Disney is in production on a new project called “Shadows” and if you live in the NOLA area, you have a chance to be cast in the new Disney show.

Season 1 will be filming for around 3 months in the area and is currently looking for area locals who would like to work as paid background actors this fall.
According to a story on NOLA.com, a local news site, “Cloak and Dagger,” is based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name, about two teens, Ty Johnson and Tandy Bowen. In the story, the 2 teens meet each other in New York after they find themselves kidnapped by a mad scientist. The two teens escape from the scientist, after he injected them with a mysterious drug. They realize that they are developing special powers.
The pair make use of their new found powers to become superheroes. Ty Johnson AKA Cloak, inherits teleportation powers while Tandy Bowen becomes Dagger, for her ability to create daggers made of light. The 2 characters are part of the Marvel Universe and made were previously introduced in other Marvel movies with appearances in the “X-men“, “Spider-Man” and “Avengers” franchises.
