Casting directors are now casting talent to work on the upcoming TV Pilot “Bashir and Diallo” filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
CL Casting (The Hunger Games) recently announced on their Facebook Page that they will be team handling the extras casting for the upcoming project.
According to Deadline, HBO has given the upcoming TV pilot a green light to a half hour comedy pilot from the former Late Night with Jimmy Fallon writers and performers Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin.
“Bashir and Diallo” was written by the team and centers on two 30-year-old reporters, as they try to make it big in the growing black mecca of contemporary Atlanta, also known as as the New South.
Among the skits and bits written for Jimmey Fallon, Riddle and Salahuddin wrote while on the show was Slow Jam The News With Barack Obama. Riddle and Salahuddin, who met while attending Harvard together, are the latest writers/performers from one of Michaels’ late-night shows to get a primetime project backed by him. This also marks Michaels’ second comedy pilot at HBO. He also has People In New Jersey.
