Founder of HBC, Casting Director, Two-Time Emmy Loser, Game Show Girl
Nicknamed "Last Minute Liz," for being able to pull off the “impossible” in a short amount of time, Liz has been working in the television industry for the last decade both in New York City and Los Angeles. Starting at NBC Universal's The Maury Show, for three years Liz cast shows such as "Geek to Chic," "Little People Big Talent," and the not-so-occasional "Cheating" and "Who's Yo Baby Daddy" segments. After successfully completing the best booker's bootcamp there is, Liz seamlessly slid into producing and casting game shows.
Liz has since produced over 1,000 studio game show episodes and cast contestants for some of the most successful primetime and syndicated game shows in history. She has most recently cast over 1,200 contestants for ABC's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and 60 contestants for ABC's $100,000 Pyramid.
Liz excels at finding genuinely fun, unique, electric contestants who pop off of the screen. She sees casting through a unique lens, having been the Co-Executive Producer of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, the Senior Supervising Producer of $100,000 Pyramid and the Supervising Producer of Deal or No Deal, where she stacked and produced all contestants. She can work within a strict budget and time restraint, having successfully cast 250 of this country’s brightest trivia show contestants in 9 weeks.
From brilliant teen chefs to hometown heroes, 8-year-old whiz kids to veterans, there’s no casting challenge that Liz can’t deliver on.
When she's not scouring the globe for contestants, she's probably eating donuts and watching Richard Dawson's 70's Family Feud with her three dogs, Zoey, Nora and....BANDIT.
“Liz did a phenomenal job helping rebuild “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” from the ground up. A large part of that was the incredible job she did casting the show. She’s a huge reason the show earned an Emmy nomination this year.”
-Chris Harrison, Host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
