Below you find more detailed information about our Production process and the steps we take before the cameras start rolling.
In order to be considered for a Premiere television or film production, you must successfully pass two interviews with our CEO Michael Palance. First interviews take place on Saturday and second interviews take place on Sunday. We do not currently offer any auditions during the week as we dedicate that time to production. Those that successfully complete a second interview, will move into the pre-production stage and begin working with our staff to get ready for production.
Pre-production meetings take place over video call within a week of successfully completing a second interview. These meetings are to work with our writing team and other cast members in preparation for production. Our writers will get to know the cast and begin to incorporate story outlines which will result in a shooting script before production begins.
Over the many years of production, we have brought in Disney actors to work with our cast live over video call. In the past we have had Miranda May “Bunk’d” and Sofia Wylie “Andi Mack” help give tips and advice. This unique opportunity allows the cast to get up close and personal with one of today’s most influential and successful young stars in entertainment.
We groom each performer and write roles based on their personalities rather than try to find an actor to fit a role. This results in a performance that is close to the actors real life persona and makes for a more natural performance. Our productions focus on family, faith and education. The subscribers to Premiere+ reside in over 100 countries around the world.
At Premiere, we regularly host celebrity guests that perform in our shows and work with performers. They have provided inspiration for many children over the years through their interactions and performances. Celebrity guests were pleased to have the opportunity to share their thoughts about their experience with Premiere. Their comments and feedback can be read below.

“Having a blast @PremiereBird this weekend. These kids are so talented. I’m worried they’re gonna steal my job!!!” – Calum Worthy (Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally”)
“Having a great time meeting the kids at Premiere in Orlando! Thanks @premiereproduction @PremiereBird” – Trinitee Stokes (Disney Channel’s “KC Undercover”)
“It’s cool because I remember being in the same position as everyone else. I remember being in line and very nervous, asking everyone I could questions about what to do, what to say… I never saw myself as an actor until I went to Premiere, it helped me find that.” – Hayden Byerly (ABC Family’s “The Fosters”)
“I think the biggest take away for anyone attending Premiere is that they have a really good time. They meet amazing industry professionals that see what they have and help them get started.” –Phill Lewis (Disney’s “Suite Life on Deck”)
“It’s about opportunity. The most important thing you can give an actor. An opportunity to express themselves, to get in front of people to showcase their abilities and that’s what Premiere is all about. Giving kids an opportunity to shine.” –Caroline Sunshine (Disney’s “Shake It Up!”)
“I started in this business the hard way. I didn’t have this great chance to get in front of so many people. I had to go door to door and hope someone would see me. These kids have a great experience and get the chance to meet the decision makers in the business.” – Danielle Bisutti (Nickelodeon’s “True Jackson, V.P.”)
