There is a casting call in 2018 for kids and teens! The New Year is looking to be a great one in the entertainment industry. If you have a child who is looking to get started in acting, landing an extra acting job is the perfect way to start. The NBC TV show “Chicago PD” has put out a kids casting call. African American and Hispanic males who are talented athletes are needed for some upcoming scenes. Producers are looking for boys who are 10 through 17 years old. All kids must have advanced level basketball skills and be on track to go pro! This is a fantastic role for any aspiring actor.
At the center of “Chicago P.D.” is Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do anything to bring criminals to justice. From multiple Emmy Award-winning Executive Producer Dick Wolf and the teams behind the hit series “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit, combating the city’s most heinous offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond”, according to NBC.
Those chosen will be featured and will receive $200.00 for the shoot. A wardrobe fitting will also take place sometime before filming. The shoot will take place on Friday, January 5th in Chicago, Illinois. If this sounds like a project your son would be perfect for, check out the info below!
