“Cast Me!” is set in Los Angeles at David Kang Casting (DK Casting), a Hollywood agency known for casting talent for clients ranging from major brands to top celebrities.
On the show, aspiring actors and actresses compete for their big break through eccentric and unusual auditions with esteemed casting directors as they vie for roles in upcoming commercials, music videos and more.
