Casting Grandparents and Kids for TV Commercial

Casting directors for Universal Studios Florida are casting for an upcoming commercial and looking for Orlando area grandparents (and their grand kids) willing to go on some Universal Studios rides. Heather Heinz, the CD for Universal Studios Production Group, is seeking REAL Grandparents with their actual grand kids on this one. Grand parents must have grandchildren between the ages of 6 and 17 that also live in the Orlando area and are able to appear in the commercial.

Filming will take place in the park during the month of August and will be a 1 day shoot. The specific dates are listed below. The production is looking for talent of all ethnicities that would be willing to get on some rides for the shoot (Roller coasters, Kids Coasters, & Water Rides). Talent will be filmed while on the rides. The list of rides is also below.

These are principal roles, not extras, and talent cast for the spot will be paid principal rates.

    Do you have to be a Florida resident to submit for this?

      I believe so. This requires auditions in Orlando.
