Open casting call for the HBO Max "Gossip Girl" reboot series looking for newcomers to play the starring roles on the show

The new HBO Max "Gossip Girl" reboot series is now looking for newcomers to play the starring roles on the show, and a limited number of talent from any area can sign up to perform in self-made video auditions from scenes provided by the show's casting team. WarnerMedia's soon-to-launch streaming service HBO Max has ordered 10 hour long episodes of a reimagined version of the pop culture phenomenon that made household names of stars such as Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick.

The project hails from the original series writer and executive producer, Quantico creator Joshua Safran, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. TV and CBS Television Studios. Like the original series, the new iteration of "Gossip Girl", written by Safran, is based on the book by Cecily von Ziegesar. The logline: Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years.

Talent interested in being cast in the starring and co-starring roles in the new upcoming "Gossip Girl" series can now sign up to perform self-made video auditions from a scene provided by the show's casting team. The talent processing fee is a one-time payment of $99. After your sign up fee is submitted, you will be sent an email to respond with your photos and general information. Current cell phone photos are preferred. The general information required will be your full name, age, height, weight, any special skills or training if available, and complete contact information. Once the casting director for the new "Gossip Girl" series contacts you, they will provide a script segment for you to create a self-made audition video. You will then email that video back to the casting director, and the process will continue with a live Skype audition. There is no experience required to sign up and participate in the auditions.
