Casting Call

Top Pet Model, directed by Stephen Davidson and Vithiya Murugadas
Top Pet Model is a loose parody of shows like Top Model and Drag Race, but starring your pets! You’ll also be on camera, co-competing. Any type of pet is eligible, and can compete in a way that’s accessible for them (and you). Costumes are allowed but not required, you know what’s best for your pet.
Each week will have a theme, which will be announced at the end of the week before. Contestants will have the whole week to do a photo or video challenge with their pet, and there will be a live competition during the show. We’ll take audience votes during the show, and the pets with the fewest votes will get one last chance to prove themselves before the judges make the final call on that week’s elimination.

Auditions will be held the evening of Jan 22. The show will run from Feb 5 for 8 weeks, with a rehearsal on Jan 29. Call time is 730pm GMT for an 8pm show. This is an elimination competition, so your commitment will be anything from 2-9 weeks depending on how well you do!
Applications will close on Sunday Jan 17 at midnight. If you’ve got any questions or concerns, please pop us an email at or
We are committed to inclusion and will guarantee an audition spot to any applicant who self-identifies as under-represented in improv. You can read our full inclusion statement here:
This show is unpaid, as there is no income stream, but we’ll have lots of fun!
