NBC’s “Chicago Med” has a casting out for extras.
The show’s casting directors have just released casting notices for scenes that will be filming in the Chicagoland area. The show needs lots of talent to work as paid background extras. There is a call out for general extras who are available to work in scenes on various days this week or next. Please see the casting notices listed below for all the details.
“Chicago Med“ is created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. The show is a spin-off of NBC’s popular drama series “Chicago Fire” (which is also filming right now). “Chicago Med” is described as “an emotional ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s most explosive hospital and the courageous team of doctors that holds it together”. In the series premiere, the grand opening of Chicago Med’s emergency department is interrupted by victims of an “L” train crash, pushing the staff to their limits.
“Chicago Med” is the 2nd “Chicago Fire” spin-off Dick Wolf has created for NBC. Just like “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.“, the addition of”Chicago Med” will include crossover episodes that will tie all 3 shows together.
