Childhood Obesity Casting for online medical website, WebMD.

We are looking for an “extremely obese child.” The script and case will be focused around the child’s weight.

The program isn’t filming until November. For now, we’re looking for a headshot and full body shot of the child, along with the child’s age and weight.

Prefer talent to be local to Durham, NC but will fly someone in if needed.

Child/Patient: $750
Patient’s Parent(s): $500 – Mom and/or Dad – Prefer the patient’s real parents
Union status: Non-union
Run/Usage: Unlimited/Digital
Target Shoot Date: November
Audition Deadline: ASAP
Topic: Childhood obesity
Male or Female
Any ethnicity except for East Asian
6 years old
Extremely obese (at least 77lbs) but the bigger, the better for this case
Patient’s Parent(s)
Preferably real parents but the child talent is most important. If we find the perfect child talent but parents can’t or won’t be in it, we can hire talent to play the parent.
Submit: child’s name, age, photo (headshot and full length body shot), height, weight, location, parents name(s) and contact info. Email:
