About the Author

Barbara Barna Abel has been helping people get on television for more than 25 years and has cast over 100 unscripted/alternative projects since launching her own talent development company in 2001.

Barbara started in entertainment as music director of her college radio station (KSPC, Claremont, CA) and making tea for powerhouse ‘80s musical acts like Culture Club and Human League as the first college intern for Virgin Records UK. After stints in music management, Barbara gained her comedy chops at APA in Los Angeles working the phones for legendary and visionary talent agent Marty Klein before merging her backgrounds in music and talent at VH1 where she ran the Talent Development department in New York for several years.

Barbara has a reputation for recognizing new and emerging talent, discovering or giving early breaks to: Adam Richman, Amy Schumer, Bert Kreischer, Carson Kressley, Chrissy Teigen, Clinton Kelly, Jake Tapper, Jeff Probst, Ted Allen, Thom Felicia and Wayne Brady…

Whether casting, media training, private coaching or leading a class, Barbara believes passionately that everyone has a unique story to tell.

Outside of the office, Barbara lives with her husband and two teenage children in Brooklyn, New York. She’s a dedicated reader, New York Rangers fan and watches a vast amount of television.
