Background Actor Casting in Chicago for Chicago Med

10/27/2020

Get cast in a small role on NBC’s Chicago Med.

NBC shows Chicago Med & Chicago Fire are both filming new episodes for the 2020 season and new casting notices are out to fill a variety of small, extras roles.  All roles are paid and those wanting to work as background actors on the show must be local to the Chicago area.

The show premiered some years ago and is part of NBC’s Chicago themed shows which include crossover episodes between Chicago P.D., Chicago Fire and Chicago Med.

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.

About the show:

The city’s most highly skilled medical team saves lives, while navigating their unique interpersonal relationships. The Gaffney Chicago Medical Center’s elite team of dedicated doctors, nurses and staff face challenges each day as they do what it takes to treat their patients, sometimes in surprisingly inventive ways. As the city’s last line of defense, doctors Charles, Reese, Halstead, Rhodes, Choi, and Manning; nurses Sexton and Lockwood; and hospital administrator Sharon Goodwin embody the heart of Dick Wolf’s triad of Chicago series.
