stranger-smlStranger Things on Netflix has quickly become one of the most talked about smash hits of the summer. From the Cult of Barb, to season 2 story hints, this show is definitely enjoying a surge in support from Netflix users. Congratulations to Carmen Cuba, the series casting director, and to the entire casting team. Cast It was used throughout the first season’s casting process, covering over 70 different roles, with remote casting teams working in Chicago, Atlanta, and the east coast. Cast It allows the lead casting team in Los Angeles to collect, organize and present roles, actors, audition videos and self tapes to the production team. All of that material is stored in Cast It as an archive of material that the casting and productions teams can reference in future seasons.
