NBC casting Steinberg

Exec was in charge of studios' fall 2002 pilot season

Dawn Steinberg, who is currently casting director for NBC comedy pilot “Coupling,” has been named casting consultant for NBC Studios.

She reports to Ted Harbert, president of NBC Studios.

Steinberg is, in effect, returning to the studio, where she served as exec in charge of all studio casting for the fall 2002 pilot season.

“Dawn is not only talented but passionate about her work, and she has a sensational eye for matching talent to characters,” Harbert said. “Her contributions are critical to our efforts to find the next generation of marquee stars.”

As exec in charge of studio casting for last pilot season, Steinberg supervised casting of new NBC series “Hidden Hills” and “Boomtown,” as well as midseason entry “It’s Not About Me.”

Four of the six main roles for “Coupling,” a production of NBC Studios and Reveille Entertainment, have been set. Thesps on board are Jay Harrington, Emily Rutherfurd, Colin Ferguson and Lindsay Price.

The project is based on a British series about six thirtysomethings.

From 1998-2000 Steinberg served as senior VP of talent and casting for Artists Television Group. Prior to that she was senior VP of casting at Big Ticket Prods. Her previous work also includes casting for Off Broadway shows and independent casting for film and TV.
