Warners TV casts new exec

Rush will work closely with Jerry Bruckheimer TV

Warner Bros. TV has hired Patrick Rush as the studio’s new vice president of casting.

Rush will oversee Warner Bros. TV’s relationship with outside casting agencies, and serve as a link between the studio and producers, networks, agents and managers.

He’ll also work closely with Jerry Bruckheimer TV, which is set up at Warner Bros. TV. Together, Bruckheimer and WBTV have three new dramas on the fall sked (“E-Ring,” “Just Legal” and “Close to Home”), as well as a midseason comedy (“Modern Men”) and the returning “Without a Trace” and “Cold Case.”

Rush will report to WBTV casting senior VP Mary Buck, who said “his creative instincts and energy are welcome assets.”

Rush previously ran his own label, Patrick Rush Casting, where he helped cast six Warner Bros. TV pilots: “The OC,” “Everwood,” “Jack & Bobby,” “The Mountain,” “My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star” and, most recently, “Supernatural.”

At WBTV, he’ll continue to handle casting on “The OC.”

Rush’s credits also include serving as a partner at Rush/Klein Casting and working at Liberman/Hirschfeld Casting; he’s handled shows such as “Dawson’s Creek” and “Party of Five.” He also won a Casting Society of America Atrios award for casting CBS movie “Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.”
