About Initiative Talent Group

Initiative Talent Group is run by Maureen Browne, Independent Casting Director (E!, Style, ABC, CBS, GSN), TV Hosting Coach and Media Trainer. Maureen offers both private and group sessions that provide valuable insight into the world of television hosting, broadcasting and media training for experts.

Maureen has coached a wide range of talent from Hollywood's hottest reality stars, Grammy award-winning musicians, top celebrity hairstylists, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, celebrity chefs, plastic surgeons and editors of the world's most exclusive magazines... She's worked with them all. She's help coach hosts on shows like E! News, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, Ready for Love and many more.

During her years as a former Casting Executive for E! Entertainment Television and the Style Network, she helped cast shows such as The Chelsea Handler Show, Chelsea Lately, The Soup, E! News, The Daily 10, Clean House, How Do I Look, Live from the Red Carpet, Fashion Police and countless other shows. She traveled the country in search of reporters, hosts, comedians and experts, sat in hundreds of auditions and viewed thousands of talent reels. (She couldn't believe they paid her to do that!)

Maureen took her passion of working with talent further... by coaching and consulting, while doing freelance casting. She has since cast hits like Baggage and The Newlywed Game as well as pilots for ABC, CBS and others through Nigel Lythgoe Productions.
