Pilot Season Program 

February 2nd to 12th 2023

WHAT IS PILOT SEASON?

Pilot season is between January and April when the studios create samples of potential new shows. During the beginning of pilot season, major networks purchase pilot scripts. The shows that get greenlit, start production in mid year.

WHAT IS EPISODIC SEASON?

Episodic season is the time of year when the episodes of many TV shows are being cast. With TV pilots now sold and the leading actors hired, the casting of recurring roles, guest stars and co-stars begins. This is when working actors have a chance to get really busy.

THE HOLLYWOOD INITIATIVE

Decades of resources have been gathered to offer actors and entertainers a carefully constructed intensive networking week, exposing actors through personal introductions to some of the leading coaches, casting directors, agents, managers, dialect coaches, headshot photographers, production companies and immigration lawyer.

The Hollywood Initiative will help you take the initiative in your career and guide you with the tools and knowledge of what it takes to hopefully succeed in the entertainment industry.
