Talent Systems, the software provider for casting and auditioning that connects talent and their representatives with casting directors, has acquired Staff Me Up, the leading production crew professional network with a heavy focus on unscripted productions.
Staff Me Up, led by CEO Jared Tobman, connects 350,000 crew freelancers to exclusive production jobs at more than 3,000 networks, studios and production companies. The team also developed Coded for Inclusion, which works with diversity advocacy organizations and studios, including A+E Networks, Warner Bros. Discovery, Banijay Americas and Amazon Studios, to improve inclusive hiring for historically underrepresented groups. In the coming months, Staff Me Up will expand its hiring and networking platform, which currently focuses on unscripted crew, into scripted TV and film production.
With the acquisition of Staff Me Up and the eTribez Casting Platform as announced earlier this year, Talent Systems can provide unscripted shows with all of the tools they need to fully cast and crew their productions. “These acquisitions extend the Talent Systems offerings into the reality TV vertical through both talent casting and crew staffing,” said Talent Systems Co-CEOs Alex Amin and Rafi Gordon. “We are also excited to continue to grow and support Coded for Inclusion in collaboration with the Staff Me Up team.”
