Get cast in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Casting lots of paid TV show extras in NYC for Amazon’s “THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL”
Casting directors with Grant Wilfley Casting in New York are seeking both union and non-union talent who can pull off a great 50’s look for upcoming scenes in the show. The Amazon series is casting people of all types and ethnicities in the 18 to 99 age range to fill a variety of paid background roles.
According to the “THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL” IMDB page, the new Amazon Studios show is set in 1950s Manhattan and is described as a 60-minute dramedy that centers on Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a sunny, energetic, sharp, Jewish girl who had her life mapped out for herself: go to college, find a husband, have kids, and throw the best Yom Kippur dinners in town. Soon enough, she finds herself exactly where she had hoped to be, living happily with her husband and two children in the Upper West Side. A woman of her time, Midge is a cheerleader wife to a man who dreams of a stand-up comedy career, but her perfect life is turned upside down when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman. Completely unprepared, Midge is left with no choice but to reevaluate what to do with her life. When she accidentally stumbles onto the stage at a comedy club, she soon discovers her own comedic skills and decides to use this newfound talent to help her rebuild a different life for herself. The series will trace the trajectory of Midge’s journey as she goes on to pursue a career as a stand up comic.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino and stars Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein and Tony Shalhoub. The Amazon pilot for the show just premiered last month on March 17th.
