07/17/2019

NBC’s “Chicago Fire” is in production of the new 2019 / 2020 season

The show’s casting directors are now booking talent to work as paid background actors on Chicago Fire.

Chicago Fire” is produced by Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf, the same man that is behind the very popular “Law and Order” franchise. “Chicago Fire” is now filming the new season in …. you guessed it, the Chicago area.  The show follows the lives of the men and women who work at the fictional firehouse 51. The high octane drama gives viewers a glimpse into the lives of firefighters, paramedics and rescue workers who put their lives on the line on a daily basis. The successful show launched a spin-off  called “Chicago P.D. a few years back followed by another spin-off  “Chicago Med.” This past year, NBC launched a 4th Chicago series, “Chicago Justice.”

That series is also currently in production in the Chicago area as are the other 3 NBC Chicago shows.

      All anyone can do is just send in the info. Casting directors for large shows will only contact people that they would like to cast. They may not reply to those that do not fit the immediate criteria so basically, you only hear from them if they need you on set. This is an extras casting call and most extras casting directors get way more applicants than they can use. If you live in the Chicago area, you need to be sure to only apply if you completely fit the needs requested (look, age, height, etc.)
