Amazon is filming a new pilot called “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”. A new casting call for the series has been released and casting directors want you to work on the show! According to Deadline, Michael Zegen and Rachel Brosnahan are set to star in the Amazon pilot. Set in the 1950s, the project centers on Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Brosnahan), who had her life mapped out for herself: go to college, find a husband, have 2.5 kids and throw the best Yom Kippur dinners in her elegant Manhattan apartment. But when her life takes an unexpected turn, Midge will have to decide quickly what else she’s good at. Going from uptown housewife to a stand-up comic in a grungy club in the Village is an appalling choice to everyone but Midge.
Grant Wilfley Casting is looking for union and non union men and women to portray 1950’s beatnik types. They are open to models and actors of all ethnicities who are ages 18 to 90. Filming dates are still being determined, but will be sometime between September 27th and October 14th. Because the show is filming in New York City, they are seeking people local to the tri state area.
