Fox TV taps cast consultant

Studio signs Slater/Brooksbank

Fox TV Studios has signed Slater/Brooksbank to serve as casting consultant for the shingle.

Slater/Brooksbank principals Mary Jo Slater and Steve Brooksbank will assist FTVS on casting scripted projects, including its international co-productions.

Slater/Brooksbank has already worked with FTVS on “Defying Gravity,” its upcoming drama starring Ron Livingston, now shooting in Vancouver.

The firm also helped cast Fox TV Studios telepic “Flight 93,” which ran on A&E — and was that cabler’s most-watched program ever.

Slater and Brooksbank have earned five Emmy noms through the years; they’ve helped cast TV projects such as “The Tudors,” “The Starter Wife” and “Commander in Chief.” Their feature credits include “The Contender” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.”

The duo previously served as inhouse casting consultants for USA and NBC Universal TV.
