What top TV Executives are saying about Full Speed Ahead

Casting? Call Austin James! We had to re-launch a series after having gone down completely in casting….and we were lucky to have FSA Entertainment come to the table with ideas and a great team out the gate! Austin worked with us to make the budget numbers work and fulfilled our demanding casting needs, was always responsive and ultimately delivered the goods in a timely fashion. Full service, affordable and the customer is always right…that’s the feeling I’m left with after working with FSA.Karen Pinto, Senior Vice President, Production, GRB Studios (Creators/Producers of Intervention)
Austin and his team have always been able to find the impossible. When I have a needle in a haystack project, I know I can rely on Austin to dive in and find authentic, compelling characters.Rushie Perera, VP of Development, Lightbox Media
Let Austin James be your "Worry Guy" when it involves ANY KIND of casting. He and his staff at FSA Entertainment can literally find anyone, anywhere and at any time. I’ve worked with FSA numerous times over the last 20 years and there’s a reason why I always go back: he puts the same energy and commitment into any size job. Make FSA your "go to" for casting needs.Eric Waddell, Supervising Producer, "Funny You Should Ask" - Entertainment Studios (Eric and Austin have worked together on multiple projects)
I have worked with Austin for years, and he and his team at Full Speed Ahead never cease to amaze me. He delivers on time, on budget, and creatively nails it every time. If you’re looking for a great casting company, trust me, you just found them.Scott Satin, Executive Producer, "Funny You Should Ask" - Entertainment Studios (Scott and Austin have worked together on multiple projects)

FSA Entertainment consistently delivered the high volume of top quality contestants we needed. Our production schedule was very grueling so there was no margin for error.Kallissa Miller, Executive Producer, MTV
Austin James is one of our go-to guys in casting. He's smart. He's got great intuition. He gets the job done.Jeff Olde, EVP, original programming and production, E!
Austin and his team did an amazing job for us in casting a really unusual show, with fantastic real-life characters.
