For the last two episodes of “Mercy Street” casting directors are looking for new faces that have not worked the show.
‘Mercy Street’ is an American Civil War medical drama television series. It is created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel. The first season premiered on January 14th, 2016 and it was renewed for a second season in March. So far there have only been six episodes, but it has been well received by critics and fans are excited to see what happens in season 2. It is a very unique concept for a show, so people really appreciate the originality and historical references.
