CBS has recently launched the “CBS Drama Diversity Casting Initiative, a program that will seek to find diverse new talent from across the country.”  After much condemnation regarding the lack of representation for minority and women actors, the television station is looking to improve upon its weakness.

This is a great step in the right direction and hopefully this is not just a one year idea.

Actors interested in submitting for the casting initiative must be over age 18 and submit monologues through the program’s website until October 28.
