TV Notes: Extras needed for Quecreek movie

Friday, September 06, 2002

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

An open casting call for ABC's TV movie about the nine rescued Quecreek miners will be held tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Factory Stores, 315 Georgian Place, in Somerset (Exit 10 off the Pennsylvania Turnpike).

Pittsburgh-based Nancy Mosser Casting is looking for people age 18 and older to appear in scenes being filmed in the Somerset area between Sept. 21 and Oct. 4. Extras will portray miners, families, rescue workers and media representatives. All parts are non-speaking, no experience is needed, and all extras will be paid.

Those signing up at the open call should bring a recent snapshot of themselves and a pen to fill out a casting form. Anyone auditioning must also know his or her clothing sizes.

Extras will be notified by phone if they are chosen for filming.

Those unable to attend the open call can download casting forms online at www.mossercasting.com and send completed forms with a photo to Mosser.

WQED's top three

WQED Pittsburgh announced a realignment of the organization that brings back a former executive and gives two others new titles.

Deborah Acklin, who left WQED two years ago to become senior broadcast producer of "National Geographic Today" in Washington, returns as senior vice president of production and technology.

She'll be one part of a management triumvirate that also includes B.J. Leber, now senior vice president and station manager, and Robert Petrilli, now senior vice president, chief operating officer.

"Those are the three primary folks running the company," said WQED president George Miles.

The realignment is intended to position WQED as a multimedia company, Miles said. "We've got to be sure internally we're connecting in all parts. We're trying to position this organization so we can continue our growth in a multimedia fashion and position the people in the organization to grow within their functions and to be able to do it across functions."
