Showtime’s Shameless Season 7 Casting Call in Chicago for Kids and Adults


Get cast in “Shameless” season 7.

The upcoming 2016 / 2017 season of the Showtime dramady is beginning production in the Chicagoland area and now casting local talent who would like to work as paid background actors on the show.

Oscar nominated William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum are returning for season 7 of Showtime’s “Shameless.”  Showtime announced some 7 months ago that “Shameless” will be returning for a 7th season. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, proud papa of 6 and the patriarch in a highly dysfunctional family. Unlike most families where the parent takes care of the kids, this one is flipped. Frank’s smart, independent children spend a lot of time taking care of him. In this family it’s the father spending what little money the group has… usually at the bar, though last season saw Frank embrace some sobriety. The renewal announcement came at the beginning of “Shameless” season 6 in which Fiona was given a new job… because she slept with the boss, Frank was working on being sober and Debbie was working through her teen pregnancy. But, this is the Gallagher family and things never smooth for long.
