Casting Call in Chicago for New Netflix Show “Tiny Pretty Things” – Extras

Extras casting call for new Netflix ballet dance show, Tiny Little Things.

Tiny Pretty Things is coming to Netflix. The new Netflix show is starting season 1 with a 10 episode order and should be hitting our TV sets sometime in 2020.

The show is now in production in the Chicagoland area and extras casting directors are looking for locals to work on set as paid TV show extras.

Tiny Little Things is written by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton. The show is based on the book and is described as “Black Swan” meets “Pretty Little Liars.” Actually, this drama is supposed to put the serious drama into TV drama. According to Good Reads, the story is a non-stop adventure of manipulation, backstabbing, fake smiles, frenemies and sabotage… enough drama in fact that they “already know our eyes are going to be glued to the screen just like they were to the page.” The book review goes on to also say… When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best.

Netflix describes their upcoming the series as…

Tiny Pretty Things” is set in the world of an elite ballet academy and charts the rise and fall of young adults who live far from their homes, each standing on the verge of greatness or ruin. As Chicago’s only elite dance school, the Archer School of Ballet serves as the company school for the city’s renowned professional company: City Works Ballet. The Archer School is an oasis for an array of dancers: rich and poor, from north and south, and a range of backgrounds. Yet they all share a rare talent and passion for dance, a loyal sense of community… and when it comes to their dreams, no Plan B…”

The Tiny Pretty Things cast includes Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber), Kylie Jefferson, Casimere Jollette, Daniela Norman, Brennan Clost, Michael Hsu Rosen (Jessica Jones), Barton Cowperthwaite (Center Stage: On Pointe, Fosse/Verdon), Tory Trowbridge (Broadway’s The Cher Show, American in Paris) and Jess Salgueiro (The Boys, Letterkenny) and others.

That show is filming now and folks in the Chicago area, where it films, have a chance to get into the act… so to speak, as a paid extra on set.
