In a bid to help out students whose final year of training and customary year-end activities have come to a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Warner Bros. Television has launched a casting initiative to connect with them.

According to an exclusive report in Deadline, through this casting initiative, WBTV is sending out flyers to approximately “400 undergraduate, graduate, and conservatory programs across the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK inviting students to submit headshots, resumes and brief, written introductions”.

Once that is done, the casting department will review all submissions and a select group of said students will be asked to send in their audition tapes and meet with casting execs from WBTV.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), Howard University, Juilliard, Appalachian State University, Canada College of Performing Arts, The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Univ. of Arkansas Little Rock, Yale School of Drama, and West Texas A&M University are a few universities that are included in the 400 universities.
