AMC is preparing it’s next high profile dramatic series to follow in the tradition of the network’s mega-hits The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad and casting calls are being held now. Halt & Catch Fire comes from a creative team that includes two producers from the legendary Breaking Bad and will feature one of the strongest casts of the new TV year. This sure to be hit drama is set to begin casting soon and interested actors can submit themselves today for a host of exciting roles.
Halt & Catch Fire (a term for a computing code specifically designed to destroy a machine’s CPU) will be set in the early 1980’s and tell the story of the heady first days of the personal computing boom. Told through the eyes of an idea man, a groundbreaking engineer and young prodigy, this event series will follow the personal and professional lives of the men and women that changed the world with innovations that contradicted everything that the country’s big corporations believed in. This fascinating tale will feature an incredible up and coming cast that includes the immense talents of 2-time Golden Globe nominee Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Pushing Daisies, Lincoln), Independent Spirit Award winner Scoot McNairy (12 Years a Slave, Promised Land, Killing Them Softly), Screen Actors Guild Award winner Kerry Bishé (Argo, Scrubs, The Fitzgerald Family Christmas), Mackenzie Davis (That Awkward Moment, I Just Want My Pants Back, Smashed), and veteran character actor Toby Huss (King of the Hill, Cowboys & Aliens, 42). More outstanding roles of all sizes are still available for aspiring performers of all ages and applications are being accepted now.
