Casting Call for New Cable Network Show: “Were You Born Into the Wrong Race?” Pitman Casting and Screaming Flea Productions Announce Nationwide Search

Burbank, CA – Veteran television casting director Jacqui Pitman is a true powerhouse in the reality TV world when it comes to finding the right talent for some of TV’s hottest shows. Most recently, her agency, Pitman Casting Inc., has been selected by Screaming Flea Productions, the producers of the critically acclaimed television series “Hoarders,” to conduct a nationwide casting search for a new groundbreaking television series which asks “Were you born into the wrong race?” Pitman is in search of people who genuinely feel they were born into the wrong racial group. Selected parties, who truly believe they have been misidentified racially, will appear on the thought provoking series airing on a major cable network. Screaming Flea Productions, one of the country’s leading producers of non-fiction programming, will produce the series.

The casting call, which is open to all nationalities, is a particularly sensitive one in light of recent current events. Both Rachel Dolezal, the former president of a local NAACP chapter and Shaun King, a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, have instigated far reaching conversation and made mainstream news headlines with unresolved issues concerning racial ambiguity. Both parties have been accused of masquerading as African American.

Interested persons of all races, who are experiencing a racial identity crisis, should apply by Friday, September 25, 2015 at https://pitmancastinginc.formstack.com/forms/race_project or call 818-666-3606 for more details.

“The conversation of race has become an increasingly hot topic in the US and abroad,” asserts Pitman. “With the outing of Rachel Dolezal, more and more people have come forward with claims that they too are experiencing a similar kind of racial identity phenomenon. It is our hope that this project will give a face and a greater understanding to those who feel like they were born in the wrong skin and until now have been too afraid to admit it. Our intention is that the show will garner a better acceptance of people who feel unable to live an authentic life as who they believe they really are, despite what society might dictate.”
