“We have worked with The Talent on Red Nose Day - they are brilliant at their job and work very hard - but the thing I love most about them is how friendly & human & normal & fun they are to work with. Casting is complicated, often frustrating, often tense - but with The Talent you still feel it’s an adventure, you laugh at the downs and celebrate the ups - you’re in it together. They’re a lovely group of people.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with The Talent for all 5 seasons of casting celebrity players for “The $100,000 Pyramid.” They not only have solid relationships to book great celebrity guests, but they think like producers, discerning who will be instinctual game players and bring fun to the show.”

“We set out to make one of the most ambitious projects on the most ridiculous timeframes of our career. Not only did The Talent deliver, but they exceeded expectations every step of the way. From idea inception to the shoot date, The Talent saved the show at every turn. We’ve worked with many folks in the talent world, but we haven’t worked with better and likely never will. Because we won’t work with anyone else.”
