Disney Channel Pilot Now casting for lead and supporting roles
The Disney Channel and Disney XD have ordered a pilot for a new Disney Channel show called “Bits & Pieces”. Auditions to find the right cast for the show are being held right now.
Disney Channel sitcom fans will have a new show to look forward to in 2013!
“Bits & Pieces” is a comedy series that does something a bit different. Rather than using a traditional multi camera filming pattern. The new show will do ‘bits and pieces’, quick snippets, and a series of vignettes to tell a story that show off the stories funniest moments. This is a unique way of filming a sitcom and the show may prove to be a lot of fun.
“Bits & Pieces” is executive-produced by Andy Fickman (“The Game Plan,” “Race to Witch Mountain”) and Betsy Sullenger (“You Again”) and written by John D. Beck & Ron Hart (“Shake It Up,” “According to Jim”).
Casting for the show is under way and the show will begin filming in June of 2012. The series “Bits & Pieces” is supposed to premiere on the Disney Channel in 2013. The new show is looking for its main cast. There will be 3 boys parts and 3 girls parts. The show will also require adult actors to play the parents and extras.
Bits & Pieces is a modern day Brady Bunch, a blended family that has many comedic moments and is told from the viewpoint of a 15 year old girl, Alanna who has to adapt to her new situation of being in a much larger family with new step siblings.
About “Bits & Pieces”:
In the story, the family tree gets a whole lot bigger when high school basketball coach Pete marries the school psychologist Jodie, much to the chagrin of their four kids. Willful 15 year old, teenager Alanna recounts all the family moments through comedic vignettes, while her awkward brother Sticky and their new step siblings Crystal and Brody help fill in the bits and pieces as they begin their journey together as a new family.
The new Disney show will be produced by It’s a Laugh Productions in Los Angeles. Auditions for the show will be held in the Los Angeles area where the show will be filmed. It’s a Laugh Productions is the company that produces most of the Disney Channel and Disney XD shows.
