CASTiNG series is based on an original concept from beginning to end. The script was written by the four main actresses: Olimpia Melinte, Andreea Șovan, Romina Sehlanec and Ana Udroiu, and is inspired by their personal and professional lives. It all began as a crazy idea, also involving six different directors: Millo Simulov, Andrei Gheorghe, Florin Babei, Iliana Dumitrache, Roxana Andrei and Andrei Ion. Each of them had his own vision and own episode (or episodes).
In the meantime, CASTiNG series became a true family. Actor Ionuț Grama, director and producer Dan Chișu, actresses Emilia Dobrin and Dana Voicu, producer Codin Maticiuc and comedian Ionuț Bodonea are among the first season’s special guests.
‘We worked for more than half a year at this production and it wouldn’t be fair to talk only about the expectations after its launch. It’s obvious I want the series to be popular and start filming for the second season. I don’t know if this will happen, but for us, the series was already successful. That’s because our main aim was to jump into something bigger than us and get out of the comfort zone, meeting new people, new challenges, while making ourselves more visible in the industry.’ – Andrei Gheorghe, producer & director
