disABILITY Talent Source for the ENTERTAINMENT Industry

20th Century Studios is looking for Caucasian girl 12 to 14 years old, outgoing personality, witty and gay and a superstar with wheelchair stunts.

Open to all levels of actors. If you are a parent or legal guardian please build her profile.

The site is not fully open to casting, however we are helping 20th Century Studios as we begin to open for time sensitive projects.

Also read the material below and do share with any performers with disabilities to add their profiles as site will launch soon.

What is this all about...

The False Narrative: “We can’t find talented actors with disabilities”

We're building a pipeline for talented performers with disABILITIES in the entertainment industry with connections on a scale never seen before. We should never hear a casting person say, "we couldn't find talent".
Read the case study below.

A few key items, in case you were wondering:

  • abilityE is free to performers/talent/actors.
  • The site is built for performers/talent/actors with disABILITIES.
  • Performers/talent/actors includes categories like TV, Film, comedy, speakers and music.
  • You can be union, non-union, represented or not represented.
  • Your profile can only be viewed by vetted casting and representative members
  • There is more of the site, but it is only open to adding profiles at this time.
  • We aren’t asking for any private information — we do need to ask birth date. But it won’t be public.
  • Site launch coming soon. We will email when it’s live!
A growing number of Studios, Casting Agents, Organizations, Film Festivals know about the future of inclusion with abilityE

SAG-AFTRA, Casting Society of America, Warner Brothers, Netflix, Paramount, 20th Century Studios, DreamWorks Animation Television, Lionsgate/Starz, Cinestate, Google, CBS, Bunim/Murray, EmpowerHouse, Final Draft, KMR, Focus on Ability Short Film Festival, ReelAbilities, Easterseals, RespectAbility and many more...

Case Study:

When Netflix was casting for their new series “The Healing Powers of Dude” their casting people could only find 10 actors to audition that fit the age range who authentically used a wheelchair. They came to us for help.

We accessed our platforms abilityJOBS.com and ABILITY Magazine, casting a wide net. From our efforts, we sent Netflix over 500 requests for auditions and they found exactly who they were looking for, Sophie Kim — she was cast as Amara.

The word spread, and other casting offices were asking for help — so abilityE was born to be the source to cast a wider net.
