Extras Casting Call in Chicago For New Sci-Fi Show “neXt”

09/23/2019

Extras casting for new TV series neXt that is now filming in the Chicagoland area.

Chicago area extras casting directors are now looking to cast area locals to fill various small, non-speaking, extras roles.

FOX has a new show coming up in some months, neXt. The show’s trailer was released for Comic Con and provides a first look into the upcoming series. You can check out the trailer below.
The new series, neXt, is described as a sci-fi drama which stars John Slattery as a Silicon Valley pioneer. One of his projects is a very a powerful A.I. and the Silicon Valley exec realizes that his A.I. may actually be dangerous and may even lead to a catastrophic situation. After the A.I. goes rogue, a cyber-security team is brought in in an attempt to counter the artificial intelligence which has the ability to learn.

According to IMDB, the show also stars Fernanda Andrade, Michael Mosley, Jason Butler Harner, and Eve Harlow.

The show’s extras casting team made the following announcement regarding neXt:

We are super excited to announce we will be casting the extras for the new Fox show, “NeXt.” As always, we are happy to be part of the Fox Family.  4 Star Rock Stars – Alicia Samaan (extras casting director) and Miranda Basile (key extras casting associate) team up to tackle this project! Congratulations!

NeXt is an upcoming American drama television series created by Manny Coto for the Fox Broadcasting Company, scheduled as a mid-season entry in the 2019-2020 television season. The series centers on the efforts of a Homeland Cybersecurity team to counter “a rogue AI with the ability to constantly improve itself.”
