Why Being Cast in an Amazon Pilot Could Boost Your Career

The unconventional development process pioneered by Amazon Studios extends to the deals it offers actors, according to casting director Alyssa Weisberg. The streaming service doesn’t offer holding deals to its performers the way TV networks have traditionally done with actors that network executives think could work in a variety of projects. But Weisberg, who cast Amazon’s new comedy series “Betas” and has consulted for the company on other projects, said that enhances the casting process. “That is one of the things that is nice about Amazon at the moment, is that we don’t have to put actors in holding deals into roles that they might not be right for,” she told Backstage. In October, Amazon gave the greenlight to three pilots: “Mozart in the Jungle,” which was written by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Alex Timbers; “The Outlaws,” by screenwriters Jeremy Garelick and Jon Weinbach; and “Transparent,

Natalie Zea Takes Break From Gloomy Dramas Amazon Pilot The Outlaws

  • Boomtron
The beautiful and feisty Natalie Zea, known for her roles in Justified and The Following, is changing gears a tad and steering away from the dramas she’s been a large part of these last few years. Instead, the actress has attached herself to a new comedy pilot for Amazon called Outlaws. Seeing as it’s just a pilot, this doesn’t mean Zea won’t still be a part of The Following’s second season; she’s just covering all her bases to make sure she still has a job. And you know, I think a comedy would go well for her after how bleak The Following was for her character.
