MTV recently shook up its West Coast casting department. The music channel, which has steadily expanded its programing, added a new casting director and lost one senior staffer to a rival network.
Blyth Nailling, who had been an independent casting director, signed on at MTV as the new director of talent and casting, overseeing casting for the channel’s scripted and reality programing. Prior to joining MTV, Nailling was a co-casting director at Marc Hirschfeld Casting where she had extensive experience casting network comedies. She worked on CW’s “One Tree Hill” and ABC’s “Scrubs” and “Cougar Town” among others.
