“Gunslingers” will be coming back for a second season and is now in production in the NM area.
The show which films around the Santa Fe, NM area airs on the American Heroes Channel and documents the old west cowboys whose names we have all grown up with. The show’s casting directors at Midthunder Casting are seeking to fill 2 roles… A Caucasian singer in her 20’s to 30’s to play Dora Hall, a performer who lived during the late 1800’s and the role of a teen boy named Jim Miller who was a young outlay. The teen boy role is seeking an adult actor, 18+ who looks younger. Ideally, they are seeking an actor in his early 20’s who still looks like he is in his late teens.
“Gunslingers” brings to the small screen the infamous names of the Wild West. The six-part historical docudrama “Gunslingers” strives to expose the actual, often little-known adventures of the period’s iconic characters, and how their fearless pursuit of freedom and profit still resonate. Stories of Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok, John Wesley Hardin and Tom Horn proceed via cinematic re-enactments, juxtaposed with commentary by, among others, “Deadwood” creator David Milch, Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell of True West magazine, and actor Kurt Russell, who played Wyatt in 1993?s “Tombstone.”
Gunslingers, Season 2 is a non-union miniseries. The show is directed by Chris Cassel and produced by Castle Pictures and Paul O’Brien.
