Richard Scudder announces an open casting call to models for the production of the first three episodes of his new high fashion and photography television series

Los Angeles, CA, October 22, 2009 --( Richard Scudder, known in Hollywood for his vast catalog of work as a top still photographer in the motion picture and entertainment industry, today announced an open casting call to find top model talent for the production of the first three episodes of his upcoming television series, premiering on a major television network in early 2010. While details such as series title, television network and first air date for this initial thirteen episode season are not being released to the public at this time, it can be announced that Scudder’s series will involve high end fashion and photography.

“This series is going to be something that has never been done before in the national or international entertainment industry. I’m looking to cast up-and-coming models that have that world class fashion look,” said Scudder. Models who wish to be considered must have industry standard runway and swimwear measurements and be free of tattoos. To apply, models should submit current photos, comp cards and contact information to:

Richard Scudder
Attn: Television Series Casting
P.O. Box 691344
West Hollywood, CA 90069
Phone calls and emails are strongly discouraged.

Scudder is also scouting for both established clothing design collections and collections from new designers to feature on his show. He was seen at seven fashion shows throughout the past week during LA Fashion Week, viewing the spring 2010 collections from top designers such as Elizabeth Mason, and talented designers, including Mike Vensel. “The old Hollywood style on display at the Vintage Valentino show really inspired me, as did the feather touches on Mike Vensel’s work,” said Scudder. “I’ll be working to capture a completely different look in each episode, giving both talented and established couture designers opportunities to shine on camera.”

With an appearance on the red carpet, Scudder was photographed entering the Vintage Valentino Benefit for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles on Thursday October 15, 2009. Scudder was also seen walking the red carpet again on Wednesday October 21, 2009 at the Kress Rooftop in Hollywood, attending the “Encore” for LA Fashion Week - an exclusive red carpet celebrity runway event featuring the launch of the "Laine by Lauren Elaine” spring 2010 collection.

In addition to high fashion, Scudder’s new series will also feature jewelry price tagged at the million dollar mark, courtesy of several world renowned jewelers.
