Dark Toy Entertainment and ABC Family is producing a new one-hour scripted drama called “Bunheads”, and casting calls have gone out to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and also Canada. The producers are seeking a variety of teen girls who have strong Ballet Experience. They prefer girls who are 18 and above who can play 14 – 17 years of age, or girls under 18 who are emancipated, but it is not absolutely required. They want girls with a small-town attitude. Shooting begins mid-November in Los Angeles. The original title of this show was “Strut”.
