Disney live-action series pilot Austin & Ally holding auditions for series regulars


It’s a Laugh Productions is currently in pre-production on a brand new teen sitcom pilot for Disney Channel titled “Austin & Ally”. The show centers around two young teens with very different personalities who both have musical ambitions, and end up with a unique relationship between them.

The show will be a filmized videotape multi-camera live-action teen sitcom. Filmizing is a process that makes video productions seem to have been shot on film. Several Disney Channel and Disney XD sitcoms are shot using filmized videotape, including “Sonny with a Chance,” “Shake It Up,” “Good Luck Charlie,” and the upcoming “Wasabi Warriors” among others.

The “Austin & Ally” pilot, in consideration for a Disney Channel series to premiere later this year, was created and executive-produced by Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, whose credits include “Good Burger,” “Keenan & Kel,” Disney Channel’s “Sonny With A Chance” and “JONAS.”

Shooting on “Austin & Ally” begins mid-February, 2011. The series is under AFTRA contract and will be shot in Los Angeles at Hollywood Center Studios. This casting call has gone out nationally, and also to Vancouver and Toronto. Actors who are interested in working on the show should have their agents or managers submit them for this project. Actors who do not have an agent should follow the strict submission protocol below.

Story:

The multi-camera comedy follows the unlikely partnership between two polar opposites — Austin, an extroverted musician/singer and Ally, a brilliant but shy songwriter — and their two best friends, Trish and Dex. Unbeknownst to Ally, Austin and Dex “appropriate” one of her songs, record it, create a video and posts it on the internet, after which it and Austin become a local sensation. When Trish convinces Ally to tell the world she wrote the song, Austin begs her to write another hit for him. Instead, the two combine their talents to create a true musical tour-de-force.
