Ross. Payton started out playing an extra in the Columbia Pictures feature film Spider-Man 2, and went on to play acting roles in films such as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, and the recently completed comedy The Outskirts. Aside from her role on Jessie, Payton List has had roles in the Disney Channel shows Austin & Ally, Good Luck Charlie, and I Didn’t Do It. Also starring in Camp is Skai Jackson as Zuri Ross, and three-time Young Artist Awards winner Karan Brar as Ravi Ross.

Two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Pamela Eells-O’Connell is executive producer and writer of Camp, and will serve as showrunner. Eells-O’Connell was also the showrunner on Jessie, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and The Suite Life on Deck. The Camp production company is It’s a Laugh Productions. Shooting on Camp will take place at Hollywood Center Studios in Los Angeles beginning on April 29, 2015.

Disney Channel ‘Camp’ Casting Call Details

The casting director for the new Disney Channel series Camp is auditioning actors to play the following series regular roles:

[FEMALE SERIES REGULAR] Any ethnicity, must be able to play 11-14 years of age. She is Zuri’s frenemy, and might have a tad bit of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Feels pressured to live up to the high expectations of her overly strict mom. MUST have strong comedy acting ability.

[MALE SERIES REGULAR 1] Any ethnicity, must be able to play 16-18 years of age. Handsome and popular, but despite his exterior image, he does hide insecurities. Loves to write songs and poems. He is a counselor at the summer camp, and sparks seem like they might fly between him and Emma (played by Peyton List). MUST have strong comedy acting ability, and singing and guitar playing would be a very big plus.

[MALE SERIES REGULAR 2] Any ethnicity, must be able to play 11-14 years of age. Very energetic, overly talkative character, and might have a tad bit of attention deficit disorder. Often tells lies, and that trait does not sit well with the other campers. MUST have strong comedy acting ability.
