Disney Channel casting directors send out casting calls for ‘Evermoor’

Disney auditions are now taking place in both the United States and United Kingdom for the mystery-adventure miniseries Evermoor.

The major production company Lime Pictures is now in pre-production on this exciting four-part live-action mini series which will be punctuated with comedy and premiere on the Disney Channel in more than 160 countries worldwide starting this fall, 2014. Disney Channel casting directors in Los Angeles and London are holding auditions for kids 11-16 for starring and co-starring roles. Shooting will take place in Cheshire & Merseyside, UK starting on April 14th. All extras will be hired in the UK.

Evermoor centers on All-American budding writer Tara Baily, who moves to the sleepy village of Evermoor, England with her famous novelist mother and her British step siblings, Seb and Bella, and younger “force of nature” brother Jake. Tara thinks her life is officially over after the move, however it’s only just beginning – for in their spooky new house on the moors there lies a tapestry that tells the future. The Tapestry is tended to by a sinister sewing circle called the Everines. And they are determined to get rid of the “newcomers” at any cost. The mystery is just beginning.

Tim Compton and Diane Whitley are creators of Evermoor. Compton will executive produce with BAFTA Awards nominee Rebecca Hodgson. Bede Blake wrote the teleplay, and will also produce with Diane Whitley. The Walt Disney Company announced that Evermoor will be the largest-scale United Kingdom production to ever air on Disney Channel worldwide. Evermoor will begin as a four-part series that will be shown in some markets as a single feature film.
