Paid Background Talent Wanted for Rock N’ Roll Project directed by Martin Scorsese in NYC

HBO is producing a new pilot currently using the titled “Untitled Rock N’ Roll Project”.

The pilot will be directed by Martin Scorsese and will film in the New York area.

The show has been in the works for quite some time and is finally beginning production. According to Deadline, The untitled Rock ‘n’ Roll Project is about a hard partying record exec in the late 70’s. The series is set in 1977 during the height of Disco when other music forms such as punk rock and Hip Hop were also emerging. Scorsese is working with Mick Jagger on the project who will also executive produce.

The pilot is being written by Terence Winter who also worked with Scorsese on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire“. The series will also star Juno Temple and Olivia Wilde.

The show will be set in the 70’s, so casting directors for the new HBO series are looking for extras who have a 1970’s look as well as talent that has a long haired rocker look.

Grant Wilfley Casting is seeking SAG-AFTRA and NON UNION extras for the HBO Pilot, The Untitled Rock N’ Roll Project directed by Martin Scorsese.
