Acting Skills and Training

Acting Style Based On The Network

So I have been attending some classes and one new key point that I kind of learned was that each TV network has a distinct style of acting where you as the performer can use this information to determine how you should portray a character. For example, if you are auditioning for a role on something that is on the Fox Network then more than likely you should play the characters in a more intense/urgent way as opposed to say something on CBC where it will be more slow paced.

The reason kind of makes sense as each network is targeting a specific demographic and they want to capture the attention of people who are flipping through the channels. That is really good to know when it comes to auditioning I think as many times people struggle to figure out if they should read something very calm or frantic.
