AMC’s new TV series is beginning production and now casting background actors.


Extras casting directors for the upcoming AMC series are now looking to cast paid extras that are available to work on set between June and September 2016. The show is looking for locals that have a flexible schedule and able to work 1 or more days during the work week (Monday through Friday.)

The show is still accepting submissions. The series is set in the old west so knowing how to ride a horse may be a plus.  AMC is a well known cable television network that is known for its extraordinary television shows.  Shows like ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Hell on Wheels’ aired on AMC and generated millions of viewers each week.  ‘Breaking Bad’ is thought of as being one of the best television shows ever made.
