A comedy pilot for TBS is filming in North Carolina this month.
The untitled TBS project was previously called “Vacationland” and is written by Samantha Bee, “The Daily Show ‘s” correspondent and her husband, Jason Jones who also worked on “The Daily Show with John Stewart“. The new show will star Jason Jones and is inspired by the couples own family road trip experiences. According to Deadline, Jones plays Nate, described as “a hopeful dad who hops in the car with his wife and two young kids for a 24-hour adventure” to Key West, Florida.
The TBS series is filming the pilot in the Wilmington area and the show is looking to cast paid extras who are available to work this week in the area. Ashley Bogart Casting is now filling roles that work Wednesday and Thursday at what will be a bar / truck stop scene. The show needs people with character faces to play bar goers as well as extras to play bikers, waitresses, bartenders and a DJ.
