A new network comedy pilot and cable drama pilot have each hired casting directors, Backstage has confirmed. Actors finally have the opportunity to get paid to hang around a nightclub for the ABC pilot “Mixology,” which revolves around the lives of single patrons at a hip Manhattan bar. The pilot is set to be cast by Los Angeles-based casting director Wendy O’Brien, who is experienced in finding the right onscreen bar patrons from her work on FX’s “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” since 2005. The new single-camera comedy, from feature writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (who also wrote “The Hangover” and “The Change-Up”), follows bar goers over the course of an evening of drinking and flirting. Meanwhile, a new AMC drama pilot has a casting director attached. “Halt & Catch Fire,” from “Breaking Bad” executive producer Mark Johnson, will be cast by Sharon Bialy and Sherry Thomas (pictured) of Bialy/Thomas Casting. »
