Discovery TV Show – Background Extras

Extras Casting Call for TV Show

The Discovery channel has released a casting call that is searching for models and actors. The network is now casting background extras to work on one of their series. Filming for the TV show will take place in Dallas, Texas. It is scheduled to shoot on Monday, June 12th, 2017. Men and women who are 21 to 45 years old are needed to portray fans. Hip, attractive and stylish models and actors of all ethnicities are being considered. This is not a large crowd scene so they are looking for specific types. Because they don’t know how long the scene will film, all applicants must be fully available. In-person auditions are not being held. The show’s director will be selecting talent based off their photos. This paid acting job will be compensating extras $64.00 for 8 hours of filming. If this sounds like a project you would like to work on, sign up for the TV show casting call.
