WGN’s ‘Outsiders‘ is preparing to film in the Pittsburgh area. The casting directors are looking for extras to play small roles in the upcoming scenes. Currently, the directors require men and women from different ethnicities. They are also looking for extras to work as prisoners. Men and women are required for scenes scheduled on June 24 and June 27, whereas extras for prisoners are required for scenes scheduled on July 01, July 05, and July 12.


‘Outsiders’ has already created a lot of sensation among WGN’s fans. Peter Mattei, the award winning writer has scripted the TV series. Mattei is also co-producing the series alongside Paul Giametti, Peter Tolan, and Michael Wimer.

The commercial producers include Tribune Studios and Sony Pictures TV. The TV series is filmed in Pennsylvania but it is a story of a family living in the mountains of Kentucky. Farrells, the family, has their own sets of rules. They have been living in the mountains for around 200 years and did not change their rules through generations.  They are unaware of modern sets of laws, which is why, they cannot choose the modern ways of defending their lands. But their hopes are high!
