Disney+ acquires rights to the film “The Crossover”

What’s the plot?

Disney Plus has greenlit a new series based on the book by Kwame Alexander. The Crossover will be an entertaining and gritty coming-of-age story about two teens who are struggling with their future as basketball prodigies in America, while also discovering what it means to be family members after being raised fatherless for years. 

When can we watch it?

It was announced in January 2022 that LeBron James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment would be part of the filming. Daveed Diggs, who voices Rocket on Fox's animated series "Bob’s Burgers," was chosen to narrate the new show and we can expect the release sometime within 2023!

Who is the cast?

In the new series, Josh Bell stars as a young man who becomes addicted to basketball. He is joined by an all-star cast including Amir O’Neil (JB), Derek Luke (Chuck), and Sabrina Revelle (Crystal). The show will follow their high school journey of love interests which includes Skyla I'Lece (Alex), Deaja Monique Cruz (Maya), Trevorsh Bush (Vondie).

Casting Call Tips

When you're invited to a casting call, remember to bring along your headshot and resume. The casting director will likely have a copy of your headshot and resume on hand, but it's always good to have an extra copy just in case.

You should also be prepared to read from the script or sides (the portion of the script that pertains to your audition). If you're asked to do a cold reading, which means reading from the script without any prior rehearsal, take a deep breath and give it your best shot.

Casting calls can be nerve-wracking, but try to relax and have fun with it. The casting director wants to see you at your best, so just be yourself and let your personality shine through.

You deserve to get discovered. Find more jobs, networking opportunities, and resources on Project Casting.
