Are you ready to make your mark on network TV?

The Los Angeles-based Doron Ofir Casting is helping Berlanti Television (”;Brothers and Sisters,”; “;Dirty Sexy Money,”; “;Eli Stone”;) and 25/7 Productions (”;The Biggest Loser”;) with a search for a group of friends, between 25 to 40 and living on Oahu, to star in a semiscripted docu-series.

“;Oahu Nights”; is the working title, and the office is accepting audition submissions on the Web site http://www.OahuNightsCasting.com. Casting teams will be in Waikiki from Nov. 4 through 24, holding auditions and scouring the island for what the office is calling “;sexy, interesting and outspoken personalities.”;

“;This series will capture the heart, hurt, love and laughter of a group living in Oahu whose life drama was meant for the screen,”; said casting director Ofir in a press release. For more information, go to www.doronofircasting.com .
