Please note that these are extra roles for a TV series that is filming in the Pittsburgh area and they are only considering folks that are local to Pittsburgh as no travel expenses are being paid.
“The Outsiders” is about the Farrells, a family that have lived by their own laws and traditions in rural Kentucky for more than 200 years. The family lives on very rural Shay Mountain and completely off the grid and away from modern society. But their peace is now being threatened and people are trying to take their land. The family members have vowed to defend their homes in the Appalachian mountains and a battle is headed their way.
“Outsiders” is created and written by award-winning playwright Peter Mattei. The Sony Pictures TV series is being executive produced by Mattei, Peter Tolan, Michael Wimer and Paul Giamatti. Sony Pictures TV and Tribune Studios.
