Extras Casting Call in Chicago for CBS TV Show “The Red Line”

Casting Call in Chicago for Ava DuVernay show “The Red Line.”

CBS streaming series “The Red Line” is now filming new episodes and the show’s extras casting directors are looking for folks in the Chicago area that have time to make some extra cash as paid TV show extras.

According to the CBS site, the show is described as a… heart-in-your-throat drama, Red Line begins with the mistaken shooting of a black doctor at the hands of a white cop and unfolds from the perspective of each of the families connected to the tragedy.

It’s a then-and-now meets us-and-them tale about the often-personal politics of crime.

The cast includes:

  • Daniel Calder: Noah Wyle (Falling Skies, ER)
  • Tia Young: Emayatzy Corinealdi (Ballers, Hand Of God)
  • Paul Evans: Noel Fisher (The Long Road Home, Shameless)
  • Ethan Young: Howard Charles (The Musketeers)
  • Jira Calder-Brennan: Aliyah Royale (Mann & Wife)
  • Jim Evans: Michael Patrick Thornton (Private Practice)
  • Liam Bhatt: Vinny Chhibber (No Tomorrow)
  • Victoria “Vic” Renna: Elizabeth Laidlaw (Boss)

Following the lives of three vastly different Chicago families whose stories of loss and tragedy intersect in the wake of the mistaken shooting of an African-American doctor by a white cop. As the stories of the Calder, Young and Evans families crisscross and converge, a message of hope appears — it’s possible to emerge from tragedy stronger, and it’s important to come together with others, not just to survive, but to thrive. Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Ava DuVernay serves as executive producer.
