The show is a crime drama and finds the characters getting into all sorts of trouble season to season.

The previous seasons of the show not only had different characters and stories, but, they were also set in different decades with season 2 going way back to the late 70’s.

Anyway, the new season is now filming and folks who live in the Chicago area are welcome to apply for a small, non-speaking, background role… if they fit the descriptions.
See below for the details.  Keep in mind that these are extras casting calls and to be considered you must be local to the area.
