The pilot for the show is now filming in Austin Texas and there is a call out for extras who are available in AUSTIN this coming Monday.

The current need for the show is Men & Women of all ethnicities, 18 yrs and up.

Hysteria” is one of the many new shows that Amazon Studios is working on for their streaming lineup. The show is set in Austin Texas and is about a doctor, played by Mena Suvari, who goes back to her hometown of Austin to investigate a mysterious outbreak that seems to be localized to teenage girls. She is closer connected to the outbreak than you may think. Many years ago her brother was accused of a similar event and circumstantially sentenced to prison.

The doctor is now determined to get to the bottom of what is causing the outbreak and “Hysteria”. She sees a chance to finally exonerate her brother. The doctor’s brother will be played by Grey’s Anatomy star, T.R. Knight. Somehow, he may hold the key to the recent events.
