Online Open Call

We are casting paid background actors, in a series for a major streaming network, with an Oscar-winning director, (for best adaptation of Moonlight) and based upon the 2016 Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist's book, by author Colson Whitehead.

"The series is based on an alternate history of Cora and Caesar who make a bid for their freedom by following the underground railroad to a series of safe houses and secret routes" we are seeking paid background especially African American men and women who can waltz and musicians who can play fiddles, and men and woman who would know and perform African dance and retell the story of enslaved people in an alternate vision."

We would encourage everyone to invest their time in this amazing piece of storytelling, and we are looking for people of all ages, children included, and all ethnicities that can work with their own raw emotions, side by side with our main cast.

Currently we are putting together a fitting schedule to our shooting schedule we are scheduled to fit (now through September) and shoot (August-October) various scenes and episodes in Savannah .

Please share and encourage everyone to apply - its a period historical drama so we are looking for natural hairstyles and colors, nothing modern in looks, think “The Birth of A Nation” as a reference.
