The Scream TV series is filming in Baton Rouge.
Central casting has issued a new casting call for extras. The show is looking for some background actors to fill a few roles in upcoming scenes. The Scream TV series currently called “Hush” is seeking to cast some talent to play Lakewood locals as well as someone to play the coroner.
The new show starts with a viral video that somehow leads to murder…. “What starts as a YouTube video going viral, soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood and serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town’s troubled past.” MTV announced plans for the new Scream series around last Halloween over twitter.
The Scream series will star Willa Fitzgerald (“Alpha House,” “Royal Pains”), Amy Forsyth (“Torment,” “Reign”), John Karna, Carlson Young (“Key and Peele,” “The Kroll Show”) and Amadeus Serafini. The series pilot is directed by Jamie Travis (MTV’s “Faking It”). Wes Craven, the film series creator, is one of the executive producers on the show.
