You tune in for the promos and press conferences. You sign on for the social media campaigns. You mark your calendars for the premieres, sequels, and revivals of TV, film, and theatre’s most-promising projects. But before new shows and movies are on your radar, they’re being planned, executed, and put into motion by production teams far and wide—the most magical part of which happens in the casting room.
