About Us

Desiree Mandelbaum and Natalie Terrell are two beauty school dropouts turned casting wizards who both started out as street recruiters for MTV. These native Angelinos (yes, they exist!) believe their firm roots in the community give them an edge. With a combined 25 years of industry experience casting and developing original non-scripted content, the duo is considered by their clients to be a powerful good luck charm for getting shows to series.

Getting back to their roots, Desiree and Natalie have brought casting back to the streets, creating a new web series called Tips from Strangers. Not only a source of unique content, TFS is a new tool to develop a network of real people to use in film, tv and commercial. With storytelling at its heart, Wyldside delivers solid cast and content across platforms.
