Title: CMT’s “Nashville” Background Actors
Date: 12 September 2016 | 8:20 pm
Do you want to work on the set of the hottest country music show? The CMT series “Nashville” is now casting background actors to appear on the series. The former ABC show is looking to fill the roles of TV News Reporters, Security, Paparazzi, News Camera Operator and Fans. The scenes that are filming are very small so this is a great chance to get on camera and work with the cast and crew. Shooting will be in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, September 14th.
The show that previously aired on ABC has been picked up by CMT. “Nashville’s” singers, songwriters and superstars struggle to reconcile their public and private realities. Some will fight to climb to—or stay on—the top. Some will succumb to their own ambition. And all will learn how to survive in the wake of loss—proving that music may be at the heart of Music City, but drama always reigns. [ABC]
