Baby Casting and Extras in Chicago for NBC’s “Chicago Med” Series

By | July 11, 2016

NBC’s addition to the “Chicago Fire” family of TV shows, “Chicago Med” is now casting babies and extras in Chicago

Chicago Med” is back in production and about to film the season opener.  Casting directors with Chicago’s 4 Star Casting are looking for babies, under 9 lbs, of all ethnicities.  The show needs babies that look like newborns to work one or two days later this month. There is also a casting call out for ladies in their 20’s to play med students in the first episode of the new season and possibly future episodes as well.  The show starts production on the 20th. See below for the details.

Chicago Med  is created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. The show is a spin-off of NBC’s popular drama series “Chicago Fire” (which is also filming right now).  The “Chicago” series of shows, “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” and “Chicago Med”  film in Chicago at approximately the same time. The three shows tie together with cross-over episodes that feature characters of the different shows working together. Last season, the 3 Chicago shows did a 4 way cross-over with Dick Wolf’s other police drama, “Law and Order: SVU.”

According to NBC, the  Chicago-centric series focuses on the city’s most explosive hospital and its staff of doctors and nurses — a world first glimpsed in the “I Am the Apocalypse” episode of “Chicago Fire.” Relationships are forged in the chaos of the emergency room, where the team tackles cases inspired by topical events. Familiar faces from the city’s police (“Chicago P.D.”) and fire departments make appearances as the rich world continues to grow.
