Amazon Studios will be bringing it’s own original programming to their streaming subscribers. The network has ordered the pilot “Hysteria” which stars Mena Suvari. The show will begin production in the Austin Texas area this June and is in need of many paid TV show extras.

Hysteria” is about a mysterious outbreak that seems to only be affecting high school girls. “Hysteria” stars Mena Suvari (Chicago Fire) as a doctor, a neurologist/psychiatrist. She begins an investigation of a recent unexplained outbreak in Austin Texas, which is also her hometown. The outbreak is affecting high school girls and is somehow linked to technology. This is not the first time something like this may have happened in Austin, 25 years ago her brother was sent to prison over a similar event and she now wants to not only get to the bottom of what is causing the outbreak and “Hysteria” but also wants to finally exonerate her brother. Grey’s Anatomy star, T.R. Knight will play the brother who may somehow hold the key to figuring out what exactly is going on.

The project is looking for Austin area adults that would like to participate in a TV show. You must be a Texas resident with valid Texas ID to be considered for these roles.
