She will continue to report to Jeff Frost, Chris Parnell and Jason Clodfelter on U.S. productions, and will also report to Wayne Garvie for international.

“For 15 years, Dawn has been a fierce advocate for talent at SPT,” Hopkins said in an internal memo (you can read it in full below). “She has led the casting of some of our most successful series including Breaking BadOutlanderThe Goldbergs and this year’s most watched new drama, The Good Doctor, where she was instrumental in casting Freddie Highmore… Dawn has also championed diversity in casting on shows such as S.W.A.T.One Day at a TimeAlex, Inc. and others.”

Steinberg was instrumental in the casting of Lizzy Caplan in Masters of Sex, Norbert Leo Butz and Ben Mendelsohn in Bloodline, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad as well as Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan in Outlander. Most recently, she oversaw casting on SPT’s upcoming YouTube Red series, Cobra Kai.

Steinberg joined SPT in July 2003 as SVP, talent and casting. Prior to that, Steinberg served as a casting consultant for NBC Studios, assembling the casts for BoomtownLas Vegas and Happy Family. From 1998-2000, Steinberg was SVP, talent and casting, at Artists Television Group, supervising casting on such series as The Street, Madigan Men, The Fighting Fitzgeralds and Grosse Pointe. Before joining ATG, she served as SVP, casting, for Big Ticket Productions, casting the series pilot for UPN’s Moesha and discovering Mo’Nique, star of the comedy series The Parkers. Steinberg began her career in New York City, casting off-Broadway theatrical productions and operating a theater company called The West Bank Cafe with Lewis Black before moving to Los Angeles in 1991 and working as an independent casting director in both motion pictures and television.

Steinberg participates in Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Reverse Mentor program.
