Croatian Comedians needed for American TV
To whom it may concern:
I am a New York-based producer doing research for a project/series for American television, and we are looking to cast a comedian from Eastern Europe to play an immigrant moving to America and living in New York.
The project is a comedy that will be in-part a reality show, so it requires improv ability. We are looking for a male, mid-to-late 20s to mid-to-late 40s, who has some English speaking ability, and while famous in their home country are unknown in the United States.
I am looking for the top comedians in Eastern European countries, the most famous and the most popular, and would love it if you might have some names or could direct me to someone who might help. They might have done popular movies which then we could hopeful get a hold of to see if they are right for the part.
They can be a little eccentric, like Roberto Benigni - this is a comedy, and they will be put in real-life situation in the struggle of the first few months living in New York.
Any names across Eastern Europe would be appropriate as well, should you have any recommendations.
If you have the names, emails/telephone numbers of the top acting agencies as well, or can forward this email, that would be great too.
Foglight Entertainment would also produce - they have the upcoming series "Ink'd" on A&E Television next year.
Thanks for your assistance.
