SAMMI MENDENHALL CASTING
From unscripted to scripted, babies to Boomers, locally and nationally, we are obsessed with finding and telling the stories of real people, as well as casting actors (union and non-union) for virtually any project in need of talent. We are story producers, casting pros, and editors who know the art of the deep dive and we always deliver on time!
BEHIND THE SCENES
Sammi Mendenhall, an Emmy Award-winning producer, was that kid who wrote/produced neighborhood plays; and even then, she was a perfectionist at casting the right person for the right role ... she also liked to watch the news. So, it was no surprise that after graduating with a BA in Journalism from The Ohio State University, she would start her career as a writer/producer in news.
After working in local news in Atlanta, GA (WSB-TV); Richmond, VA (WRIC-TV); and Seattle, WA (KING-TV & KONG-TV), and with two Emmy nominations under her belt, and her creative skills in tow, Sammi moved to Los Angeles, and later NYC, where she parlayed her experience of working with all types of news talent and interviewing all types of people (politicians to prisoners) into casting unscripted and scripted projects.
With her years of news and entertainment experience, Sammi approaches the casting process with a firm understanding of the creative process and knows how to find the story behind the story
When Sammi isn't casting, she's writing, producing, developing, and pitching under the umbrella of Sammi Mendenhall Creative, Inc.
