NBC Universal and Telemundo Open Casting Call for Bilingual and Spanish Speaking Actors

This is an exiting opportunity for bilingual and Spanish speaking actors, both males and females, all ages and types. NBC Universal and Telemundo studios - NBC’s Spanish-language network, are looking to expand their talent pool for bilingual and Spanish speaking actors at this time for consideration to perform in future television productions.

At the open call will be Kendra Carter, who joined NBC Universal in May 2008 as Director of Talent Diversity Initiatives. In that role, Carter develops, produces, and supervises initiatives to promote and sustain on-camera diversity for NBC. She has previously served as a member of Nickelodeon Network's West Coast Diversity Team. She will be assisted by Tracette Hillman, who will continue working on diversity projects alongside Kendra for NBC Universal, according to Marc Hirschfeld, Executive Vice-President, Casting for NBC Universal Television Entertainment.

Also attending will be Alfredo Richard, SVP Communication & Talent Development for Telemundo. Mr. Richard oversees the network's talent development and cross promotions initiatives, as well as being responsible for directing all corporate, internal and crisis communications, as well as community affairs and programming publicity efforts for Telemundo Communications Group. He reports directly to Telemundo's President, Don Browne. Since Richard joined Telemundo, the multi-platform Group has enjoyed growing visibility among advertisers, Hispanic opinion leaders and viewers, as well as talent and the industry in general.

NBC's roster of scripted series includes critically acclaimed comedies like Emmy winners The Office, starring Steve Carell, and 30 Rock, starring Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey; award-winning dramas including the Law & Order brand, Heroes, and Chuck; daytime drama Days of Our Lives; and the Saturday-morning Qubo block of programming for kids, including the award-winning 3-D animated series Veggie Tales.

Telemundo is a U.S. Spanish-language broadcast television network committed to broadcasting unique and outstanding national and local entertainment, news, and sports programming; Telemundo reaches 93% of U.S. Hispanic viewers through 16 owned-and-operated stations, 45 broadcast affiliates, and distribution to nearly 800 cable systems in more than 210 markets.

So as you can see, this is an amazing opportunity that should be taken advantage of by actors regardless of, age, sex, and type - as long as you are a bilingual and Spanish speaking actor.
