'Pretty Little Liars' now casting actors and extras for ABC Family's fourth season

ABC Family Casting Pretty Little Liars Season 4

"Pretty Little Liars" fourth season starts shooting March 15, 2013.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

Horizon Scripted Television and Alloy Entertainment are set to begin production on the fourth season of ABC Family's hugely popular teen drama mystery thriller one-hour single-camera television series "Pretty Little Liars". Primetime Emmy Award nominated casting director Bonnie Zane and two-time Casting Society of America Artios Award nominee Gayle Pillsbury are casting actors for guest starring, recurring, and day player roles. Extras are being cast throughout the season. The network has ordered 24 episodes that will shoot beginning on March 15, 2013. The story is set in the fictitious town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania but shoots in Los Angeles. The first season of "Pretty Little Liars" premiered on June 8, 2010 becoming ABC Family's highest-rated series debut on record. The show airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c.

"Pretty Little Liars" follows the lives of four teenage girls - Aria Montgomery, Emily Fields, Hanna Marin, and Spencer Hastings - whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen bee, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets. At first they think it's Alison herself, but after she is found dead, the girls realize that someone else knows their secrets. Turns out that "A" is actually more than one person working in tandem against the Liars. Mona Vanderwaal was the primary A during the first two seasons, and Toby Cavanaugh was revealed to be part of A's team in season three.

Starring in "Pretty Little Liars" is Teen Choice Awards winner Troian Bellisario playing the role of Spencer Hastings, the "smart girl" of the group; Ashley Benson portrays Hanna Marin, the "It girl" of the group; Shay Mitchell plays the role of Emily Fields, the "jock girl" of the group; and four-time Teen Choice Awards winner Lucy Hale plays Aria Montgomery, the "artsy girl" of the group. All four actresses won the Young Hollywood Awards in 2011 for the category of Cast To Watch. Actress and singer Sasha Pieterse plays the role of Alison DiLaurentis, the former queen bee who was killed a year prior to the beginning of the series. Pieterse makes appearances on the show in the form of flashbacks, dreams and hallucinations.

The show is based on a series of young adult novels by Sara Shepard that are "loosely based on her experiences growing up on Philadelphia's Main Line". Twelve books have been released so far, and "Crushed," the next book in the series, has a release date of June 4, 2013 followed by "Deadly," which is scheduled to be released December 3, 2013. Two companion books, "Pretty Little Secrets" and "Ali's Pretty Little Lies" have also been released. Sara Shepard has been writing for many years, and when she was young, one of the things she wanted to be when she grew up was a soap opera star.

Aside from developing the series, the amazingly talented and beautiful I. Marlene King serves as executive producer, head writer and showrunner on "Pretty Little Liars". She also directs episodes and recently Tweeted, "Panicked when I realized I'll b directing 401 when finale airs. Hey @lisacochranpll can we get a TV on at video village?! Pretty please". Video Village is a term that refers to an area around the monitor on set where the director sits during shooting, and since so many people gather around this monitor, the term "Village" was coined. 401 refers to season 4, episode 1. The season 3 finale episode (script #324) of "Pretty Little Liars" airs on the same day that I. Marlene King will be directing the first episode of season 4, which will be a typical 15 hour day. Of course King can record it and watch the finale' after work, but it isn't the same. You have to be a director to understand and relate to how important it is to watch your work air "live". Unless of course you are Eric Stoltz (director - Glee), who once said as an actor, "I don't even own a TV". But Eric is an extreme exception to the rule, unless he changed his tune after transitioning from actor to director. Leslie Morgenstein executive produces for Alloy Entertainment. Primetime Emmy Award nominee Oliver Goldstick also executive produces. Lisa Cochran-Neilan, Joshua Bank, Bryan M. Holdman are the show's producers.
